This Sparked Me!

It's so easy to have a winner take all attitude when ou first begin; but it's important to remember that the gaining of the weight didn't happen overnight therefore losing it won't happen overnight. Focus on getting healthier, eating right, moving more, doing more. Set mini-goals such as trying to eat your daily serving of fruits and veggies each day. Drinking more water and less soda. Celebrate each small victory. Believe you can do this, Know you WILL do this.Commit to it.

Because it has helped me put things into perspective about healthy life choices and not a race to loose weight (which has never worked for me)

    Fantastic! I would also add tracking/journaling--
