Yes, without a doubt losing weight is just the very beginning of the journey. Maintaining that loss - yup, got to be in it for the long haul, as it is an ongoing, never ending process.
Come on over and take a look at the Maintainer's Forum. Lots of folks there who have reached their goal and having been doing just that - maintaining that loss for years and years.
Losing weight and keeping it off IS a doable thing. It most certainly does take a lifetime commitment though. Like all things that are worthwhile, it takes hard work, time, patience and yup - commitment.
