I just finished the book tonight (started last weekend).

I don't think I realized it before but I probably believed myth # 1 most of my life.

"Myth #1: If youíve been overweight since childhood, itís next to impossible to lose weight and keep it off."

Since I've always been not only overweight but very large boned... large feet, hands, all of that, I've always been told that my size is "just the way I am".

I wonder if there is a part of me that really believes this even now. Will that part of me have trouble accepting a slimmer me? Will my family? (not my husband and children, but my siblings, mother etc...)

If I am totally honest with myself.. I think this is an area I have to work out. Can I even imagine a smaller me for life?
August DAILY goals Total points 3.5/24
30 min yoga or pilates or ball
30 min of rigorous cardio interval training
30 min of flex time: cardio or weight training or intensive functional exercise

I didn't lose weight. I burned up stored calories.
