    What a great post! I have tried so hard to remember that what I eat is a choice, I'm not addicted! Thank you so much for sharing!

    This is the beat post I have ever read. Thank you for your honesty and opening up that way. It makes so much sense and is so simple. It is all about choices. I have been at both ends (anorexic and overweight/out of control). The choices I made and make every day, that will determine if I lose, gain or stay the same. One choice at a time seems less daunting.

    It is simple, but I don't want to come off as an expert. The post just reflects how my thinking is evolving. And believe me, it took years, YEARS, to get to this point. Therapy, at least for me, was vital. And I am always so slow to change. For years, every time I would slip into a major depression, my husband would tell me over and over--you have choices. You have options. You have decisions. It took me so long to internalize that concept and I'm still working on it every day.

    Thank you for the wonderful advice. I've yo-yo'd the same 25 pounds up and down for years. Its easy for me to blame my T1D and insulin for my continued struggles. But that is also a copout and you are 100% right. At the end of the day its ultimately my choices that determine my path. Thank you for the reminder. MFP gives me the accountability I need to keep moving along. It's math. Eat X, and keep moving so that at the end of the day the food calories in, minus the exercise calories out equals Y. This turtle may be slow, but she's steady and plans to win this race once and for all.

    That is one of the best posts I have ever read. So much common sense that seems not to be so common these days.

    I agree wholeheartedly! I just shared it with my cousin, sister, and my contest team at the gym!

    Thank you so much for whole heartedly sharing your journey. It's all about choices to move and what we eat and that ultimately is a choice to be happy.

    Change your behavior and the rest will follow. ...

    Today, you can make a great choice. You can choose to show up. And tomorrow, you can decide to show up again. And again. Pretty soon you’ll have a whole string of days where you decided to show up. To pay attention. To make choices. And good things will happen.

    So show up. And keep showing up.

    Thank you so much for your post. I struggle with staying on track - but when you break it down to the perspective of just showing up ... making your choice ... it takes away all those nasty distractions and makes the path so much more clear.
