I'm trying really hard this time to remind myself of that this time. Hopefully this will break the cycle of losing the same 20-30 lbs over and over again, trying to get to that goal weight, trying to be happy and being disappointed when it doesn't happen!

Anyone else experienced THAT aspect of the goal weight?
Nope, at my goal weight I'm still planning on being so happy that people just want to reach over and slap me.
