I am very new to maintaining. I am always the one to lose weight and gain it back. I reached my goal weight of 145 on Feb. 14. I lost 114 lbs in 1 years time. I am definately going to need support on this maintainig part. The daily battle is very hard when you wear a size 8 and everyone is telling you how good you look. I can easily eat one fat meal and not gain any weight, it is just that the one meal turns into two, then three and so on.
I am definately going to need a shoulder to cry on from time to time. No one here in real life understands how hard maintaining is. I recognize some of your names from the support groups and weight loss forums and am looking forward to getting to know everyone here.

Thanks for all the support. This weekend my eating was horrible, but I have learned to jump right back on the wagon. So look out eliptical trainer here I come.
