Where can I purchase a journal/tracker so I can get started. I feel so miserable and I just keep getting bigger and bigger. Help!
The biggest problem I have is, in keeping with the analogy, liking the end table I have too well. In other words, liking the foods and amounts that I like and not wanting to change my habits are my biggest obstacles.
Great article about making it personal! I loved the image of making the coffee table. Thanks for putting an image with how we can all craft our own bodies, minds and spirits.

Right on. This absolutely sums it up. When most people, myself included, first decide to lose weight, they just think something vague and big like "I'm going to lose [this many] pounds" or "This is the year I'm finally going to do it" without any kind of plan or strategy or know-how. I've lost 55 pounds since January 2007 and have 20-some left to lose, and I only finally started losing weight when, before I started really trying, I sat down and started researching and reading about weight loss and how it works and how many pounds lost per week was healthy, etc. And that's what finally made the difference: I went into it this last time with a PLAN and specific steps I would take and ways I would keep track of my journey/progress. The specifics of one's planning and goal-setting are crucial to success. Great article.
