After seeing a zombie thread resurrected from 2009 recently, it made me wonder how many of those posters back then lost the weight they aimed for and kept it off and are possibly still here on MFP today...
So please share how long you folks have been at maintenance and how are you finding it.
Me? In July I will be in maintenance 5 years, the first year of aiming to stay within my goal range was hard, there were a few bumps along the way, but persistence paid off and from the 2nd year on it felt easy and normal. I feel the way I eat now has become so normal I hardly have to think about it. Plus I've continued to be active which helps.
I still log in daily here but more because I like interacting on the forums - its a fount of knowledge and woo
- but that keeps it interesting!
Thanks in advance for your replies.
