Think of all the difficulties of being overweight in comparison to the difficulties of losing weight. They're both hard, but it's probably pretty obvious to see that health has the better outcome in the long run.

I really like this quote. It brings your choices into perspective. How I CHOOSE to live my life is truly up to me. I choose to lose :)

I have so often thought what will it take to make you do the work to get healthy as I am sitting feeling ill from eating that huge bowl of ice cream I know is going to keep me up all night with heartburn. That is why I came to Spark- to figure some of this out & get motivated to do the right hard work! Thanks- really like this one hits home hard for me.

I like this perspective - this is something I need to remember when I get discouraged at the weight that doesn't seem to come off no matter how much I exercise. No one ever said this would be easy!

I agree with this except for one thing. Having an eating disorder is even harder. I've watched my 2 children think they are too big, start dieting and lose themselves to a monster. One has recovered, one still is in the struggle and has been for 2 years. We have nearly lost her several times Yes, eat well, yes be the best you can be but be careful to not let it consume you. And if you have lost so much and are compelled to lose more than is a healthy weight. Get help!

This is one of the things that helped me lose weight...when I thought about it, it was harder and more frustrating to eat things I wanted and then watch my weight fluctuate than it was to eat healthily and maintain a strong body and lower weight.
