Mimi, that is just amazing! It is so inspiring to hear of these long-term weight loss maintenance stories. You deserve major kudos and should be VERY proud of yourself! I hope to be right where you are some day. I am SO sick of the yo-yo dieting and I'm trying like heck to be done with it forever.

I'm a yo-yo dieter, too, always able to drop the weight like it was nothing but never able to keep myself motivated to keep the weight off. This is my year, and I'm NEVER going back. I'm looking forward to announcing my three years of maintanence...in two and a half more years!!

Mimi - Thanks for sharing your pride and excitement with us! I am coming up on my own 2 year maintenance anniversary later this year and I know what a great achievement it is to know you are DOING IT!!
