    Just popping in to give a quick update, and to say thanks again for the lovely comments since I last posted
    I'm pleased to be able to say that I'm now nearly four months down the line, and still loosely maintaining...it's not been easy by any means but I've never been more that 5-6lbs over my goal weight, but never more than 1-2lbs under it either!
    Ideally I'd like to average out 3-4lbs under my goal so that any special occasion wouldn't bounce me back over it, but I'm still working on that. Today I'm 10st 5.5lbs, but I've got my birthday coming up in a couple of weeks, so I'm trying to lose a little bit in preparation for that.

    Despite being four months down the maintenence road, I still don't think I've found my feet properly yet. I've become quite obsessive about calorie counting/food planning and I do find it difficult to be spontaneous and natural about food. I guess that's better than burying my head in the sand and piling lots of weight on, but I do need to find a way to live my life without food taking up so much of my headspace.

    But despite all that, I'm still very happy to be where I am now...it's still a buzz to be wearing size 14s and to feel just average when I'm out and about. I'm also starting to realise that I'm actually healthier and fitter than I've ever been before - I actually feel motivated to exercise and regularly walk 4-5 miles just for fun

    I'm sure this won't be the end of my story - I'm on Minis every day just browsing, but I don't often post these days for some reason. I'll make sure I come back and update this thread though, hopefully to say that I'm still maintaining...but I'll never take that for granted!

    Awh! Alex thanks so much for sharing your success and your maintenance. It would be lovely if you continued to share your ongoing maintenance as and when you can because it provides "hope" for the likes of me who has struggled and always failed at maintenance in the past. I've a bit more to lose but I'm planning my maintenance and it is good to know that immbeing realistic that it will be an ongoing battle until hopefully one day it becomes more natural.

    Keep doing what you are doing on the weight will stay off. X

    You've done brilliantly! Such an inspiration! I have to lose more than half my body weight and it's so daunting, but stories like yours give me so much more hope! Good luck with the maintenance, I hope you find your feet with it soon. X

    Oh wow I have only just read this story as I haven't been on Mini's for a while. First off a big congrats to you, you must be feeling so proud of your wonderful achievement. I had to laugh to myself when i saw the pics of you and the trousers! when you could get into one leg of them, seems unreal kinda! you are a true inspiration to people like myself who struggle and i wish you all the best in the future. :-)
