Everytime I weigh, it surprises me, just like you I weekly weigh to check if I keep my weight or loss or gain. My goal is to keep my weight so I am weighing in weekly. Thanks that it does not go up or go down... sometimes I gain minimal say 0.5 kg so I watch my diet where my weight goes up. Lol, it keeps me on the right track.

It can be fully of surprises...that is why I weigh myself daily - that way it is a little surprise rather than a big surprise! :shock: :lol:

It is good that you feel on top at the moment...enjoy it while it lasts! :)
...not that I'm wishing you ill - its just that the weight loss journey can be a bit of a roller-coaster ride at times (as I'm sure you know from your own experiences). Make as much hay as you can at times like this...these periods of success will help motivate you when it gets tough again! 8)

The real success is not when you're losing weight, but keeping it off.
I don't consider myself successful, nor am I cocky enough to think I'm winning!!!
I'm doing well, that's true but I won't have succeeded until all the weight is gone and I've kept it off (or maintained a steady weight) for at least a year!!!
I'm always mindful of the fact that we can easily turn from "fab to flab" with just one bite of the wrong thing (ie. trigger food) and it can snowball downward (or upward) from there!!! :shock:
Complacency is an enemy to success, always WATCH YOUR BACK!!! :wink: :lol: :lol:

oh isn't it just... :lol:
and sometimes you just feel like you need a good feed....
that's the thing when the scales are going down I try and make the most of it,but if I stay the same on the scales for a week I understand that its my body getting use too the new numbers and it will re boot in a few days/week..or I have too change something and rattle it up a bit...
I would love too be 85 by my next trip away,so gives me 3 weeks we will see what happens,
my new dress I brought is way too big but that's ok as I kept the docket,so looks like its back too
the drawing board with knowing what too wear...:-)
I will have too take some photos but hope I don't make anybody green... :mrgreen: :wink:

I'm glad that you understand that sometimes no movement on the scales in your daily weigh in can mean consolidation. It is an important thing to understand or what is perceived as non-progress can throw you for a loop! This sort of knowledge shows that you are getting a real handle on losing weight. 8)

Regarding the dress...I think we all do that (with clothes I mean...I don't wear dresses - it would make my wife cry :shock: :lol: ). I've bought stuff that I had worn only a few times before it became tent like on me. We are itching to get into good gear but forget that we still have some more way to travel! I still have a few things in my closet that I need to clear out because I'm simply never going to wear them again. Bottom line - this is all one problem that we don't mind having, right? :)

True, real (ultimate) success is reaching goal. Some believe that it is reaching goal AND keeping it off for a year (I once was in that camp). The further you travel down the path you become aware of the danger of those that have failed after TWO year mark! I can vouch for that danger.

The last month or so has been the toughest time in all my maintenance. I've had a lingering cold, lots of things competing for my time and metabolism that suddenly become resistant to exercise...I would exercise harder for a less return for effort than before. It has only been in the fortnight that things have returned to normal cruising speed. I would ready place the marker at two years...if for the nagging thought that this sort of thing can reoccur again and again. I guessed it well to have put it correctly in my signature..."keeping it off for life" - there may be never a time for complacency! :shock:

Having said all that...the (smaller) successes do motivate you and keep you going during the journey to reaching the goal part of it. All through my journey I made sure that I didn't get cocky...if anyone ever asked me how much I had lost I always answered "I've lost X amount but I've still got X amount to lose" just to keep it in perspective. But on the other hand, writing my losses down daily - weekly - monthly was a great driver to keep me on track and keep me going. I would pour over the numbers and delight that I was making progress. Measuring that success in every percentage that I could find (weight loss ratios in kilos, pounds, fractions or percentage). Whereas I totally understood that 87 kilos off was my ultimate goal...my nose was always pushing to those smaller amounts along the way. Every one of those targets was only two to five kilos away and each success I had in reaching them would propel me to greater achievement.

Funny you should mention that, the issue of "long term weight loss success/maintenance" and links to networks ie. "cyber communities" (forums, groups etc) was a major point of discussion last night between myself and a couple of visiting research Fellows, whose observations showed that these social networks are able to accurately pin point a person's success merely by the manner in which they express their "success" (to date)!!! It was sooooo very interesting!!!

I would hate to think what they would have made of me...I joined the Forum AFTER I lost my weight!...I can see them now - "obviously insecure with how he perceives himself with regarding to the possibility of failure at losing weight...unable to commit to accountability...comes after weight loss - so that he can rub his clean linen into other people's faces to bolster his low self esteem "...etc etc etc.

The real truth is that I never thought about online Forums for weight loss...if only I had - it would have been so much easier! :lol:

Love to hear what the experts think about Forums.
To me the greatest value that these Forums have is that it is peopled with those who know the problem from the INSIDE. These last two years since losing weight I've read an awful lot of books on weight loss. Some are fine, others great whilst others aren't worth the paper they are written on (what a waste of a fine tree!). The best of all these books (and they are only a very tiny segment of the market) are those written by those who have lost significant amounts of weight. They aren't just writing about the subject - they are living it.
