Congratulations on successfully reaching your goal!
This week marks my 1 year of maintenance. However, with the holiday's and a bit of over confidence I gained back 5 lbs. UGH! I am still UNDER my maintenance goal, but not my personal ideal which I reached 'accidentally' after I went into the maintenance phase.
I lost another 10 lbs. just by maintaining my new eating habits and picking up more activity in the spring. I liked that bonus loss, but then, I lost another 6 pounds and more than I wanted, so started into a big juggling act of eating more/eating less trying to get it just right.
I've realized, for me, my addictive compulsions are just subdued and raring to relapse so I realized early on I MUST not let my guard down too much and must always be mindful of my eating. The biggest, hardest challenge is reminding myself that I am worth it.
Wiggle room on my weight! Getting consistent with exercise tipped the scales . . . in a good way~just don't think I need to lose any more--just get firm and fit!
