Hi everyone!!!

THIS IS MY FIRST WEIGH-IN OF THE MAINTENANCE JOURNEY!!! I LOST 1 POUND!!!! I am so very pleased, at best, I was hoping to maintain or even accept a maximum 2 pound gain after the week I've had. I think what saved me from gaining (and even permitted the loss) was that I never missed a workout and I made sure I had healthy meals as much as possible. I had CAREFUL FUN with my meals.

I did have quite a few drinks at the 3-4 events I attended in the past 10 days and this would not normally be the case - it's the festive season. I will definitely be maintaining this regime and enjoying myself through the holidays but come January 2nd, I'm back on the journey path...HARDCORE!! I've got quite a few plans for this upcoming year!! 2010 won't know what hit it!! LOL!!

I can't believe I'm in the 160's...that's just amazing to me. Anyway, I've got a lot to do today so this will be a quick post. Just wanted to let you all know that THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!!!

Until next time...
Joania (2KMINE!!!)

Hi there:

I saw you post on Tanya's Weight Loss journey group when she started doing this and I was on her page today to look at the pics of her little baby and saw your post and decided to check out your blog to see how you're doing. I have to say your results are absolutely amazing and I am so proud of you for what you've acheived so far and what you will achieve in the future. You sound and look like an amazing person and I wish you all the best. Congratulations!!!!!! :D

This is perhaps the biggest victory yet - to be past your year, and still losing weight.

Awesome! I, personally, am terrified of the maintenance phase. I am pretty accomplished at losing weight, but suck at keeping it off. I'm working toward establishing another fitness related goal (at time of maintenance) that helps to keep the level of intensity and focus going that I use to lose the weight. I can't seem to simply lower my guard. Keep up the great efforts!

You have done so well. Absolutely brilliant. Well done you.
I hope you continue to enjoy the festive season, and like you say, 2010 is just around the corner for us all to knuckle down again. !!
Have a fantastic christmas hunnie, and an amazing new year x x x x

you are doing GREAT.
people feareth the maintaining but if you simply stay in touch with your body (for me its the pair of pants I KNOW should fit without 'killing' myself) it isnt that bad.

you can do this!
