Pam, as I've said, you continue to inspire all the time... thank you for that! Do you have a tiara that says,
"Queen of Maintainers"? 'Cause you have certainly earned one! Congrats on another successful race!

I'm sure someone mentioned it but I find that preplanning my meals at the beginning of the day helps. Even if I go off, I have some kind of ballpark idea of things. I think it's helped me lose the last four pounds I've lost. I have 8 more to go. At this point though, I would be THRILLED to be under 130: 3 more pounds.
For health reasons, I cannot exercise the way I used to but so far, walking has been good so I'm gonna keep going with that, adding some small exercises a bit at a time.
You guys hav some serious jobs and have accomplished a lot personally and professionally!!! Two pound is very doable, I think, frustrating as it is. I love the idea of the "fake out" though.
Lori, Chris, Pam, we'll get there. We just have to keep at it, even if we have set backs.
So I posted something elsewhere and haven't gotten much of a response, so I figured this was the proper thread for it - what if I feel like I hit my goal now? My weight is stuck at ~145 (my goal was 130) but I'm happy with the way I look and despite my efforts it doesn't want to budge. So should I ease up? Or continue on? I'm at a healthy weight now, and my goal would be healthy too (oh the curse of the last 10 lbs XD)
Congrats, first off! The thing is, it's completely up to you. What if you took a stab at maintenance for a while and see what happens? I actually continued to lose a bit while figuring out the maintenance thing. If at some point you want to kick back into loss mode, you know how to do it! Or you could focus more on a fitness goal than a weight goal at this time.
