On some of the questions I wanted to answer true AND false...depending on the situation. For instance "do I think that weight loss will solve other life problems?" Do I think it will solve ALL of life's problems...NO but I do believe it will solve some; not because of the weight loss in lbs but because of the results of the loss, more activity, better mood, feel healthy (more energy,etc). "Do I believe that I will never slip up?" Of course I will have good days and bad days however I do EXPECT myself to stick to my goals and feel some defeat when I don't the trick is to not let it stop me overall. Someone in one of my groups said, "if you run a red light you don't give up and continue to run them from then on" (paraphrase). I know that this is a lifetime change which in and of itself can be a STRESSOR, lifetime (hopefully) is a long time!
