Congrats and welcome!

I echo what Tina said about the Big Page of Links, especially the section titled "Transition to maintenance"
tinyurl.com/maintenance-links

And when you DO get to goal, don't forget to sign up to celebrate your maintenance anniversary!

Add my welcome to the mix. I love this team - they're SO friendly and helpful.

Maintenance is an adventure - in some ways much harder than weight loss and others, so much more fun. My favorite part is having other people around who are as interested in staying at goal as I am. Most people think if you've made your goal the journey is over - but we know - it goes on and on and you never stop learning new tricks.

Believe it
Do it
Become it

Hi Martha! We're at the same spot. These last 7lbs are proving STUBBORN. But we can do this. I'm grateful this team is here.

Welcome Martha! We all used to fade into the background once we hit goal, not a comfortable place, but now we have Spark and this team. What a difference it makes! It's wonderful to have fellow travelers on this journey of Staying The Same!

Welcome to the team. I think YOU are emoticon for your accomplishments so far....what a great job you are doing on getting healthy and staying with this journey. I've been on maintenance for 16 weeks now and am truly enjoying it. I still track my food / fitness. I like the self accountability. You have made it this far. You will make it on maintaining that loss.

Hi Martha! Congratulations on all your success and welcome to the team! It's great that you've joined up before reaching goal because many find the transition to be tricky. In case you haven't seen it yet, please check out our Big Page of Links. It was created by our leader 4A-HEALTHY-BMI, along with input from some of the other leaders here, and includes lots of useful articles, blogs and other resources all connected to different aspects of maintenance. You may find the 'Transition to Maintenance' section particularly useful at this point. You can find the document here if you're interested:

tinyurl.com/maintenance-links

Feel free to start up a new thread if you ever have any questions that you'd like to put out to the team and to ask me or one of the other leaders if you need anything at all.

Hi, my name is Martha. I just joined the team and I am looking forward to reading all the good advice here from all of you. I am about 7 or 8 pounds away from maintenance. I know I can learn a lot from all of you and look forward to being able somewhere down the line to pay it forward and help someone else with what I have learned. I think you are all emoticon because of what you have accomplished! emoticon
