For me, the VERY beginning is hard (and I'm starting again after slipping on maintenance!) My "new" starting weight isn't really so daunting, but I've still got this overwhelming feeling of "Get it off! Get it off!" like this 10 pounds is some kind of creepy alien insect that's suddenly latched on to me. I want it gone NOW! I am aware of it constantly.

But when I lost weight before (and it was quite a bit more) I became very motivated once I saw the scale start to dip, even a little bit. I focused more on the delicious, healthy foods I could prepare and eat and soon I didn't want the other stuff (I've never been much of a junk food eater). So I know I need to hunker down this first week, drink lots of water and choose my food wisely, and I will soon have RESULTS to focus on, rather than this extra weight that came from outer space

Once I get back to a maintenance weight, let's hope I stick with it this time. My weaknesses: wine and pasta!

Good luck!!
