I've learned that losing weight won't fix every other aspect of my life . . . but it just might make things a little easier all around.

That successful weigh loss is more than willpower alone. It takes planning, committment and mental realigning.

There's a difference between thinking about a goal and committng to a goal. Until I started writing things down, they were more like wishful thinking.

That it is easier than I thought it was because I have a better more positive attitude about it this time.

I have to be accountable for everything... including things that don't have anything to do with food.

Exercise is not something that is a nice thing to do when I feel like it. It is a mandatory thing to do even when I don't feel like it. Like brushing my teeth and taking a shower. It has to be a part of my daily routine.

That it's ok to be selfish and put me and my health and happiness first.

As my Dh says, "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!"

I've learned to have a love affair with my veggies. I've learned that I have muscles under there, I just need to uncover them. I've learned that in the excercising game, 'fake it 'til you make it' actually works because when I started I hated it and now I am getting to where I like it and it is becoming a slight addiction.
