I would love to see something for maintainers after weight loss on here, preferably before I get to the maintenance mode of my weight loss challenge. Proud of everyone who got it off and is keeping it off.

I agree! I lost 20 lbs. on SP almost 3 yrs. ago & now have gained some back {not tracking enough and other reasons} .

I agree... I feel that there should be a permanent reminder of how much weight you lost. We all need a "See how far I've come" banner to mark the victory of weight loss. That non-moving ticker can be a little depressing.

What a great idea. I do hope something will come of it.

Any other maintainers get bummed out by this message?

I would love to see an option for those no longer trying to lose to see a "maintaining" type of message for the pounds lost area of the start page.

For a long time it said 50 pounds lost, which was awesome - but then switching to maintenance mode I had to change the start/end weights to match so that my calorie range was accurate, but that erases the progress message, and replaces it with something that will never get better. Maybe it's just me, but mentally I'd love to see a slap on the back for kicking those pounds to the curb and maintaining a healthy weight, rather than a "you've done nothing yet" type message...

Just a thought... emoticon
