What an accomplishment! You're off to a great start and you seem to be determined! That is definitely the key to the last few pounds. I discovered that if you look at your new eating style as a permanent change to healthy eating and better long-term health, it is easier to maintain. I've been in maintenance for over two years and I think that the key to my success was to realize that I can never return to the highly "white" diet that I used to enjoy (sugar, processed carbs, etc.) It has honestly been easy as long as I stay away (most of the time) from those foods that lead to my downward spiral.

Thanks for posting this. I allowed myself enjoy some of our family favorite Thanksgiving foods. Posting my maintenance story has been a good reminder that today starts a new week. :-)

Good luck the rest of the way.

The last few years I worked out of the United States and got into some bad eating habits. My weight was 240 lbs 8-1-11 now I am at 196 and learning good eating habits. Thanks to SparkPeople. My goal is to be 180 lbs. I feel the last 16 lbs are going to be the hardest. But maybe the hardest will be to maintain the 180 lbs.
