    @NewLIFEstyle4ME Hard does NOT equal impossible. This is something we all need to remember. Thank you for posting.

    It's so ABSOTUTELY (yes I spelled it that way on purpose :) ) true. Another one I'm hiding in my heart and know is true as well is being strong/being STRONG in mind, body and soul/spirit (having a strength vs. weakness mind-set), being STRONG is not an option to/for me, it's a DAILY CHOICE, a mandate/a way of thinking/living/being...AND being weak is not an option for me either, it too is a way of thinking/living/being--it's a DAILY choice! It's like the old saying goes:
    "if you believe you can or if you believe you can't...YOU'RE RIGHT"!
    How absolutely, positively WONDERFUL water is to drink. I love drinking water so much now. When I was obese, for some reason I HATED drinking water, with a passion. I just didn't like it or want it. Once I started getting down to size I started drinking lot more water. Then I started substituting caloried drinks for water (ice water especially--but even room temp). Now, I CRAVE water and again, especially ice water and it tastes so GOOD to me now--I LOVE drinking water so much. I'm NOT saying that helped me get down to size necessarily, but maybe it did--not sure--but drinking water to me now is just as good if not BETTER than caloried drinks.

    This!!!! 🤩🤩🤩🤩🙌🙌🙌🙌 I hated drinking water when I was obese too! I would drink two 2 liters of soda and pour half a cup of sugar along with coffee creamer in my coffee. Now, I can’t get enough of water. My goal is to drink at least five 16 oz bottles of water a day, along with black coffee. I prefer my coffee black now. Coffee creamer & other sweet drinks like soda make me sick now! 😂😂😂 But like you said, @NewLIFEstyle4ME I *crave* water now. It makes me feel sooo wonderful!!! 🥰🥰🥰🥰 I prefer it over any other kind of drink!

    Girllll...I so know and 100% agree with you! I had some ice water (2 maybe 3 glasses) with my dinner last night and it was just sooooo delicious and refreshing. Who'd thunk I'd EVAH feel that way about water?!? I also drink lots of water all thru the day, because it's oh so GOOD to me!

    That as your diet changes, so do your tastes. I can't drink soda anymore, its too sweet. I also can't choke down pop-tarts or eat meat without going "WTF?" with my tastebuds.

    I can feel the lack of nutrition in overcooked foods at restaurants. Like, I eat primarily vegetables and they always over-cook them. My body is like "wait, why *doesn't* this taste better?"

    Ok so those are both basically the same thing.

    I am the same, I have cut out processed sugar/foods and my daughters bought me a snickers bar, because that's what I used to love to eat when we went shopping. After eating it, it left a bad after taste in my mouth...ugh!
