I am so happy!! Today was my anniversary of 6 months maintenance.
I have been so afraid of what would happen after I stopped "dieting" Would my old habits slip back? So far so good. Day by Day. I am trying to keep fitness goals. My exercise/cardio level is high. I started running about 4 months ago and finished my first 10k May 3. In two weeks I am doing a sprint triathlon with my 16 yr old son. It has been awhile since I have posted but I thought I would come back for my anniversary and check in more often.
Thanks for everyones support!

Tri training is a great way to keep the weight down and stay in shape. I did 2 last summer and they were great fun.Congrats on maintaining!

They say that people who set fitness goals (not just weight goals) are the most likely to succeed long-term. Congratulations to you! I'm so proud of you. Oh- and I left a comment on your blog in case you're wondering where it came from.

That is so wonderful, thank you for sharing your success! I want to be more physically fit too, so far I can only run about 1.5 miles though, but thats better then when I started:p Once I reach my goal I will have to learn how to maintain it properly, you are doing great so I hope I can too.

Way to go on your maintenance...and running your first 10K in May!

I'm starting the walk/jog thing and although for now I can't imagine myself ever running without stopping to catch my breath, I know from stories like yours that it is possible. Thank you for your inspiration!!!
