I'll kick off with the announcement that this morning, my regular weigh-in day, I saw a weight on the scales which I haven't seen for years - 142.7 pounds or 4.3 pounds below my target! As some of you may recall, in the October maintenance topic I announced that I was going to attempt to lose a few more pounds and so this month I have cut down (but never out!) my carby treats and late evening snacks.
I only have a fortnight left before I head off on a two-week holiday so I realise that my currently empty fat cells will delight in wall to wall food and fill themselves straight back up again! However, if I can go away with the knowledge that I have been at or near my revised target, I am hoping that it will encourage me to shed some of the inevitable regain before the Christmas eating begins!
Good luck to all of you maintaineers, out there! Keep posting! I It really does encourage the newbies, who have just started on their weight-loss journey, to see how many of us are still maintaining after months and years of this WOL.
