Does anybody else deal with this?
Yep! I think we all deal with that. Over and over and over again. The trick is to keep doing it, as a fact of life.

As for how many calories to eat, we should make a sticky on that one (Meg, can we make a sticky?). The calorie calculators are notoriously inaccurate for so many people. If you've been maintaining for a while, you actually probably already have a good handle on it. If 10x your weight in pounds works for you, keep doing it.

Long enough have you dream'd contemptible dreams,
Now I wash the gum from your eyes,
You must habit yourself to the dazzle of the light and of every moment of your life.
