I needed to (& did) lose 165 pounds.

I urge you to not let the numbers scare you. Losing weight and lots of it IS a doable thing. For any one and every one, yourself included. You are capable of it. You do have the ability. We all do.

Again, don't let the numbers scare you. I broke it down into 10 pounds mini-goals. When one goal was met, I moved onto the next... I stuck with my plan like glue, like glue and before you know it those 10 pound increments kept disappearing.

How do you lose that amount of weight? You decide to. You decide to and than you must be WILLING to do what's necessary to make it happen.

That's why the days of dieting are over with. For me, it was deciding to overhaul my lifestyle, once and for all, no matter what and permanently. And since it was/is a permanent change, the amount of weight I needed to lose was inconsequential.

So, what's your mode of attack? What's your strategy for taking the weight off? How are you going to go about getting the job done?
