Thanks. Since I posted that message I have lost about 3 more lbs. I did increase my water intake and stopped stressing about not losing as fast. I determine that 1/2-1lb a week is acceptable. Am enjoying this change.

Slow and steady definitely wins the race......and keeps you at the finish line. It takes time to form new habits, particularly the healthy ones. You're totally right that this is a lifelong thing. I see you've lost 10 of the 50 you want to lose. That's AWESOME!!!! Celebrate the success. Sometimes, getting started is the hardest part and you've already done that.

Yes, once you can live healthy most the time, instead of thinking you'll be able to eat anything and not exercise "once you lose the weight", you've found the key! Our bodies need good nutrition to feel energetic and they need to move to keep tuned up.
Focus on living your life as a healthy person, no matter what your weight is now, and aim to keep it that way. There will probably be bumps in the road- special occasions where you may overeat, but just try to bring yourself back to your healthy lifestyle each time it happens. Perfection is unrealistic, so don't get discouraged if you aren't perfect all the time.
Good luck! emoticon

I re-joined sparkpeople in Dec 2012 with the goal of losing 50 lbs. I have been tracking my food daily and doing at least 20-30mins of jogging 4-5 times a week. So far I lost about 7lbs, its going slow and can become discouraging, but I think I will stick with it. I might have to reevaluate my goals, maybe if I have the goal of losing 1/2 lb weekly instead of 1lb weekly I will be able to see result and remain motivated.
I think I need to look at this as a new way of living and not some short-term thing.
