I had seen this article once before, but had forgotten about it. It's a good reminder! I do have one of those "Eat This, Not That" books that I purchased about a year ago. I think I will sit down and take a look at it again since I have joined Spark People. It may mean a bit more to me this time around!
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Thanks for sharing, Don. The guy that wrote this book and one on cooking as well as for kids was on the Today show today. He does show some unbelievable comparisons when he is a guest. I have seen him several times with good information.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"When I say itís you I like, Iím talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.Ē Mr. Rogers
