Hi Didi. It is a new thought process so take your time to settle in. As mentioned it is hard to go from one set of habits, losing, to andother. This has been a life saver for me and i think you will be happy you dropped by.

Don't set your limits until you have tested them...

Upcoming 2010 Races:
--2/14 Birmingham, AL Mercedes Benz full
--4/11 Martian Marathon
--4/25 Road Ends Trail 1/2
--5/1 Kenosha, WI Cheesehead Marthon
-6/5 Sunburst Hall of Fame to Notre Dame marathon, IN
-Rest...then figure out more
-10/10 Towpath Marathon
-12/5 Dallas Whiterock Marathon
-12/13 Run like the Dickens 10k
-12/31 New Years Resolution 8k-try for a 4peat

Hi Didi and welcome!

I think maintaining is just as much work (at least at first, until we create newer habits) as starting to lose weight is. Especially since it requires a slight readjust in how much we can "let" ourselves eat (more than weight loss, but not as much as pre-weight loss!).

Hi Didi,

Welcome and congrats on hitting your target!!!

I'm new to maintaining too - and am not great at it yet.

I think I've put such huge commitment into establishing great habits over the last 8 months that now I'm finding it difficult to change them.

I hope you do better than me!

All the best

Paula

Congratulations on reaching your goal and welcome to the Team. I just recently reached my WW goal and am also new to maintaining. We can learn to maintain together as I too am looking to other team members for their experiences, insight and support.

Happiness is within us all, it's up to us to find our joy - we can't expect others to find it or provide it for us.

The only 'real' thing in our lives thats an absolute constant is CHANGE...and somehow, someway, me must be willing to except and adapt.
