49. WUNNNNNNNNNNNderful!!! Absolutely superb news!

Husband and I have been on Nutrisystem since early November. It seems to work best for us and we’ve both lost weight. He’s feeling TONS better, too.

I went to my Tai chi class this morning (1st since New Year’s) and one of the women hugged me and commented that there was less of me to hug!

Now, the challenge ahead will be to develop those habits you’ve built for your own maintenance. We’re not near finished the slim-down part, but the real test comes, as you well know, when you’ve lost the weight but want to KEEP it off. And you have to start looking deeper into what you’re buying, what/how much is in it (for him it’s sodium), wise carb management, and as Mad-Eye Moody cautioned Harry Potter, “CONSTANT VIGILANCE!!!”

Taking it off is the easy part. Maintaining the new weight and smarts about eating? THAT’S the real killer.

OUTSTANDING job, Marthe48! What a great achievement! You fought through Thanksgiving and Christmas and not only lived to tell the tale but no doubt look - AND feel profoundly better! Happy New Year!
