I'm scared too. But I realized that that fear had kept me from even trying. In fact, before I started all this, I told my husband "Why bother trying to lose weight, I'll just gain it back, like before."

He said "With that attitude, you certainly will."

OUCH! I was ticked at him, but he was right.

I'm still scared, but I hang out a lot at the maintainers forum and I'm trying to do the kinds of things Glory talked about to keep it off when I get there. This isn't about losing weight, but keeping it off.

And as cemetarysiren said, the fear may help us from becoming complacent!
