I have just recently started back,(yesterday to be precise) and nearly fell into old "traps". Obsession is my BIGGEST trap. I start a new project and I become obsessed to the point that I "miss the point". I am not talking mild obsession, I am talking living and breathing and missing out on the journey because of it obsession. Today I was tracking my food and recognized my obsession, I was becoming very anal about the precise counts and measurements. I did not know what they were ( I ate out with my dad at a little diner down the street.) so there was no way to be certain. I was searching the data base trying to pin down the "exact" clarifications of my meal when it hit me...I am obsessing! and for me obsession leads to obstacles that prevent me from succeeding.

I must learn to accept each day, do the best I can, track the foods I eat without obsessing about it and enjoy the journey.
