Glad to have found this thread and see so many people in the same boat. I reached my goal in June and over the last 6 months until Christmas have gained about 5 to 7 pounds. I was OK with that as I felt good, all of my new clothes still fit, I was making decent food choices and felt that I was maintaining my new weight pretty well. Then a few days before Christmas something happened and my sensible eating went completely out the window and I found myself eating cookies, candy, carbs, etc. And I gained about 6 more pounds in the past week and a half. It's so scary how fast it can come back on! My clothes still fit but I do not like how tight they are and looking in the mirror I can see the puffiness that has been added to my body. I'm not happy with myself and restarted yesterday. It's not easy to get back on track but I keep telling myself that I worked way too hard for 11 months to lose 95 pounds to just throw it away and gain it all back! Looking forward to all of the support here.
