I'm so glad that you're forming new healthy habits.
I like your second sentence the most:
"The last time I was always wanting to loose this time I am on a mission on eating right and getting into this routine of it. The weight will come off."
I had the same pattern as you. Always wanting to loose the weight and FAST, instead of learning new healthy habits. The scale had too much control.
We need to remember what were the "bad" habits that caused us to gain the weight in the first place, so we can make the correct changes and work on healthy habits that will help us stay at goal.
The best time to work on new healthy habits is while loosing the weight. That way, we we reach maintenance, we're more likely to keep the weight off, as long as we continue working on those habits and monitoring our healthy behaviors.
Not always easy, but can be done.
Being almost 7 years at maintenance, the first 3 years went by like a charm. I had tons of discipline.
The 4th year was the hardest. It was difficult to maintain. I've learnt from that 4th year a lot.
I applied the experience and it is easier now, but I still need to be on my guard 24/7.
