I'm thinking about starting to hang around the maintenance threads a little even though I have 40lbs to go I know it will happen fast and maintenance is scary.
When I started IP, I had maintenance in my sites from the get-go. Mostly because of a previous significant weight loss and regain. After losing my first 50 on IP, I started lurking with the maintainers. I didn't post, but rather took the time to read and learn from them. I've learned if I really want to learn from others, sometimes I have to sit back and resist the urge to chime in.
Congrats to all who found success on the challenge! You all rock!
