Watching the weight come back has been depressing for two different reasons.
First the obvious, I am not progressing towards my goal, but instead am getting further from it, and all that represents.
Second, since I am still exercising, just not watching what I eat, it make obvious the fact that if I want to maintain my weight loss I will never be able to eat without attention to what I am eating.
The good news is that as soon as I start watching what I eat again, the weight starts coming back off.
I realize that this is a lifelong change, but I think somewhere in me is still this little girl whining that it's not fair. That once I reach my goal weight I should be able to eat anything I want and look fabulous.
