I get it, finally, after maybe 50 years of dieting....lifestyle change.....oooohhhhh......now I see what they mean by diet and exercise. Went to the mountains, ate like crazy for a couple of days and couldn't really track, but all healthy, all within my comfort zone. Portion control; tried a couple of things that gave me great pleasure and didn't feel guilty at all. No way to really track but I felt safe with my choices. Did some walking so I stayed relatively active. And then, most important, got home and did not lose it, did not binge because I had already destroyed myself.
So Monday morning, back to the day-to-day plan and schedule with a structure to follow. No harm done and lots of good times to remember!!

Managed ok! Stayed active.....grabbing opportunities to walk in between sessions. Never got up to get seconds at any buffet. Ordered well at restaurants....lighter stuff, making room for a few things that made dining out fun. Even got to the gym one night. Tracked everything. And when I went a little beyond my calories, I knew it was ok because I could get back to my routine when I got home.
So that's how you maintain within a changed lifestyle! Don't know about the next time, but this time I stayed on top!

I'm worried. Going on a 4 day conference trip. I won't have my toggle to be able to synch activity. I will keep tracking nutrition and try to track activity the old-fashioned way, but I am so dependent on my tracker that it makes me anxious. I won't have my go-to meals, although I will take some foods to provide healthy snacks.
I feel like I can't be one of those people who gives permission to be a little loose....which is what everyone says you do in maintaining weight in a new lifestyle. I am not going to weigh myself before because I know that, whatever happens, when I get back I am going to concentrate on getting back to being in control.
That's it.....what is scaring me is losing control. But there are things I can control.....I have to look for those. Gotta' focus. 4 days. That's not so long. I can do this.
