Welcome to the forums! I'm another old-timer, back from '00-'01. I, too, lost a bunch of weight and thought I could go it alone. Nope.
So, for some of us continuing to log our food/activities even after we reach our goal is going to be a very good idea.
Looks like you figured out how to use the forum, so jump right in, plenty of friendly, supportive folks here!
