The pasture gate at my Mom's in rural Oklahoma where I grew up. Sunrise or Sunset are my favorites but I will take any of it.

It was the beach, when I lived in Miami. Now that I'm in Snellville, GA, I like to walk to the park & sit by the lake. Water is so serene.

At the Biltmore.

I love wandering through history and then having a nice glass of wine and watching the world pass by.

I love going up there when I am stressed out. Brings me back to my center - especially when my daughter and I get to go together.

CET (Europe, Hungary)

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings
