As I don't see any difference at all in what needs to be done to lose the weight and to maintain the weight loss, here is what I've gained:

Better health
my body is very flexible
More muscle, less fat
Determination to stay at maintenance for life
I can find so many cloths on sale in size 10-12
Energy
Looking good in jeans and any cloths
Understanding that I can't be perfect. There will always be ups and downs.
This journey is NOT an easy one. It requires work and effort. I now accept it and I'm willing to do the work it takes.
Swimming is my favorite exercie. I never thought I'll like any exercise

Most important is gaining good health.



I'll celebrate 13 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2017!

Besides the obvious....I will have knees and ankles that dont hurt when I exercise.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

Strength to persevere the ride. Competence to understand the journey. Mechanisms to maintain the destination.


Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. Remember Dance like no one is watching!!

I think I heard this sentence on a TV commercial.
It can apply to our journey of health.

emoticon What do you gain right now when you lose those pounds, one pound at a time?
