Understanding Maintenance

2015 was meant to be the year for maintaining my new lower weight of 30+ pounds down.
In fact, though, 2015 turned out to be the year I put 15 of those pounds back on. (And that is something I was sure would NEVER happen.)
Lesson Learned: Maintaining the lower weight requires the same amount of effort and vigilance as losing the weight in the first place.

So, 2016 is the year I shed those additional 15 pounds again, and learn how to KEEP THEM OFF FOREVER.

How sweet, thanks for the note. You were one of my first Spark friends...Pennyann!
I'm making loosely knitted plans to start seeing Spark friends if I can. We have such close bonding. I've already hosted visits with Doglady13 several times as she visits her family in the next town. When I blogged about it later and provided "photo proof" I said it was like meeting someone I knew all my life but had never met.

Where do you stay in Arizona? I've been there a few times and enjoy the drastic changes from desert to mountains.
