HAND CLAP! I'm still trying to figure out "weight-loss journey"

I do have a plan for active weight loss when I am pursuing active weight loss, and a plan for maintenance when I am maintaining, and I think in terms of "on-plan choices" and "off-plan choices". Part of my plan includes counting calories.
So, that's the terminology I've developed myself over the years I've been working on this.
It might be a "trip" but it ain't no "journey" with an end. For me its a "PROGRAM" to get back to health and stay there. I do not intend to spend my LIFE so intensely focused on eating, weighing, measuring whatever. I'll go crazy! Got to fix
my programing/conditioning fits for me! I'm glad there might be others that don't feel comfortable with that language.
