Okay, I guess I'm a maintainer! :) As of about half an hour ago. So far, so good!

I have to admit that for me maintaining is scarier than losing. I've lost successfully. More than once! But clearly, maintaining it is a whole new kettle of fish. I'm looking forward to giving and getting support and tips from awesome role models like you lovely ladies and gentlemen.

Well done!! You made it to maintenance through the holidays no less. I agree with you that it's really different. Maintaining 5 months, I am still getting used to my new size and new sense of self. Learning what foods and amounts work entails endless choices as opposed to the structure most diets have. That means some missteps followed by correction & relief that the pounds don't all instantly return. You might consider getting a scale if you don't already have one. It's a useful guide.

Much joy to you!
