Y'know, I fully intend, somehow, to get you on a pulpit with a bullhorn and make folks hear ya. Rock it out, my dear.

Best,
Russ Lane

-- Lost 200 pounds while food writing, and maintained it 10 years
-- Went from pizza-guzzling wallflower in rock clubs to (very) aspiring boxer and artist in his spare time
-- Hit goal and felt a little thrown to the wolves. Dedicated his life to increasing support for those at or nearing goal and eeking every possible amazing thing out of it.

Limits? Pah.

Nell,
41 years is an amazing victory and inspiration to all of us. You really can make maintenance a permanent life change thanks for being here. Your one day at a time keeps me focused

To decide on a weight is to decide on the life you want to live.

I'm pretty sure that Jean had years she was not at goal. Not discounting her contribution, but I think what you have accomplished is impressive indeed!!

There are plenty of WWers lost weight before I did and have maintained it. Seen a photo of Jean Nidetch lately? She's on a walker but still at goal! THERE is a hero!! She made it possible for so many of us!

These are important milestones!*

- The likelihood of regaining weight when you reach goal is 80% - 95%.
- When you've maintained for 2 years the likelihood of regain drops to 50%.
- When you've maintained for 5 years the likelihood of regain drops to 27%!

Here is the list of maintainers:
