I appreciate the comments other have posted here and echo many of the sentiments. I too need to remember to bring my concerns, frustrations and downfalls to the boards and my spark teams for added support when i need it most. I too thought question 6 could be addressed from two perspectives - I do fully expect to be less winded taking the stairs, have knees that don't hurt nearly as much and other physical improvements due to weightloss. However, I am learning (finally) to like myself, including my physical self, better now. I'm not waiting to reinvigorate my marriage, to look for that great job or all the other things I've put off in the past until I had reached my weight loss goal.
If this article does nothing more (which I believe it does) it definitely points the reader toward addressing things that can increase our stress when trying to regain our health. I've often said I would know I had gotten it right when I could lose weight and not feel like I'm obsessing over everything I put in my mouth.
Best of luck and will power to us all!
