Don't expect to see big differences immediately. It took a while to get to an unhealthy condition--it will take some time to get healthy!

    That's right. It's especially hard when your family doesn't make the best choices either...but now that I've seen what I looked like at my heaviest and knowing that I've lost 25lbs so far keeps me motivated. Not to mention having to carry around about 15lbs for about a mile has made me really motivated to NOT gain the weight back.
My secret of success so far is carrying around even a portion of the extra weight I used to have so, in turn, I am even more motivated to lose more weight.

    That's what I always say. It took me awhile to gain the weight, it'll take awhile to get rid of it!
