LOVED it!! This should help anyone with an "I'm on a diet" mentality to really look at what they are trying to achieve. Good health, improved fitness, a longer life. I have maintained that I am not on a diet, I have simply chosen a healthier way to eat and made a commitment to physical exercise. I have chocolate, I enjoy lunches out, I don't deprive myself, I just make better choices. I no longer eat an entire bag of candy, but rather a piece or two. Once in a while, if I feel that I over indulged, I can now make a more valiant effort in my work out. This helps me to keep from ever feeling like I've blown it and I might as well throw in the towel. Thanks for the article, it was great!!

I LOVED THIS ARTICLE.I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THE WAY MY GOALS WERE WORDED.I DEFINITELY WORD THEM IN A NEGATIVE WAY.I WILL BE CHANGING THE WAY MY GOALS ARE WROTE.THANK YOU.
The part about having true feedom of choice really hit home with me. I am going to review my goals, reword my goals and remember positive wording. That willhelp me think in a positive way. I think it will affect my whole attitude and what I am capable of.
