    Sounds like where I started many years ago! I originally was 294. As of today I am 184. I promise you, if I can do this, you can do it. Just have to decide that you are never turning back.

    I have kept my weight off for years and everybody asks me what the secret is, I will tell you. The secret is, it's forever and you don't give up. You don't expect overnight results, slow and steady wins the race, and you understand that you are not "off or on" or "good or bad" according to what you eat. If you eat more than you usually do for a day, ask yourself how you truly feel after and the next day.

    Anyways, keep it up, you are doing great! I have been maintaining my weight about 3 years but now that my youngest is a little older, I feel like I can strive for a new goal weight, so popped back to MFP for some friends along the way :)

    Keep going, you're doing great! And don't worry about going up again for your sons birthday, life still needs to be enjoyed!

    Do keep saying you can do it! BECAUSE YOU CAN. You're already doing it, so all you gotta do is carry on :)

    Try to also focus on your clothes and how they fit. Your weight can fluctuate a lot due to many different things, so having other things to measure your progress is good too.
    I lost some weight, enough to drop a dress size. So I bought some new jeans.
    Weights creeped up about 6lbs and I can feel it in the jeans (I only just about squuezed into the lower dress size, I was at the upper limit of comfortable lol)
    But now they're feeling a little tight so that helps too.
