“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Lita and Don and the team-
Thanks for the welcome! I'm excited to be doing this and I appreciate feeling already like there are lots of people on my side. This morning I got my mom sign up too, just based on everything I've gotten out of the site in the last 17 hours. Have a great day everyone!

My son, a neurosurgical PA, just left Baltimore earlier this year. He was there for a year and there was a lot about Baltimore he (and I too) liked, however the fit wasn't right between he and the hospital. We're going to miss our visits to Baltimore. He lived in the Locust Point area and I had a really cool jogging route worked out between Fort McHenry and two other local parks up & down Fort Avenue.

I'm a day shift nurse on a high-acuity IMC in Baltimore city. I'm single, no kids. Hoping to make some lifestyle changes for myself as I go through this process. Tracking my food and not getting discouraged enough to quit will be my biggest challenge, as always. My second biggest challenge will be adding activity. Since I'm on my feet all day at work, I have trouble convincing myself that a. that isn't really exercise and b. that I need to do stuff on my days off as well. I think I've finally outgrown (mostly) emotional eating and eating when I'm bored which is huge for me, and pretty much a 20 year struggle so I'm quite proud of that. I had maintained my weight at 180, not necessarily at goal, but at least better, and hey maintained, for a couple years until may when I got sick for several weeks. Since then, thanks to new medications and not having much energy at all, I have steadily gained almost a pound a week. Today this stops, so I'm getting motivated and trying to use every tool available to me.
