"Losing" to "Maintenance"

In a success story (Lori Mueller's, on RealAge), I read, "I just wanted to get the weight loss done so I could get to the maintenance part".

Wow... I've been "losing" (or trying to) for so long, that it didn't really occur to me that there would ever be a "maintenance" part. Lori's attitude changes the perspective...with perseverance, yes it WILL happen, not MIGHT happen. It definitely worked for her!

A-ha!

One week down, and I'm 4 lbs lighter. I know it's mostly water weight, but this is the same 4 lbs of water weight that I'd been trying to lose for years!

The real a-ha moment is that it is so SIMPLE. I always thought there must be a trick. I would do anything to avoid counting calories, which I saw as the ultimate joy-killer. It turns out that simply recording what I eat (and staying in my range) is WAY easier than any gimmick ever could be. Not joy-killing, but joyFUL to see my progress!!!
