Healthy You Challenge Week 27

Hard to believe it was just a week ago that I was checking in and celebrating meeting my goal! But I am happy to say that I am still maintaining under 160 and nothing really has changed in regards to food and exercise. I think sometimes people think that they meet goal and then they can just do whatever they want. The reality is, it still takes a lot of work to keep on losing or maintaining.

I got in 5 days of exercise again this time around! Very happy about that. I am hoping this will help me lose the next 10 pounds. I know my eatings on track and Im not about to eat less, so I guess its exercise that will help do the trick.

oh and I almost forgot! I have gotten a lot of requests for before/after pics. I definitely will post some as soon as I remember to have my boyfriend take one. Maybe this weekend since I will probably have my camera on me at some of the cookouts we will be attending.

I think the transition from losing to maintaining must be daunting for people who actually get to goal, that feeling of 'what now'.

Exercise is key to maintaining a healthy weight, but it's also important for some many other reasons!! I'm addicted to it, and although it took many years for me to feel this way, now I'm determined never to get out of shape again, as long as I can walk! Good job on maintaining the weight, I hope to get there too one day :-)

Congrats on maintaining! It is hard to keep motivated when you aren't being rewarded with a lower number on the scale but you seemed to have figured out the healthy lifestyle. You should be so proud of yourself (I am).

I can't wait to see pictures!

Oh man, maintenance scares the cr@p out of me! It's scary for me to think about increasing my food intake like WW says you need to and not fear gaining weight. It's a whole new world of learning I guess. You are doing great! Congrats on getting all your exercising in.

Congrats again! For me, maintaining has to be easier than losing. Exercise is key, I think.

i think maintaining is just as important as losing the weight and can sometimes be just as hard to find the happy medium that keeps it all together. At least you know you can't just push all those great life changes you made to get where you are in order to stay where you are now.

Maintenance is all about attitude and I think you have the perfect attitude! knowing that the train doesn't stop here and that you have to keep up the exercise and good eating habits you've acquired will stand you in good stead.

Good luck and well done!
