Great article! Thanks for sharing! I know I'm ready for this time to be the last time I lose significant weight. That article just confirms it!

I have to stop getting on the scale.. if there is a gain, I freak out and eat. I mean why not, if I am eating right and exercising and still "gain" then why am I doing this.

I have also made visuals for my kitchen as reminders. I think that every time I go in there to eat when I want something not planned, I will tape a new motivator up on the fridge. I am hoping this helps get me past the craving stage.

i give up easily. i don't completly give up but i give in to temptation too many times or decide to not exercise with as much intensity too often. That i think has to be a focus is to keep working at my goals and try to prevent the errors in judgement.

Don't forget to be awesome.

I enjoyed the article. One thing that stuck in my mind while reading it though was when she says "back to your usual self". I reckon she was assuming I'd EVER not had issues with my weight.

Right now, I think of my "usual self" as a couch potato eating lots of the wrong things, in large quantities. My new self is making healthy food choices, and actually exercising (can't say I enjoy the exercise yet, but I do really like how it makes me feel). I've got a ways to go before I start to think of this as my "usual self".
