Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
                             Hellen Keller

 This past week on maintenance I have learned one valuable lesson...I will  always have to eat in a controlled manner. I took last weekend off from the program, but really was out of control. I ate and drank what I wanted(heck I was celebrating reaching goal)  the results being that as of today I still have two pounds to get off.  This maintenance issue is more mental than than anything else. I have to learn that I am not going to be able to go back to my old ways, if I am to maintain the weight I struggled so hard to come by.  Yes ..this is going to be a trial and error period. My journey has really taken me to a new lifestyle.  I think keeping this weight off is going to be as challenging has having lost it..  The support Provida  offers is going to be so helpful now. There is a place I can go to read, get support, and be inspired! This certainly is not the end of my journey. It will take commitment to continue with my new, healthy, thin lifestyle.
 I have continued to exercise daily which includes running for an hour five times a week.  I have continued to eat six meals a day and drink at least 100 ounces of water.  I am now learning how to find the happy medium of it all...and  don't doubt for a minute that I won't.....
May you all find where you need to be mentally today to continue the process of healthy living....My wish  for you today is peace and harmony  from within.
