My biggest regret when it comes to my weightloss is that I didn't see it through the first time I realized there was a problem. That fact is what drives me now to not stop, and to get to the place I feel I need to be.

Outside my weight loss journey, I have to say my regret has been thinking that I'll have more time. In the last few years, I have lost my grandmother. My sister almost died twice. My mother was diagnoised with breast cancer in stage 4. Through those experiences, I have learned that life is truly a gift. Don't put off what you can do now with the idea of doing it later because today is a gift. Tomorrow is not promised. So, Now I try to enjoy life to the fullest.

definitely a lot of what I have done to get myself where I am today and a little of what I have not--

I think I regret more of what I haven't done:

Furthering my education to get a better career (something I still want to do but being poor and worried about not being smart enough both always hold me back).

Wishing I would have gotten and kept weight off a long time ago. But, oh well, I'm working on it now.

I think the only regret that I have is that I wasn't a real good example to my children in the food department.

I have few regrets about my past. It has made me the woman I am today and I like myself. However, since you asked, there are a few things that I regret NOT doing (yet) so I guess "haven't done" wins.

You can be the hammer, making things happen, or you can be the nail that sits there and gets pummeled over and over. It's time to start being the hammer.

Tricky. I think the things that I have done have kept me from the things Id have like to have done.

Haven't done

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

This definitely is a tricky question for me but I'm leaning more to what I've done.

You're not living if you have no regrets. The past makes us who we are today or who we become. I just try to live for the future.

At this stage in your life do you regret more what you haven't done or what you have done?
