Since then, it has been a pretty typical weight maintenance journey. Ups and downs...gains and losses...starts and stops...you get the picture. I am in this for the long haul and although I have regained 10 pounds, I still feel like a success story because I haven't given up and....I am STILL here!

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Person Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 People who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful

You can do whatever you set your mind to! Blessings!

Congratulations on your one year anniversary (even if you are 6 lbs over goal). All maintainers battle a few pounds now and then. Encourage you to stay with it!!
