Yogi Berra said, "Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical."

I think that is so true of weight loss.

The physical is obvious -- you've got to create that calorie deficit. But I think that's just part of it. You've got to BELIEVE you can do it. You've got to KNOW you have what it takes to make this commitment and follow through on it.

I won't bore you with the details of my weight history. Suffice it to say, I've spent far too many years believing I could not get to the weight I'm at now. Big bones, I told myself. Broad shoulders. Big quads and glutes. Three kids. Too big a girl to get that low.

BULL!

I made a mental shift, and I achieved my goal faster than I imagined possible. But first I had to BELIEVE and then I had to COMMIT. But all those years I told myself negative things, that I couldn't lose the weight, that I couldn't maintain the loss... it's all a self-fulfilling prophecy. I didn't believe in myself, and I made those bad things come true.

You can do it! Believe in yourself!

THEREX..thank you for the encouragment and support

thesame7lbs ....thank you for the support and wise thoughts, the day has been frustrating but I have stayed on track with the food journal and my caloric intake.. just angry about it.

I believe in mind over matter and when I get like this I press through and know the new day brings new
