Thumbs up If you are still here... hooray!

A study in the UK said that most people who 'start diets' as a New Year's resolution - stay on these food/healthy living plans for 3 - 5 weeks. So, if you are still here now - you are really 'on your way' to making some lifelong changes.

Pat yourself on the back and carry on!!! You have already beat the odds. You rock.

Yay for us! Thanks for the reminder. These weren't just stereotypical New Year's resolutions, but real changes.

Funny you should bring this up. Last March I was talking to my aunt who lives in another state. I told her I had joined a gym in January with a group of friends and was trying to lose weight. She joked, "So how many of you are still going to the gym 2 months later?" I can say - all of us - and we still are. and we've all lost weight.

I think the consistent members in here fall into a different category statistically. We're here for a reason. It's nice to be reminded that we're beating the odds - for the most part, anyway.

Yay =D...This board is funny because I was just thinking how my gym is already starting to empty out. I go to Planet Fitness and throughout Jan, I couldn't get a machine right away. And this one is HUGEEEE. A few days ago the gym looked like it did when I first joined ^_^ and I thought, guess people are starting to give up on their NY resolutions...I kinda secretly did a dance tho D;...because now I can go right to working out...

Great work to all who are hanging in there. Some people (not us!) just don't get that the changes have to be permanent.

And this is why I love 3FC, when I feel my motivation sliding I come here for a good dose of "you can do it". And this post makes me feel proud and happy for everyone who is kicking fat-***.

I think that sometimes those of us who keep on trucking don't give ourselves enough credit for how uncommon it is to keep going through a large weight loss. It really is quite extraordinary.
