You can maintain your weight loss, I lost 7 stone and have kept it off for over a year, it is tough but believe in yourself and say this time things are different now and I won't go back to my old self.
Wishing you all the best for the future xx
I've just changed the title of this thread from "So... my Journey is Over..." because, in hindsight, I've realised that my journey will never be over until I pop my clogs! Now that I'm maintaining, I've accepted that it is going to be a permanent journey for me... a war against the demons that want me to re-gain weight and that it is going to take me a very long time before I feel I can relax. I won't be taking my eye off the ball for a long time. My commitment to lose the weight earlier this year, meant that it has come off in a short time, (5 months), compared it to the length of my 50-year life so far.... so it is going to take a long while for my brain to adjust to the new regime. That said, I don't feel like it is a battle.... more of a learning curve, with a liberal dose of nerves and lack of self-confidence thrown in. It's going to take me a good few months of maintaining before I think I will start to believe that I CAN do it......
I'm glad you ae continuing to post from the far away (getting closer) land we all want to visit!
So--now that it's been about a month, how is the maintenance going? Please keep checking in on this thread so we can collectively bask in your glory.
