Hi Naomi..
Welcome..this is a great group and very supportive. Perhaps you could find another goal to work towards, either health-wise or personal to keep your momentum going. That seems to work for me. We are looking forward to getting to know you.

Congratulations on making goal..that is an awesome accomplishment.

Hello everyone! After reading some of your posts here i wanted to join, there are so many ideas that i can relate to! I'm feeling disoriented now that it's "sunk in" that I've accomplished my initial goal (not a "scientific" number).

i'm fighting my (mental) inertia...reality takes a long time to sink in with me! it's my personal demon that kept me from really working the program for 6 weeks when i started SP. now i'm having trouble with the transition to maintenance!

anyway, looking forward to learning from y'all!

Hi Mimi, and welcome. Wow, you are my hero! It is so encouraging to see someone who has kept the weight off for 3 years! I've been a yo-yo dieter all my life as well, but this time I am determined to make my weight loss and healthy lifestyle a permanent change.

I look forward to hearing more from you.

Hi everyone

I joined Sparkpeople.com and I'm delighted to see here "At goal and Maintaining" team.

Thank you ROLOHA for starting this team. A necessary and important one!

After doing the "Yo-Yo weight-game" for over 35 years, always with Weight-Watchers, this time around something clicked!

I've lost 44.6 pounds (every fruction counts.....), and I'm looking forward to celebrate three years of Maintenance on July 2nd, 2007 (coming soon).

TO HEALTH!

Mimi

p.s.
I lost the weight on the "Flore" plan.
I'm doing the Weight Watchers "Flex" plan, but using the philosophy, food list and practices of the "Core" plan.
