They're both hard, but it's probably pretty obvious to see that health has the better outcome in the long run.

MY hard is losing weight especially after my body let me know I was killing myself. Very EYE opening experience. Thanks for the quote.

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!
