Just hit goal today. Not entirely satisfied, going to loss 5-10 more and evaluate from there. Regardless I'm going to use MFP until I feel comfortable, but I'm never going to stop weighing myself, and if I see a trend up, I'm back on.

I will most likely stick around but after getting to my GW I will probably try and learn how to live a normal healthy lifestyle without MFP. So I might try to go a month without logging food or exercise into the diary to see how well I know my diet and body in general and practice for the rest of the life. But I got many great friends here for which I will be logging in daily to say hello :)

Completely agree with Allison :). I am maintaining already too and am always here when not working.

I have a long ways to go....but with the friends and support I have made here... You betcha I am staying... I do not want to chance gaining this weight back... I have changed our families lifestyle....

I came for the weightloss, I'll stay for my friends.

Absolutely! Accountability, friendship and support are key factors in success for the long term... I'm here for the long run.

happy Yes, I plan on sticking around. I want to lose the weight and get in shape but I always try to pay it forward when I have support in any journey in my life. I hung around when I sobered up with meetings and I still go to my site that helped me quit smoking. I will do the same with this site. It has given so much to me, I definitely want to give it back long after I get to my goal weight.

At some point I would like to eat meals without having to weigh and measure and estimate and hunt for things in the database, and log it.... and then actually eat and the food is cold.

I'll kick around and cheer on the noobs, and chat with my people. But if I do leave, I'm taking my friends with me!
August 4, 2012 8:39 PM

I plan to make my profile and diary public when I reach my goal weight. I'll also start friending people at that point. Maintenance is much harder than weight loss for me and I'll need the support.

I came for the weightloss, I'll stay for my friends.

:) Yes
August 4, 2012 8:44 PM
Yup. This is a lifestyle change for me not just a diet to lose weight.
August 4, 2012 8:47 PM

I figure it's going to take a while to sort out maintanence...that parts harder than the losing.

No way! I've been on maintenance for over a year now, and it's super easy. When I hit goal, I just gradually upped my calories instead of doing a giant leap, and it was not difficult at all to adjust. MFP is such an easy habit to keep so I'll probably be here until the Internet implodes...flowerforyou

Yea sure

as long as my boss stays away devil

but once he starts logging on, my time on here will seriously be dampened. noway

Seriously...yea, I'll probably be here for long time....especially after I reach my goal weight since I have never maintained. Well, and the fact that I have met some amazing people. flowerforyou
August 4, 2012 8:53 PM
I will stay for maintenance. I fear that if I don't continue to track things, I will go back to bad habits.
August 4, 2012 9:00 PM
Well nobody likes me so I'm going to eat a big chocolate cake in front of fat people on diets whenever I hit my goal weight...... I'll be sure to post pictures!!!
August 5, 2012 1:55 AM
I'll definitely be hanging around. I've made great friends here and I love this site!

Though I don't have many friends I do plan to stick around.
August 7, 2012 1:06 PM
I hit my GW in May and still here. Once you hit your GW, create more goals!
August 7, 2012 1:15 PM
I got ways to go so I'll be on here for a while. After I reach my goal weight I will reevaluate if I like what I see and decide from there
August 7, 2012 1:16 PM
i'll go from weight loss, to toning, to hitting on women now i have my new body....and you know the whole support thing, with great bod come great responsibilty all that jazz
August 7, 2012 1:16 PM
pry not.
August 7, 2012 1:19 PM
Im definitely a lifer....can't imagine getting all the love, support and encouragement I got and then not giving anything back.
August 7, 2012 1:20 PM
Like you I am about 5 away, and yes I plan to stick around so I don't slowly creep back up.
