December Update

Well, I have achieved goals # 6 and 7 !!  (see goal list below)  Can you believe it?

Christmas is only 5 days away and I plan on enjoying the festivities without weighing and measuring every ounce but afterward I will get right back into this new disciplined life I have found.  I am thinking that maintenance will take just as much work as losing... There are too many examples out there of people who thought they could stop!  Maintaining success will come from following a plan having discipline just like achieving success came from following a plan and having discipline.

I will be spending a lot of time looking at my "plans/guidelines" list and tweaking them to reflect a maintenance goal.  I will post my new plan by the end of January.  I will also be looking for more new goals to add to list!
