    Thanks for sharing
  • I have reach my goal. I'm having trouble maintaining my weight I'm still losing. I have increased my Cal. decreased my excises but still losing Help
  • I think that the qualities/goals listed would be already in the works as we approach the goal - not just suddenly appearing as we reach goal weight.

    You must keep on eating the way you did to lose the weight!! Don't get over confident with yourself that you have a handle on it now! Been there, done that at least 7 times. It's never over.
  • These are far more ambitious than I am looking for but I sure can't wait to figure out what I will do! Over half there!

    I am still dreaming about that day!
  • Great article. I love reading such positive things! :)
  • I agree, enjoy now along the journey, not just later!
  • I really like that this article focuses on areas of our lives apart from diet, exercise and weight. Weight loss and maintenance do require quite a bit of effort for most of us and these are the kind of things that can fall by the wayside as we pursue our goals in those areas. And although losing weight is a huge confidence booster that can spill over into other areas of our lives, I think these are all things that people can work on regardless of whether or not they're actually at goal. Great points to ponder as we strive to live healthy, balanced lives.
  • First stop when you reach your goal is the Sparkpeople Team: At Goal & Maintaining or Transitioning to Maintenance. I highly recommend it so that you can stay at that goal weight and avoid the Yo-Yo forever!
  • I agree with TUBLADY AND LESLIESENIOR don't wait until you have met your goal. Enjoy each milestone along the way and never stop challenging yourself to be a healthier and stronger example to yourself and others.

    I too thought the article would be about maintenance.

    Of that list (parenting, career, partner etc.) I think I want to be doing ALL those things beside working on weight loss. This article makes it sound like weight loss is a full time job.
  • This article has great ideas for life goals and objectives regardless of weight loss. The idea that we need to wait until we're thin enough to live our lives is preposterous. Don't think that once you've lost the weight you'll all of a sudden be able to conquer the world. That's something that takes time and practice, and the "when I'm thinner" excuse will just turn into a different excuse once you are thinner!
