The importance of watching what I eat.

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.

Bah, I still have to be fairly vigilent about what goes into my mouth just to maintain my weight too. But like you say, I DO know how to lose it if I need to now, so putting on an extra few pounds here and there is much less of a big deal than it would have been a few years ago when I would panic and consider myself doomed to gain weight for all eternity until I had to be crane-lifted out of the house. I can just cut out the sweeties and the stodgies for a few weeks and I'm back down to where I started. Not fun, but simple!
