As ChickieBoom said: "I confess that I am having a really hard time sticking to plan now that I'm so close. I thought that I would be super motivated to keep going but mostly I feel pretty ok with the way that I look so I'm not as vigilant as I was before." So true!
We've come this far, so let's quit thinking about the treats we are going to eat. As one post said: "This is America. There will always be donuts." Or panini and croissants in my case. I'm changing that thought into a commitment to being on the elliptical by 4pm today.
Let's motivate each other to see our dreams become reality. I know the goalposts may change as we near them, like a heat mirage. We will share many of the same mini-goals, challenges, non-scale successes, disappointments, and disillusions. We need each other for ideas, encouragement, future maintenance plans, and even what didn't work in our quest for the goal: living our life, not just thinking about diets.
