Congratulations on the first year. That is the toughest hurdle.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie I live in CT, EST.

I lost 122 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.






156 Days until:  summer

Sometimes it's not easy to get motivated to workout or go to the gym. But when I am finished, I have NEVER once said, "Gee, I wish I didn't do that."

I'm at work (tying on my phone so please excuse the errors, I can't see what I'm writing) and I see that I have a message on my page. Two lovey ladies have congratulated me on a year of maintance. I nearly started crying.

See I pulled away.from this group in the spring because I was a "failure". I gained back 15 of the 67 pounds I had lost. Then I see that message this am and realized - I have maintained a 50 pound loss. And I am losing again. So thank you. Sometimes you don't know what a little support can mean!

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%*!
