Susan, I think a lot of us experience that at some point. What a good reminder. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Interesting and helpful. I seem to stop working at losing just before the ten percent lost point. Thanks for a post that helped me see that.

Susan, thank you for sharing this. I'm a bit on information-overload. I've read the book but had forgotten about the Tipping Point. Something about reading it the way you wrote it or my mind being open to it...(?) but it clicked...really clicked within me. Thank you for sharing this! Congratulations on your changes and revelations!

I'm on chapter 4 of The Spark and one thing that REALLY touched me [I think in Chapter 3] was the Tipping Point Theory! I LOVED it! Most people give up RIGHT BEFORE they're going to have a breakthrough. This helped me so, so much! So that *even* if I'm not seeing results immediately [like on the scale], I can keep enduring because at SOME POINT I will hit the tipping point and things WILL start moving. This happened to a friend of mine. She started a weightloss/exercise program and did her treadmill for 4 WHOLE months for 4 miles a day and didn't lose ONE pound! Then after 4 months, she started dropping a pound a day and has kept it off for over a year!

Also, I have to say that this is the first time in over 20 years that I don't feel like I'm on a diet, but rather changing my WHOLE outlook on eating, exercise, LIFE choices, etc.! I'm THRILLED about this change!

Have a great day!
