Never Think "Diet" Alway Think "Lifestyle"

This Sparked Me!

The only thing I can say is that since day one, I changed my thoughts to "this is how I will eat for the rest of my life", not just some short term fix. Yes, now, I can eat just a little more, but really not much more that throughout the entire weight loss process. 100+ lbs lost and maintaining.

    This is SO true! I never say "Diet", it's always Lifestyle change. And I know I can maintain this weight loss because of it.

    I have discovered this since I have more or less gone to maintenance, maintaining is not that much different than losing. I'm glad I had changed my attitude about food and exercise from the very beginning or maintainance would be even harder than it is now.
