I am always impressed by the weight loss success stories that I read about on 3FC and elsewhere. However, I am even more impressed by successful maintainers.

I fully intend to make goal, but I also want to mentally prepare for what it's going to take to maintain successfully. The following article mentions some everyday, common sense aspects, including the "dull" part which I hadn't considered before: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/irene-...b_3893827.html
