Like most things, being healthy takes educating yourself and family and arming yourself with the tools to be successful. Spark is a great place to start!

I have had the "weight loss" mindset for my whole adult life, until about 4 years ago, when I started gradually shifting to a more "health" mindset. This put weight loss more in balance with other goals to achieve health. I think the switch in how I regard weight (as merely one part of health) my approach became more balanced and my stress around weight a lot less.

@IMATIKIGIRL That reminds me of how I started. It is a learning experience. When joining SparkPeople I would spend about 3 hrs a day reading and planning. Reading the first book of Spark gave me a lot of incentive to move forward.

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

I agree. You also have to try different strategies, an eating and exercise program that worked for you two years ago, may not work for you now.

I read an article that said to think of your weight loss journey like taking a semester course at college. You have to prepare, put aside time, study and write, and do homework. To learn, it takes time.

I really like that!
