LCing it, and my weight goals

Man, I feel really good. Love this Way Of Eating.
So now that I am getting the newness of this under my belt and I am settling in to what works for me, I have noticed a few things.
Now that I now longer have to deal with hunger, either at the cellular level or in my stomach, I don't eat when I am not hungry. So no "emotional" eating. For me, looking, back, I suspect that very little of my eating was emotional. I am thinking that the starvation at the cellular level was creating the uncontrollable urge to put something in my mouth. It was also leaving me with low levels of energy, which kept me from wanting to move.
I feel better, get more done, only eat when I am hungry, stop when I am satisfied, and am eating some amazingly good tasting stuff. Life is great!
So onto my weight goals...
I am setting up a series of very small, very reasonable goals, with no time span, I get there when I get there.
-my first weight goal was to re-lose the weight I had gained form being on prednisone, 270. GOAL ACCOMPLISHED, while on vacation no less, this week!!!
-my second goal is to lose my 10%, which would be 29 pounds, which is basically to break below 260.
-my 3rd goal is to get below my weight at delivery of my children (I weighed exactly the same at the last appointment before delivery for both of them), which is 252.
-my 4th goal is to get back below my most recent "low weight" of 235. This is the point where people really start to notice the loss.
-My 5th, and the real biggie, is to get below 200.
-my sixth weight goal is to get to the weight I was when I started my first pregnancy, 182
-my 7th weight goal is the final push I would like to get to 162 which is what I weighed when I met my dh,
-my weight maintenance goal is to hover between 160 and 165.
I would really like to go to my son's Senior Youth Day at church at my goal weight. That is the first Sunday in May 2013. Plenty of time.
