8. What do you think will be different when you reach your goal weight? If you are in maintenance, what did you think would be different? What actually was different?
The main thing is that I think I will look and feel better in my clothes. And spend less time thinking about my body in a negative way. When I was closer to goal, I found myself being impressed with the progress, even though it wasn't ideal, I could see what I had done, and I felt good about that. Clearly this didn't happen this winter, but I do wonder if it will be easier to make healthy choices when I have a body that feels worth maintaining. That just reminded me that my friend Tanya always said that part of her success was appreciating the body she had at every step of the process! Maybe that is a renewed tool for today!
