It's so true. We just have to do it, but there is so much in that "just." I said before that I realized that when I lost weight before, I hadn't really learned how to deal with urges because for periods of time, the urges went away, or if they came, I could somehow nip them in the bud before they were an issue. This winter, I joined a weight loss group at work and discovered that being in the group was not the reason I lost last time. I was just ready! I am the same weight I was 8 weeks ago, and am no smaller, either. But, I have been able to keep to the plan on some afternoons and evenings, which is the real danger time for me. I know one thing I have to do is to keep remembering how good it feels to be hungry for dinner and to be just comfortably satisfied after dinner, as well as recognizing what emotion I may be surpressing and what might better solve the problem. It may be taking action or it may be just diverting. Good luck to us all!
