I was talking to my mom the other day about how sometimes I just don't feel like I'll ever lose the weight when she said something that was, for me, very profound. She said when you strip away all of the emotions, feelings, etc, that so often bog us down and you simply look at the facts, of course you can lose weight! It's really as simple as finding the right balance of diet and exercise. The problem comes when you start attaching all sorts of baggage to yourself. That was such a tremendous help to me; ever since then, I've been treating this like some sort of game or experiment. It really keeps things from getting too serious and it makes it a lot more fun!
