The 344 Pounds post has me researching stuff about maintaining weight loss. I've been going at it very hard (exercise) and will continue to do so probably until I lose 20 more (last?) pounds - I have to be stubborn because it has been a snail's pace for a few months. I guess I'm not in my 20's anymore, dang it. After that, I guess I'll see what happens when I return to a more moderate routine. I think I'll be alright for maintenance because if I know one thing, I know I am eating RIGHT and apparently that's the most common factor with gaining weight back - reverting back to a "normal" diet after some gimmicky or restrictive eating plan. That hasn't happened over here. Obviously. ;)

Thanks for the wonderful links. I read nearly every single one this week!
