Prematurely Fat Free Me

I'm coming up on a milestone. And I don't want to jinx it, but I'm there. I know it.

Five years of maintenance coming up this fall. omg. The girl who weighed more in 6th grade than she does now has kept off her weight for close to five years. Wow.

I'm having a bit of a bad (knee) day so it helps to remember that when I feel like I have done nothing, I have come so far. Accomplished what many only dream of and I did it all by myself. No pills, no celebrity diet plans, no surgery, just a complete overall of what and how much I eat. And I stuck with it day after day, when losing turned into maintaining I kept on going. No end of diet start of life for me. It's all the same thing.

It's cliche, but if I can do, you can do it too.

Congrats on your maintenance! That is so great that you have "beat the odds", but I totally believe the long term weight loss can happen. You are an example of that.

When I hear some FA person quote stats about how people who lose lots of weight cannot maintain the loss, I want to scream and say it that that stat is not 100% and people do maintain for 5+ years and longer.

This is such an amazing accomplishment and shows how you can keep weight off. Your success gives me hope that I can do the same!
