Congrats! I'm starting to feel that way myself finally! I am gearing up for darker fall and winter days to see if my habits are ingrained enough to beat the winter blues and lazies. For me, That could be a bigger challenge than creating the exercise habit. :\ But I'm ready! And your blog helped as a reminder to keep at it...it will continue to get easier...if I don't give up. Thank YOU!
Focusing on myself so I can focus on others.

I know how you feel. I have switched to healthy foods on many levels and I too am losing weight s l o w l y, but for the first time it does not feel like a chore as you put it and I am not stressed about it as well....It's all good! congrats to you and to me.....YEAH
Today may there be Peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of Faith in Yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received & pass on the Love that has been given to you.
That's brilliant - something for all of us to strive for...

Great job! You have done the hardest thing and most important thing: turning your healthy eating and exercise habits into your normal lifestyle. More people should do that and we would have less health problems.
My husband has heart disease in his family. We have had to make initially tough choices on eating habits and exercise and have also been living that way for almost 20 years. We have raised our two teenage daughters that way also. Healthy choices are a way of life for us. Yeah sometimes I miss meat (we are vegetarian/vegan because of his genetic chloresterol issues) but I don't miss the muffin top and feeling sluggish.
Keep up the good work!

Sounds like you have made a real life change so congratulations! And for MIRAMIRA3, don't rush your goal. Plan to lose just 1 - 2 lbs a week. So figure your weight loss goal and then back into how long you want to plan to lose it. Go for it!!!
Be a good steward of your health, money and the earth. Do more with less and leave people better off than when you met them.
I love this and how you realise you have new thinking!

So I've been feeling like I haven't put as much effort into my weight loss goals lately, however the pounds have been coming off pretty successfully anyways.
At first I was worried that the loss would slow down since I didn't feel like I was trying hard enough. Then, after reviewing my food/exercise logs I realize that it's not that I'm doing worse in my calories in/calories out equation... it's just that since eating right and exercise is now NO LONGER FEELING LIKE A CHORE, it feels easier.
So, I guess it's time to up my workout intensity, but I really like this feeling that now eating right and working out just feels like something that's NORMAL and not a trial. I never thought that day would come.
