We have assorted goals and approach them from different life circumstances, with varied hopes and expectations. But everyone who truly takes advantage of this site is a winner. Yes, it can "hurt" to make these changes, in that changing these ingrained old 'bad' habits takes lots of mind-exploration and then replacements of this for that. Every positive change we make through this site is worthy of celebration.... no matter how trivial the change may seem to some impartial second party.
On the other side of all the effort, we can stand back knowing that all the work was paid off Big Time. All the frustration is in the past. The starts, stops and re-starts all led to the Happy Ending.
Whatever your healthy lifestyle mini-goal, it is worth it!
