I'm still around but I don't post much since I have been maintaining at around 107-108. My original goal was 113, then 110, but I have to say I like being below 110. However, I am about 3 inches shorter than you, so you would be fine at 110 and may find it easier to maintain in the long run. I would love to stay at 106 (saw it once last week!) and give myself a cushion. Meaning, if I hit 109, time to start getting stricter with the diet and exercise. I think you look great so my advice is pick a goal that won't be too tough to maintain. Especially in the summer. I know I tend to go out more and see friends and it's difficult to count every darn almond!

I'd love to join in, I've been struggling to maintain. Last summer I weighed 106-108lbs, i was maintaining that for a year. Over the winter I gained, was up to 122lbs. until recently. Just dropped 10lbs., knew it was time to diet strict. I really want to be at 108 again by August, that's my 2 yr. maintenance anniversary. I'm trying hard and not giving up this time, 4 lbs to go!

Hey fruitlady!!

I made my goal today ladies! I'm at 110.0 lbs. I don't know if I will adjust it or not but I definitely need to start exercising.

Ekicna- Yay!! you made your goal! Good to see you here!

kat999- Thanks so much, looks like your doing a great job too!!

My weight loss is stalling out, I've been the same weight for 3 days. These last 4 lbs will take forever & I'm starting to get cravings for sweets. I don't want to lower my calories, my limit is 1200 now. Can't go any lower!

Thank you!

Is there anything you can shake up in your diet? Maybe go off plan for a couple of days and then dive back in? Kick up the workouts maybe?

Ekicna- I'm doing the same amount of exercise I always did. I do more if I have an off plan day. But you have to be careful about how often you have off plan days, cause one day can lead to another. I maintained this long by making sure the weight I gained from a big eating day was gone, before i would do it again. Don't let it build up, you'll gain all the weight back. That was my mistake this past month, I overate, then was on plan for a few days. I overate again before I lost the weight from the first time. Soon I was 14lbs heavier than last summer!

It's just going to take time. Be patient, I'm sure the weight will come off soon.
