This has been a longer journey than I originally thought it would be, and so much for the better. I thought I would just join, have a place where my information would be easier to handle because of the wonderful free tools, do some exercising and modify my eating a little here and there. I've hit against some of the usual walls, i.e., negative talk, injuries, illnesses, too much on the plate at one time, but as I would review my journal I came to realize that my reasons for taking so long is not excuse-driven but I am really learning to really love myself and, while not always easy to get through, I am enjoying the process of learning about myself. I read the articles and the posts, some I have re-read several times and will probably go through again to learn more from it, to help ingrain the info in my mind. I did not come here to go on a diet, whether you like to see it this way or not whatever you eat on a continual basis is your diet, you've literally been on a diet your entire life. I came here to change my lifestyle, my way of thinking and doing things. I am living for today, I am looking forward to tomorrow, but I am planning FOR LIFE!
Take the time you need to suck the marrow out of each step...PLAN FOR LIFE!
