I have lost 110 pounds. I will have completed 5 years of maintenance in October. Exercise, planning, and healthy eating have become a way of life for over 5 years. I can do this. I can keep this weight off!

It is time to say I am going to make it this time and keep up my health. I am not returning to sugar, emotional eating, and refined carbs. Bingeing is no longer part of my life.

I am Done Being the Fat Girl. I am happy to be at goal weight and staying within my range.
I love Spark People and love all of the support!

Identify the strengths you used then, and apply those strengths to your weight loss journey. This is a good exercise to try in the beginning of your journey. Write down those successes in a blog post or a journal. When you start doubting yourself, return to them for motivation.

3. Reframe your thinking. Tell yourself that setbacks are temporary, not permanent. Focus on what is still working, rather than the area where you lapsed. Remind your
