Wow, how inspiring! I'm a dietitian, and currently working in foodservice more than clinical and education because I just don't feel like I'm setting a very good example. Just started today, and feeling very motivated!

thanks for sharing .........you are an inspiration to us all............and reading your story will keep us motivated to carry on this journey.............lita


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

Definately had felt similarly as a psychotherapist. I always felt my weight was not exactly the best broadcast of my own mental health. Now, after finding how tightly wound together mental and physical health can be, I always keep it in mind as a factor when counseling others and often draw from my own experience regarding the emotional boost one gets from taking control of one's physical well-being.

Congratulations! Us health professionals are poised perfectly to pass along The Spark! :-)

When I was large I felt I had no right to try to teach a patient of mine how to eat and to tell them how obesity could cause so much health problems. Now I can teach and when they say you don't know how I feel, I just show them all the weight I have lost and how much better I feel.

If you don't love yourself, how can you love someone else.
