I'm hoping to transition into sticking with healthy choices and knowing when I'm hungry vs when I'm really not.

I am a little like Julie that food is a big emotional crutch for me, so whenever I can and probably now always will, I will weigh. If I am out somewhere and it is impossible to weigh I would have to eyeball but that should only be a rare occasion.
It does help you stay honest and accurate, I know it is soooooooooooo easy to drift off track :(

I'll probably do a combination. I can't see ever being able to eat without holding myself accountable in some way.

I have thought a lot about this and I have decided I need to track my food for life. It is so easy for me to get into self-deception about portions and I am so emotionally connected to food. This may change over the years as good choices become more habitual but for right now, I am planning on tracking forever.

When I get close I'm going to join the maintenance team and figure out how I'm going to do it. I think I'll probably keep weighing and measuring food for at least a few months after I get to my goal and then i may try it sometimes without.

What my husband does (he's maintained an 80 lb weight loss for 15 years) is, he weighs himeself in the morning and if he's higher than a certain number, then he tracks his calories for a few days or until he's back in his acceptable weight range. I'm sure I'll be asking for his advice when I get there.

Don't know what my weighing and measuring future will hold.
When in doubt I will probably weigh and measure.
Don't want to go back to the way I was.

I do a combination of both right now and will probably continue.

Let's make it a healthy day!

Eyeballing and estimating gets out of whack for me....maybe a combination of both would work.

Right now, I know that I want to. I know that when I stop, that is when I regain 40 pounds. I stop at 40, but that is to many. I'm posting a blog this morning that shows me at 300 pounds ... I'm blessed that I don't do that any more. BUT ... I need to take care of me and some form or fashion of weighing food and counting calories for life needs to be a part of the plan.

emoticon Do you think you will count calories/weigh food for the rest of your life or will you transition into eyeballing and estimating?
