Maintenance is kind of a weird thing, but in a good way. I have weighed about the same weight (+/- a couple lbs.) for several months. I've considered myself at goal since December, but I've lost 14 lbs. since then so I'm not sure that really counts.
I suspect this is the longest period in my life in which I've been at the same weight. Always before I was gaining or losing. I stayed within a range of about 40 lbs. (between 119 and 155 or so) for most of my life. But from month-to-month and year-to-year, I was up and down. I still looked "normal". I wasn't overweight, at least not until I hit my 30's when I really started gaining weight. Then I put on 100+ lbs. in seven years. Some of it through pregnancy, but most of it through just throwing up my hands and giving up.
So it is really strange to see the same numbers month after month. At first, it frustrated me because I'd still like to lose another five lbs. or so, but I am pretty sure that wouldn't make much difference and it isn't going to happen without a bunch of effort I don't really want to put in SO I have learned to be okay with where I'm at. More than okay, very pleased to see that my eating plan and lifestyle or working for me.
I haven't been logging my food for a while so it is also nice to see that I am not deluding myself into thinking I am eating okay when I'm actually gaining. I put on 70 lbs. that way so I'm glad my Lap-band combined with my efforts really seem to be keeping me right where I want to be! I have spent several weekends out of town lately, either camping or staying in hotels and eating out, but I'm still holding steady. I feel really free!
