Thanks for your message. Weight loss is made up of many parts:-

1. Losing the numbers

Yep, it's all about the scale moving downwards.

2. Focusing on goals other than the number on the scale

Nobody sees the number on the scale, but they do see YOU and the changes in your shape that the tape measure shows you. They see when you develop muscle under the skin because you're working your body fat percentage down. Don't be a slave to the scale at the expense of other successes. Revel in each positive day that you improve yourself.

3. Being in the right mental and emotional space to keep going

That's the thing that so few people tell you when you start dieting with almost 100 lbs to lose ahead of you. Let me share something - once you get into a pattern of eating the right food, you start feeling better in yourself as well as losing weight. That leads to you WANTING to move more as your body doesn't hurt, your feet don't groan and you stop believing that those hunger pangs NEED to be satisfied. Hunger becomes just another sensation. It isn't instant, it will take time, but it will happen.

4. Successful long term weight loss isn't about perfection

Heck, if you knew how many times I've strayed from the "path of diet perfection" you'd laugh yourself silly. Success is accepting that you can't diet 365 days a year. Life happens. Family events happen. Social gatherings happen. Accept it when it's genuinely a reason where good food choices weren't available and own up to it when it's an excuse.

Success is a long string of days that you get it right. When you look back from your goals will you see all the days you weren't perfect? No, you'll wink at yourself in the mirror and say "Damn, I look good in these jeans" and you'll go out and live your life.

You can do this. Stay strong, be ready to accept the challenge. You ARE worth it, and so is your family. :)

Thanks for the message! I'm glad you're back. I missed you! If you read my blog from January, you'll get updated about things in my life for the past year. 2014 wasn't so great. Luckily, I haven't gained the weight back, but I haven't lost any additional pounds either! I have been working back at it though. We're going to a destination wedding in June, so I'm wanting to lose some more before then...and of course summer is coming (for those of us who are still in the cold-not like my lucky California friend !). Take care of yourself and remember a step at a time and we'll make it!
