Anyone who remembers Wuv remembers her fussing when someone would report losing "only" a certain amount of weight and she would remind us any loss was a good loss. It's good to be back.
Absolutely…when I went to 3FC daily, it was a reminder to be good. I do enjoy all the threads, but it would be impossible to relate to being in maintenance for years if you are on it for the first time. I was so darn focused when I originally did phase 1 in 2010! I too was very focused for the first year to year and a half during maintenance. The more time I spend in maintenance the more I "allow myself to not be good!"

I told myself when I started this reboot (in September) that I would be at my low point (not goal weight, but 7 below) by my anniversary…May 28th. I lost 17 between September and October…took November and December offish…and now going to tackle the other 15 to goal.

So happy to have a group to check in with. Good luck everyone.

: each 5 gone!
