Instead of making short term goals only or halfway attempts, to really get back on track I needed to take an honest look at what it would take to achieve permanent change. I had to assess if I was ready to make the commitment.Then I made a promise to log my foods at least 5x/wk. and to walk at least 3-4x/wk. and to begin strength training, and decided that I was not going to try a crash diet or to angst about exact calories, but to move forward boldly and publicly.

  • Sounds like you are on the right track. - by SUE-Z-QUE
  • I like the terms "boldly and publicly." It really is bold to move forward, making huge changes and adapting a healthier lifestyle. Thanks for the inspiration. - by RUTHAHONA
  • It's the publicly thing that keeps me going. I eat in secret and hide my downfalls. If I have to publicly commit and answer for what I do, I stick to it better. I need to work on that. - by TEACHANGELS
