It sounds like you're doing what you have to do to become successful. Over the long haul it is "food aware," not deprivation. Good luck :)

Have to be consistent with food log and exercise. Calculate calorie deficit each day

My suggestion is to focus on making changes you feel like you can live with long term. That's the best way to take the weight off and keep it off for good. It's great to work toward a goal (like the cruise), but also consider what's going to keep you motivated to continue after the cruise is over.

I have 59 days until my cruise embarkation. I started my first 30 day challenge yesterday - to exercise at least 10 minutes a day every day. I'll do a second fitness type challenge for the final 30 days before the cruise.

So, yesterday I ate a Hershey's Almond bar and forgot about it. I didn't log it in my log, so I wasn't counting it in my calorie count. I came in to work this morning and saw the wrapper still sitting so obvious in my trash can.

What did I do? I went back to yesterday's log and added the candy bar. I want to see an actual picture of what I'm eating and my good and bad habits. I want to know what works for me. I'm so tired of fad diets. I can lose weight on them, but I cannot live like that forever.

So, I logged my sweet tooth moment of weakness. And really, was it that weak? I've been doing so well. And I had a craving. I didn't overdo it. I didn't go out of my calorie range (even after adding it in this morning). I was honest.

I want to have support. But I also want to be accountable to me. If that makes sense. Can I or will I ever be thin? I don't know. But I certainly want to be more healthy.
