You are SO right...we do need to look at this as a healthy (lifelong) lifestyle...take it from someone who has spent a life so far of yo-yo dieting...lose and re-gain...lose and re-gain.
I too have been on SP before, and I re-joined at end of Dec '12, and hope to lose at least fifty pounds. I am here for you if I can help you in any way.
