    I totally agree with you!
Today I had similar thoughts. The last weeks I couldn't focus on weight loss and keeping up with my exercise was the hardest thing to do. Since one or two weeks I am loosing weight again and now I start pressuring myself to keep losing! This is so insane!!! I realized today that I have to quit thinking about my weight, to built up all my doings around it. I should know better because this is not the way it works for me! I need to focus on healthy nutrition and on my well being, my exercise programs because this is the only way I will get it done in a healthy and lifestyle-changing long lasting way.

    The only thing I'd add to your list of basics is sleep.
