    I had to stop drinking SODA!

    Omigawd, soda is THE DEVIL. One can of Mountain Dew = 300 calories. You could have a WHOLE MEAL for that caloric intake! Empty calories will get you every time.

    Sadly this, since I've been drinking Pepsi as far back as I can remember lol, and cut out all the snack foods. If I don't by the chips and such, I can't be tempted to eat them.

    I am just starting my weight loss journey and this is so encouraging and true.
    I have to stop making excuses and procrastinating
    I am learning to keep all my trigger foods out of the house.

    I had to stop trying to be perfect and stop thinking I could be perfect. But its OK to have an off day, just get back on the horse the day after and carry on.

    I go in spurts of weight loss, with a few backward slides here and there. The hardest thing is DAY !, making it through the first committed day of being serious about my health. After I make it through the first day, I find it easier as I have tucked one successful day away. The more of those successful days following behind me, the easier it is to turn down temptation, or if I do slide back, to continue on the next day as if it never happened. One day at a time. (And not bringing any salty chips into my house.....)

    What fantastic results and what a great attitude. I especially like your rule that there isn't an 'end' goal. This is life, how you now live it. I am going to focus on that.

    I've lost 80 pounds and I know you have to make peace with your inner demon and love yourself.

    I just love your post! I can relate to every one of your points and am really working on the mental game as much as anything.

    The one thing I had to stop doing is thinking this is about weight loss and start thinking this is about my health. When just focusing on the number on the scale, I'd get discouraged when the number went up, and then feel like a failure. Instead, I have to remind myself that even if the number on the scale goes up, I'm eating healthier and moving my body more. Now I still get discouraged when the scale tells me one thing, but I remember that no matter what, my body has been fueled by food it needs rather than junk and my muscles, which weigh more than the fat they're replacing, allow me to do more with my kids.
