You know, Jen, I think if you're able to do this without having a goal weight in mind to aim at, and without jumping on the scale at every opportunity, that's probably a pretty healthy attitude to have. You're right about it being a lifestyle change and not just some crazy diet that will come to an end when we hit that magic number.

I know I can't do this because I get complacent. Take the way I've been over the last few months: I feel (and look) tons better than I did at 247 pounds, and I've found myself falling into the trap of easing up. I didn't go back to my old way of eating, but I was definitely much less vigilant about what I was putting in my mouth. It was the slippery slope. I needed to remind myself that I'm still obese, and 50 pounds away from a "normal" BMI.
