  • Best article I have read on this site in a long time. Excellent!!
  • This article had me shouting, "Amen, sugar! You tell it like it is!" Soon as I read that you need to quit the drama, I love the author. Yes, I need to practice what I preach but it still comes down to you are the only one to control your habits and to make your choices. You make a mistake. OK, get up, kick thru it, dust your britches, and keep on going! Oh, and don't forget to be thankful at the end of the day.
  • Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. - Helen Keller
    attitude says it all. the right one gets you there.
  • I like this one!
  • Articles are a great reminder of things forgotten.
    These articles are great motivators, I'm fearful the I will go backwards, now that I've achieved so much.
  • If you can't pronounce it, you probably shouldn't be eating it.
  • All excellent points. No one controls you! Stop being a victim and take control of your body. And, I speak this as someone who once weighed over 300 lbs. I get it. But, you CAN be successful if you change your attitude and take control of your life.
  • Such a helpful article! Thanks, I find I'm slipping into the fatitudes mentioned here over the holiday. Yesterday I ate TWO giant bagels late at night and blamed it on my husband who bought them and left them on the counter.

    Need to ask him to bring trigger foods down into his basement den when he does this. He's always gracious about doing that when I ask.
  • This is an excellent article which also could be applied to other human efforts that require long term commitment for success, like staying on a budget and avoiding debt, keeping things organized and clean, completing a degree, etc. All require long term maturity and a certain amount of wisdom as opposed to crazy all or nothing or victim thinking. The attitude tune-up is much more important than knowing the simple "facts" of how food and exercise function; those are comparatively easy once the issues in this article are addressed.
  • Love this article. "perfectionism and the desire for instant gratification" was the phrase that really resonated with me!
  • Excellent article, much appreciated!
