One year of maintenance mode down...

April officially marks for me one year of maintaining a healthy weight(Dec/Jan was my healthy lifestyle anniversary).

I know that I finished losing weight in the end of March of last year but I don't know the actual date. So that's why I made April my anniversary since I know it was all gone by then.

I thought to commemorate my maintenance mode anniversary I'd take you down a picture walk.

Before I start I want to say that my goal to lose weight was always about being healthy. I felt good about the way I looked. I just knew that the habits John and I had would lead to a lot of trouble down the road.

Christmas 2007 (-6 pounds)...



New Year's 2008 (-8 pounds)...



February 2008 (-14 pounds)



Beginning of March 2008 (-19 pounds)



End of March 2008 (goal met)



Last year as I got closer to my goal weight I actually got very nervous. I had been reading about maintenance tips and "they" said that maintaining weight loss was actually harder than losing it because the big goal would be gone.

Well, it's been a year now and I've maintained a healthy weight. Yay.



This is not the most form flattering outfit but I look very excited in this picture.

While I still think you were beautiful before, I think you look FABULOUS now. I think a good weekly topic for your blog would be diet/exercise/maintenance mode tips.
