How long in maintenance: 5 months
Goal maintenance range: 130-135
Current goal: Stabilize weight - I am getting close to finding just what my maintenance calories are (which have ended up being a a few hundred calories a day more than I had anticipated)
Recent success: Time for annual check-up, so had blood tests done. I started the weight loss process last year at this time because my cholesterol was 'borderline high' (210 total, with hdl/ldl ratio a 3) and my doc started talking about statins. Just got results and total cholesterol now at 159, so no meds :-)
Strategies: I have had some problems during maintenance with handling 'treats' (if they were in the house, I would over-indulge). Now that I feel I have a handle on calorie needs and am not undereating, I am experimenting with being able to handle treats in moderation. First item ... bought some ice cream cups (3 oz single servings, 90 calories). Will plan to incorporate them into food plan as dessert and not eat them indiscriminately. Ditto with a box of Fiber One bars, as they are an easy way to up calories on those days when I find that I am running below target.

How long in maintenance:3.5 years

Current weight: 132
Current goal: 131 (pre vacation weigh 5/8t)
Recent success: down from 135 (5/16-last week)
Strategy for your goal: add in some more cardio, better logging, skip the ever present summer desserts and limit to 1-2/wk. limit alcohol to average 1 drink/day (so. Many. Parties).
Shorts and some dresses are still feeling a little snug, and stomach feeling a little jiggly. Trying to remember when faced with yet more ice cream that I hate this feeling
