That's from Stranger than fiction, one of my movies of awesome.
here's something I was posting on a group:
I used to be able to hold my weight through exercise but as I got older, well, Let's just say I couldn't keep eating all I wanted. I was overweight but not obese and figured that's just how I was made, that it was my fat thermostat or set point. But then the weight started creeping up.
Once I started sparking, though, I wondered why I let myself hover at 25 lbs over for most of my adult life. A lot of it was not realizing what a healthy weight should be. I thought I should weigh what I weighed at age 15, or less...
And I guess that's why it's so important that goals are realistic and not some emotional notion from our youth. There's a place for that fire, but it can put a goal too far out of reach.
