The “now what?” syndrome

It's starting to settle on me despite my best efforts to ward it off with garlic and a wooden stake. The dreaded "I've gotten to goal, now what?" feeling. That sort of jumbled set of thoughts on how to live the plan now that weight loss is no longer the primary goal.

I know it's natural and is something I'll have to work through in the weeks ahead. I don't kid myself that it'll be an easy process. But I know it's something unavoidable and to be explored and worked through. Hopefully I'll find that balance soon. In the meantime, I may be opining and whining in the weeks ahead, so I beg your indulgence in advance.

Of course, it hasn't helped that I still haven't made a decision about Maintenance. I know weight loss is no longer the primary goal...but maybe it is. Oh decisions, decisions. I hate making the wrong choice so I become paralyzed when asked to make up my mind. You should see me trying to decide what colour socks to wear in the mornings.

How frustrating eh? The way I view it is tha maintenance is just as impt as weight loss, so why don't you kick ass at maintenance now and then you can definetly continue with weight loss a little down the road.
