This is HUGE. It means that a healthy lifestyle is coming natural to you and you are incorporating it without much effort. I am very happy for you and looking forward to getting to that point myself.

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 will continue to get easier...if I don't give up. Thank YOU!

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!

Many thanks for your answer,

Seems I need to put a plan and commit with it because I lost and gained so much in my life that my body feels & looks terrible, lazy and very tired of that struggle.

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.

How long did it take you to achieve this goal & what was the most vocal point, because seems I have the very same weight you had at the beginning and I am wishing to reach your goal.

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.
