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.
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!

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
You are an inspiration to all members of this team. You have found what works for YOU 41 years ago, and your commitment to the WW EXANGES plan is amazing. You are certainly my roll model. I allways read you posts and learn so much from you .
as you' said, your 41 years of maintenance are made out of "one day at a time" little diamonds. You've created a beautiful necklace. So true!
please continue to show us the tools that made you maintained your weight for 41 years, WOW!
best wishes and Merry Christmas to you and your family

I'll celebrate 12 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2016!
- 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%!
