Sometimes you have to remind yourself why you are doing this. Here is one of my observations so far. One of the main motivators for taking the first steps yet again was that I felt awful. My knees hurt and I was in a bad space emotionally because of it. Well somewhere along the line, as I started to feel better, I did what I always do -- get a little too happy with myself. And the slacking started. I was good all day, exercised twice and then I got home and BAM! What was supposed to be a measured eating experience turned out to be diet suicide. What I learned was that I have to keep reminding myself why, in great detail, I have adopted a new lifestyle. Today, I wrote out a list of why I wanted to do this, the things I am done with and exactly what it will take to get where I want to go. I knew there would be times when this would get hard. Well, it's official -- I'm there.
