Oh, I totally get it. Someone was talking about this the other day.

I think we can all be so goal-driven we can miss the forest from the trees. Listen to me. "We all." I mean me, lol -- can't speak for y'all.

When it's purely about the numbers or the results, I wind up trying so hard I burn out. Same thing happened after mom died, I put on weight, and I made myself crazy trying to force my workouts and eating, on top of an already emotionally-charged circumstance.

Giving yourself the freedom to go after your goal -- or even the freedom to stop a take a breath for a bit -- is so key.

Way to go!!!

Best,
Russ Lane

Limits? Pah.

Good insights! I'm on my second trip down to goal myself, so I can appreciate your accomplishment even more!

Blessings, Michelle

It may only be the upper cusp of my maintenance level..but I`ve reached it!! emoticon

After reaching (and miserably failing last summer) my target goal, I have come to learn what works best for my mind and my body. No more 'trying' to eat perfectly, 100% of the time. No more 'worrying' about that ultra low scale weight, and sticking to it like glue.

The key to my success, this time, is that I have way more muscle than last time (thanks to P90X), so I`m able to not only weigh more on the scale..but to eat more!Yet be the same clothing/measurement size, as I had been, 10 pounds less! emoticon

I still expect to lose another 5 pounds, as I have recently discovered, and become quite addicted, to Taebo and Billy Blanks! Luv that man! emoticon

But 125 lbs is my bottom limit, so whatever my body wishes to do between these 5 pounds is totally fine with me...I`m here to stay! emoticon
