Oh, right - this is permanent

I read a great blog this morning about this being a marathon rather than a sprint. We've all read this over and over since starting SP, but I really needed it this morning. I really thought I hadn't gained any weight during my weekend away but upon weighing myself, I discovered that that wasn't true. In this blog was a line about starting with the end in mind. Could I commit to never having a fun weekend away in which I might take a small step backward? No - I really can't say I'm willing never to do that again. So I have to be willing to do this in that slow-but-steady way that allows for a weekend away with a girlfriend that included making some really good choices but also included some sensational meals out. This is a lifestyle, and for me that lifestyle has to include some indulgences. I have to remember that this is for the rest of my life, so it has to be something I can live with for the rest of my life.
