I believe this forum would benefit by having a thread for those in maintenance. Now it's kind of hit and miss, finding the J of somebody who's "declared." What do you think? Is it too much pressure? I guess people could falsely pretend, but the BS meter is pretty strong here.

Congratulations, barb712. Milestones are helpful for me. Every one of them.

I would love to have an active maintenance thread to go to where we can check in on each other, give support, compare notes, etc. Not just posting numbers but sharing experiences.

Exactly! However, there are some people who thrive with the kind of security posting numbers brings. I'm not one of them, but I understand that we all have different needs. Maybe that's why the Admins haven't set up a Maintenance thread.

We'll just have to be satisfied with our own.

For now I'll just say that holding firm during the "Happy Holidays" will be my single-minded goal. Get through to the New Year without carbage collection.

bluesinger - Yes, me too, holding steady during the holidays is my focus as well. So far, so good - but we're just getting started!

cshepard - thanks - It would be good to revive some of these threads!

It's been a long time since I visited here. I started the thread at a lower weight than this old body wanted. My goal now is to stay at 140.

Maintenance is hard, and the older the body gets the harder maintenance becomes.

I now wear my Fitbit tracker on my left ankle to record all steps. Most days I hit close to 10K. Twice a week Yoga classes-1.5 hours. Strict adherence to LCHF eating. I had to give up most dairy because I was prone to overeating it.

Quote:
Did you know that fitness trackers work on arm swings? Pushing a grocery cart or baby carriage steps are left out. Treadmill steps aren't counted at all.

Still in excellent health with no pain, no apparent disease and excellent mobility. I'm even enrolled in a college course and doing volunteer work for a local Women's Shelter called Safe Nest.

Life is as good as it can be under the circumstances.
75 is on the horizon.

Health is so important as we get older, well done on how you are managing yours.
I used to think it was inevitable that we would lose weight as we got (frailer) . Seems that's not always the case. Guess following your example, eating properly and keeping as active as possible should be my aim.
