Wow. How weird! I was just having a similar thought this morning.
I've been really, really hard on myself lately because while transitioning to maintenance I have been falling for some terrible binging and have been struggling to get it under control. I've gained weight as a result over the last 2 months. Yes... I've been feeling like a fat slob, I'm ashamed to admit. Like my inner fat girl is trying to resurface and gain back control.
But just before I read your post I was thinking there are people right now who would kill to be where I'm at right now. I would have killed to be where I'm at right now last summer!
I probably need to stop being so hard on myself and reflect on how far I've come. Be proud of my accomplishments rather than focusing on every little trip and mistake I make. I know I will never give up my new lifestyle because I love it and with time and determination I will conquer maintenance just like I conquered my weight.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
