My favorite quote by Elisabeth Kubler Ross is "HE WHO ANGERS YOU CONQUERS YOU". As an emotional eater in recovery - that quote is my mantra. Don't let others control you by making you angry. You are the only one who can control YOU!
I do a 100. well maybe 90 squats in the shower-1.5 mins it takes to do this - my thighs are starting to tone up nicely. I find I have more strength and endurance when I go to the gym.
if you lose weight, staying in the baggy, gray t-shirts and sweatpants you own will only make you think it is okay to pack pounds on again because you have room to. If you lose the weight, you should want to express it better with your appearance and new style!
