Five years! What a wonderful accomplishment, CAROLJEAN - and it bodes so positively for the future! Keep up the outstanding work, and I'm sure your body will keep thanking you, too.

In August I will have my 5 year maintenance anniversary. I love the fact that my body is now used to being treated well and let's me know very quickly and very blatantly when I have over stepped decent eating and healthy activity.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

Awww...thank you so much, LJR and CAROLJEAN! You really made my day!

I didn't realize the impact of the stats you've quoted here, though - wow! So after another year of maintenance, the likelihood of regain will only be 50%? THAT is REALLY something I can look forward to!! Thanks for the huge shot in the arm; it serves as great incentive to "keep on keepin' on" :)

All the bestest,

Susan

These are important milestones!*

Here is the list of maintainers:
