Most of us have tried to lose weight before; some of us have been trying for years. But we're here at 3FC because we know that this time, we're on the right track. I thought it would be nice to share why this time is different, and why we know that this time we're going to be sucessful.

I'll start:

This time is different because I'm just as focused on changing my mental habits as I am my physical ones.

This time is different because I'm receiving more support than criticism for once and I have finally internalized the desire to be healthy and realized that I actually have to work to do so (I had always hoped that if I just thought about it, it would happen, such an optimist ).

This time is different because my life depends on it, and I am finally willing to admit that.
This time is different because I realize it is a battle against not merely food but a battle for control through discipline, planning, and commitment.

This time is different because I'm doing it the right way, slow and healthy. It's also different because I've realized the health risks I have.

This time is different because I'm doing this for me! Not because someone else wants me to do it and not to be thin for a special event. I deserve to be healthy and happy and I'm going to have it.

This time is different because I'm ready to stay with these habits for the rest of my life . . . no "vacations" from a healthy lifestyle are possible!

This is such a great thread. All of the reasons already stated are definitely my reasons why this time it's different for me as well.

I will have to of course put my 2 cents in .

This time it was/is different for me because I finally realized that I did indeed have control over my health/weight and that if I didn't want to be fat and miserable - well I just didn't have to be. AND I finally, finally accepted that I simply could not have it both ways - I couldn't have the high calorie/high quantity food in my life and be that happy, healthy, fit, energetic, productive person I so badly wanted to be.

All my other attempts at losing weight focused on losing as much weight in as short amount of time as humanly possible, and had no regard for my health or sustainable approaches. It had to happen NOW or it wasn't worth doing, and my only reason was to look better.

This time is different because I'm focusing more on my health; on feeling better and keeping myself as healthy and happy as possible. I've taken a path that's slow but sustainable, and the scale is not my only measure of success.

It's motivated by self-love, and not self-hate.

This time is different, because I no longer NEED the foods that made me fat.
