It is hard. This is a life long struggle for me and I am sure many of us. I know there are many things in life that I have absolutely NO CONTROL of. My Weight Loss is something I have 100% control over. It is hard but it is my thing and I need to get my head screwed on straight to work towards and meet my goals. Goal setting has been important when I have been successful. When I don't set goals or get "comfortable" I don't have the same success.
