Yeah, I can't do this. If I'm not careful, I can undo all my hard worked 80% in those 20% moments. Rather, I do my best to be 100%, understanding that a few slips here and there will not be catastrophic. But I do my best to pay attention to what I'm eating and how much and aim for my range 100% of the time.
This is what is sustainable for me and my weight loss. Sure, I could lose faster, but I may have given up at a weight that I was "comfortable with" (still 20 lbs overweight) rather than a healthy weight.
It's probably mentally more healthy too in the long run. 100% being "good" is a little obsessive and probably just leads to a big crash. I was trying to do kind of a 90/10 rule, but it ends up being more like 80/20.
