HA. I remember being at this EXACT weight that I am today when President John Kennedy was assassinated. And thinking that I was a Cow. I am so not a cow at this weight.

Even the Pillsbury Doughboy is thinner than he was back in the 60s.

I can't work put who was president when I morphed into the Pillsbury Dough Girl. All I know is getting back is taking me a long time. But, I hope to make it to my goal weight in a few months and want to make sure I learn some important lessons before then

I'm around a first Reagan Adminstration weight, basically less than I've weighed since I was on my way to my adult height. And planning ahead is a big part of this team, as well as remembering!

I guess I'm not such a great planner because I'm about 3 pounds from goal and now wishing I'd started preparing myself for the transition a little sooner. Hopefully the "better late than never" theory will apply here. emoticon

I think of this in terms of my "fighting weight." I'm officially a lightweight now, between 130-135 pounds.

My basic eating plan has been the same from the beginning, so I feel I've always been in maintenance. What has changed is the content of my meals as my appetite has reduced. I joined this team long before I reached normal BMI range.

This, or something close to it, is your eating life now and in the long run. And the rest of life is waiting!

This is so cute, I have tracked my weight over the years in a lot of ways but never by the presidential timeline :). I think the first time I realized there Was a president was Eisenhower so I had to have been a partly lucid child then. I have a rotten cold so I am going to hang around Spark today to keep from feeding it. Glad this new team is here

As someone born in the Truman administration, I love thinking about time like that. I got fat during the Johnson administration, lost it on WW during the Nixon administration, and have kept it off for the Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and now the Obama administrations. I figure that time do fly, so I might as well stay On Plan. Looking back I may have regrets, but it isn't about my weight. I may kick myself about something I said, but never about what I ate. And, for me, that is what maintaining is all about.

Wow! Very good! It is great to plan ahead. Maintainers are not perfect we lose a little and gain a little but stay about the same weight. It sounds like you are still losing and you are welcome to be here. You will not be the weight you are if you want to lose more for long. Staying at a weight for a little while means you are balancing the calories you took in with the exercise you are doing. You may need to eat a little more or exercise a little more. If you change some thing then you will most likely to lose again. Linda from bean town emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hey I like the idea of being ahead of the game! I have lost pretty sensibly over the months and I am not doing anything to lose weight I can not maintain. I am retired so it has been easier than before. My time is mine. ( at least the time my wife doesn't have scheduled). I got a fitbit and love it as a tool to track exercise and motivate me to stay on track. I have incorporated a lot of items I have stolen from others already. So I am always open to learn from others experience. I am now down to my weight in the first term of the Clinton administration and would like to get back to Nixon weight. I have away to go still.

Glad to be here, glad you are here too! New beginnings!

O, that this too too solid flesh would melt
Thaw and resolve itself into a dew!
