It's the way I'm supposed to live my life

My weight loss seems to be speeding up a little, even though I'm not always getting to all my classes, and my diet certainly isn't perfect. I'm very okay with that. It makes things liveable and this new lifestyle very acheiveable.
I'm waiting for my plateau, pretty sure it's coming soon - probably around 60kg. That will be frustrating.
I had a bit of a thought the other day about how I will need to maintain this level of committment for the rest of my life if I want to maintain this weight. It seems like a daunting task, and one where I become the person that says, "I have a real weight problem. If I don't exercise all the time, and watch what I eat, I put on weight."
Then the epiphany (in the form of the biggest loser - how sad). The trainers that put on +5kg in a week from eating badly and not exercising. Are they not in the same boat? By evidence, couldn't they say too, "I have a real weight problem. If I don't exercise all the time, and watch what I eat, I put on weight."
Watching what I eat and exercising all the time - that's a part of my life now. And that's okay, it's hardly challenging, it's the way I'm supposed to live my life.
