Absolutly! I'm really afraid I'm not going to know what to do with myself! But really, is life going to change? Am I going to step on the scale and hey look 148! Awesome let's go get cheeseburgers...um NO! I'm going to go about my day as a usual on plan day. Part of me is SO ready to be a maintainer and just focus on being healthy and fit, but part of me is terrified to see the scale stop moving - it's been moving for 4 1/2 years!

I'm having a little trouble identifing with my new self image as well. I went from obese to overweight over a long period of time and there was a lot of opportunity to adjust. But this year I've gone from overweight to chubby to normal and now in just the last few weeks from normal to normal/thin. This last transition is where I'm struggling...and where I think all the ambevalance is coming from. I'm just hoping that I know when I cross the finish line - I really want to be completely satisfied when I get to the end. But I may have to accept a little tummy to keep the girls We shall see...
