    The word "diet" is derived from a Greek word meaning "way of life". How can an entire society take a perfectly good word and screw it up?

    It's funny. Even after nearly a year on maintenance, I still get comments from people who ask, "Are you still on your diet?" I usually tell them I'm on maintenance now and while that means I can be slightly more liberal from time to time, I can't ever go back to eating the way I used to or I'll regain all the weight. Usually by the time I get the first few words out, their eyes have glazed over and it becomes clear to me that they have no idea what I'm talking about.

I had always paid lip service to the idea that I was making lifestyle changes and not following a diet, but never fully internalized what that meant and entailed. Finally, after many, many failed attempts, I'm a successful maintainer! My bottom line: if you can find joy in your weight loss process, you'll have a joyful experience in maintenance as well.

  That is definitely the right attitude. Diet just sounds bad! A plan for a life style change sounds much better and much easier. emoticon

    Thank you for pointing it out again "DIETS DON'T WORK!!!" The only thing that does work is commitment to become the healthiest you can be and that calls for a "LIFETIME" committed to eat right, exercise (there's that nasty word again...LOL), getting proper sleep and taking care of yourself.

Thanks for the post, it was a real eye-opening reminder.
