So Close to My Goal...Then What??
Monday, August 25, 2008
OK....so I am now 5 lbs from reaching my goal and although I have to admit that I am absolutely thrilled about it, at the same time I am a little anxious. I'm not sure what to do once I get there!! I mean, I get to my goal....then what?? I've worked really hard to lose this weight and I don't want to do anything to (God forbid!!) gain it back!! At the same time, I know I need to adjust my diet from what it is now....I mean, my body has been in "lose" mode for so long it doesn't know anything else!!
I don't see any groups or teams on SP for people who have reached their goals! Are there any??
I know this is going to sound really weird, but I actually have mixed feelings about reaching my goal. On the one hand, it's been the one thing I've desperately wanted for soooooo long and what I*'ve been focusing all my energy & determination on....on the other hand, now that I'm so close.....well, you get the picture!!
I don't think I would have been able to lose all my weight if I had not found SP & without the help of all of the great friends I've met & all the support I've received
!! So I definitely know I'm still going to need direction....I'm going to need help with the "maintenance phase" and I just don't know what to do....I want to do this right!! Basically, I've figured out how to lose it, now I just have to figure out how to keep it off!!
So I thought I would reach out there to see if anyone had any suggestions for me or any teams that are for people who have reached their goal!!
