Josie Ann's Journal, 26 January 2013

The weight loss has been slow, but steady. I'm actually okay with the pace because I want the last 7 to 8 lbs to be like a precursor to how I will have to eat during maintenance. I will continue to log my food even when I reach my target as it will be an effective tool to help ensure my weight doesn't creep back on.

It's nice to lose weight without any pressure. When you have an event that is tied up with your goal weight (like I did last time) that can be stressful. Of course you can use that to keep you highly focused, but once that key focus is gone your maintenance phase is a bit harder to get a firm handle on. That was my experience. So, this time I have no external pressure, but just my own desire to be back at my happy weight for me. Plus this time around I allow myself to incorporate treats without feeling like I've failed on the day. As long as I've been good for most of the week, why not. You have to learn to be able to still eat all the foods you love without gaining weight. Life is short and should be enjoyed...in moderation!
