I think it's the same psychological response... I myself don't want this to happen again...I hope that STAYING at the reasonable weight for a good amount of time, will teach me that THAT weight is now normal...and straying from THAT weight would be weird.
Anyhow, that was a little run-on, stream of consciousnessy (haha).
I can certainly relate to this...especially getting to a reasonable weight and then I stop rather than continuing to move to goal. I used to always say things like well I am healthier, slimmer than I was so this is good enough. operative word enough without ever giving myself a shot at being the best me...just the enough me. Enough of that!
