Default Three Year UPDATE

This is me very recently.

It took me seven months to lose 59 pounds. (My Goal Story is attached to my signature.) I've kept it off within a 2-4 pound range for two years, and have recently struggled to stay below my "red line" of 130.

I do not work out very much anymore, due to two torn ankle ligaments and excercise induced migraines. But I still enjoy "Fun Runs" and silly Zumba.

Hubby is deployed for the sixth time, and it has been hard emotionally. I don't have the motivation I used to have in order to make good food choices most of the time. It's a slippery slope! I'm back to basics now and feeling much better. I got the chance to live out a dream and pose for a 40s/50s Pin-Up photo shoot for my husband.

Although I don't post as much, I come on here every few days to check in and get reaffirmed in what I'm supposed to be doing. It keeps me accountable!

Beautiful pictures! & inspiring, too. You've done really well maintaining. I guess there's no endpoint at which we can all relax and let go of self-monitoring.

Well you are gorgeous and you have done great to keep the weigh off so long. not many people can do that apparently. Very very few indeed.

So don't give up. Keep choosing good foods. Have a look at the pics you took when you were your maximum height. That should give a bit of a reminder.

I don't think it matters that you don't keep on exercising but if you eat the right foods, you won't put on too much weight. Ie eat lots of vegetables and minimal junk food.

Good luck.

Thank you!!!

I've been feeling really down about the weight gain, even if it is "just a little". But seeing the stories on here have heat me in check. The reality of how easy it is to just stop caring for a while, then have that spiral.

Glad to see you're still around. Deployment has got to be a roller coaster of uncertainty and stress. I'm sure you're handling it well and keeping the family in line.
Push on some more!

You look beautiful! I've regained lost weight many times and I hope you can stay on track.

First goal: under 180:
Second goal: 175 or below:
Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):

Good to hear from you! And don't you look adorable in those photos! Maintenance is hard, no doubt about it, but you've done a great job keeping it in a tight range. Bravo!
