DETERMINATION is what it's all about. I got this definition from dictionary.com -
de·ter·mi·na·tion /dɪˌtɜrməˈneɪʃən/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[di-tur-muh-ney-shuhn]
–noun 1. the act of coming to a decision or of fixing or settling a purpose.
If you're determined - you can do this. And you CAN. You really, really can. Losing weight is a doable thing. It does help to have a good plan in place though, because as determined as we are, we DO need to set ourselves up for success. Getting rid of the junk and always having good healthy foods always on hand, which means lots of shopping, chopping and preparing.
I look forward to hearing lots more from you, so keep on posting.
