It's great to see you posting again! I miss your input around here. Wow! Moving across the country! That's quite a change! Good luck to you and dh. I hope the move goes smoothly and that you enjoy the new location in every way!
I love your approach to a sustainable lifestyle. I've been pushing for faster weight loss lately, just because I want to be DONE with this, and a quicker pace keeps me motivated. But, I've been thinking a lot about what to do when I reach my goal weight, and a similar approach to what you're doing seems to be what my mind is gravitating to. I'm very interested to see how your "experiment" works for you, and look forward to your reports!
Congrats on the renewed focus and motivation and your "ahha" moment! And, again, good luck with the move!
