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!

Dear Nell

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 .

So true!

41 years may sound like a lot, but it is just a string of One Day At A Time.

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:
