I'm 27 years old and have successfully lost some much needed weight. I want to learn ways to lose weight and keep it off now that the "diet" is over. I'm super motivated and ready to change!

I am 24 weeks in on my new healthier lifestyle. I've lost 41.7 pounds so far and am feeling great! I am ready to start maintaining and am a bit scared. The maintaining part will probably be much harder than actually losing the least for me. I've been reading and researching ways to maintain and not sabatage myself once I reach my weight goal. I CAN DO IT!!!

My Goals:
I've lost 41.7 pounds so far in 24 weeks and I'm proud!
I have lost the weight before and sabatage myself by going back to my old ways shortly after I get down to a desired weight. NOT THIS TIME!

My Program:
129.9- cute new dress to wear at a wedding.

127-new jeans

125- My Goal!!! Go out and celebrate with Friends!!!:-) BMI of 22.5/ MET MY GOAL!!!!!

After meeting my goal of 125, I decided to make my goal a bit less. I'm just planning to lose 2 more pounds.

New Weight Goal- 123/ MET on 8-13-11

I have decided that I am stopping at 122 and then starting maintenence.

Personal Information:
I'm 27 years old and a teacher. I am starting at a new school this year teaching 3rd grade transitional English. My school is a mile outside Chicago. I'm SUPER excited to start, but a little nervous that I won't be able to keep up with my healthy lifestyle....I CAN DO IT!

Other Information:
I'm always looking for ideas and motivation. :) Feel free to add me as a Spark friend and we can work on this together!

    OH THANK YOU for replying to my quandary so quickly!:))

    I DID increase my dumbbells from from 10# to 15#!!! why would that make me gain weight though? Muscle and fat weigh the same. A pound is a pound. A pound of muscle just is more dense & takes up less room! BUT! Could it be the lactic acid and more fluid? I am more sore than usual. GEEZ I HOPE THAT'S IT! IDK about TOM no schedule there, nothing new! LOL;)) I AM retaining A LOT of fluid. I can tell by my fingers. I have issues in that dept. I take meds for it EVERYDAY! Have been for 5 years. So, maybe my sodium is just crazy. But, I get to the point where I just want to eat regardless. I am well within range and exercising sufficiently. Really more than enough but not too much. I look at my daily differential everyday. It not quite 500 but close. So, I shouldn't be gaining!

    Thanks for taking the time to think about what might be the culprit! emoticon emoticon
