Kathy had an interesting post yesterday about maintenance and those bloggers that are practicing maintenance. My post yesterday included something I am now looking forward to.
What got me thinking is the need for me to look forward to something. I am now looking forward to my wife's birthday (1/25), then my birthday (2/3), then as Kathy reminded me, the start of racing, and the start of Baseball season, etc. Throughout my weight loss journey, I have had certain points to look forward to, 10%, every 5 pounds, 25, 50 then 75 lbs., and now my goal weight. After I reach my goal, what will I have to look forward to in my weight loss journey. I am afraid that I will get lazy and decide that I'm not enjoying the maintenance journey and will fall into bad habits again.
I am struggling with the need to look forward to something and will keep thinking about what my next stop along the journey will be.
