Im 5'2 and 130. would love to be at 118 as well. I used to be 248, and have maintained my weight loss for 10 years. But I have difficulty with the few extra pounds
Wow, big congrats for losing over a 100 pounds! That is awesome. I suspect at this point all you need to do is a little tweeking of your current eating habits. I find that a month or 2 of low carbs, higher protein and lots of exercise will do the trick. You already know how to discipline yourself, it is just a matter of finding a good time to get back into that mindset. I know you can do it! And that's why we are here.

So here I am again, documenting everything I eat.
Welcome back. Good job in catching the weight gain before it gets out of hand. I have to say that I have stopped and started logging several times over the last few years (it does get a little tedious sometimes) but in truth I think I will probably be a "lifer" on this sight. Nothing else seems to keep me accountable the way FitDay does.
I am confident that once you get back into the habit those extra pounds will drop right back off.
Well, it seems I'm better at dieting than I am at maintenance! After a week I've lost another .8.....So I was 124.2 this morning. I'm not complaining, mind you, since my goal of 125 was what I thought I should be. So I think these first few weeks will be a lot of testing the waters.
Wish me luck, though, because I'm off on a business trip to Chicago with all meals eaten out...I can do it!!
Have a great week everyone.
Goal Weight: 125

You can do it, Debra! Make a good breakfast and lunch choice, and enjoy your dinnertimes, as you will have the calories to do it. If you can grab a walk or 45 minutes in the hotel gym, do that if you can squeeze it in, to burn off any excess calories you may have done at your dinner with colleagues... Enjoy!
I am back again at 145. At least Im hovering where I've been for awhile, right?!? hmmm... let's see how this week goes... nice seeing you all!
