Hi All, Yes life is never easy. We need to work to obtain the weight we want to be at and to maintain that weight. We do it to feel good and be healthy. I am reading the Spark Solution and will be starting it on Monday. Best wishes Linda from bean town

First, I'd like to thank everyone who left me encouraging comments on my page. I want to be in this group even though I've been at maintenance weight (give or take) for a long time because things happen and one needs inspiration to continue every day.
Anyway, I used to be a couch potato (and felt ok!) until one day someone helped me to feel even better through exercise and better eating habits.
This to me was the key to future success... helping someone, which is what this group is all about. Even today you know something someone else doesn't know or can help someone do
something they didn't think they could do.
When I reached a weight I felt comfortable with, I found myself wanting to share the knowledge I gained with others. I've been working for the YMCA part time since then.
Teaching classes or even sharing with a friend makes all the difference.
Keep up the good work... Woo Hoo

The scale is a tool, not my goal. I have fitness goals like doing a pull up or I got signed up for a bike "race." I'd like to be able to play golf without feeling self conscious about my tummy. (I've never played golf...) I'd like to be able to dance (in public, in a satin dress). Mostly, I want to live to be 104. I once heard a news story about the longest lived couple, they had been married 83 years and I thought "I want to beat them." I guess that's one way of distilling my healthy living goals. I have others. I'd like to surf. I'm a big fan of the movie Point Break. Gosh, I haven't thought about a lot of these in a while, though I probably blogged about them more than once.

You are All so smart. I agree with you I need to track my food and exercise every day. I need to watch the scale to tell me if I am eating to much and not exercising enough. If I do not track then I may gain some back. I have gained a pound and then have lost it again. Linda from bean town

Now is the time to make friends with the scales. They guide me in what works for me on maintenance.

The stories and blogs of others keep me strong. When I see success stories they give me hope. When I read about setbacks I feel compassion and gain strength. Just knowing that these are real people with real lives succeeding at weight loss and most of all MAINTENANCE I am inspired, encouraged, and motivated! Tracking nutrition is another biggie for me. I skip a few days here and there but it is still very important to me, even after 2 yrs. this maintenance team and maintainers blogs are surely a strength to me. Keep Sparking!
