Back at goal!

Recommended Posts

After a year on Maintenance, I became a little too complaisant. Heck, I didn't need meetings anymore or journaling. I really felt I was sticking to the program.

 

Then 6 months later I noticed that my jeans were getting snug. When I got on the scale I noticed that 7 pounds were hiding somewhere on me. :eek: :eek:

 

I got back on the routine so fast my head was spinning. It took 3.5 months to lose those extra pounds - almost 3x longer than it took the first go around. I learned my lesson. Those monthly WIs for Lifetimers are important. It keeps you focused on the portions, water and exercise. wave.gif

I know exactly what you are talking about... I did the same thing, but I wasn't as smart as you--I waited until I had 30+ pounds to lose again after I reached goal... It took a long time to do but I am very committed to going for my monthly WI and making sure that I don't get in that situation again.. Congratulations for getting back to goal.. Sharon

grainne,

 

a big thumbup.gif to you! i'm in the same boat -- it took about 20 pounds for me! and yes, it seems like the weight is coming off sooo much slower than it took me to lose it.

 

like you, i'm learning my lesson. i'm actually going to continue to go to meetings every WEEK when i'm lifetime again. it can't hurt to take an hour out of my week to reaffirm my healthy lifestyle.
