When I look at other people who seem to find fitness easy I remind myself that they are just the same as me and not superhuman. The only difference between me and them is that they have already made fitness a habit.
When something's habitual you don't have to think about it, it just happens!

The most important thing in staying healthy and weight loss is to drink, drink drink! So many people struggle with it. I bought a SP water bottle and take it everywhere I go... it keeps the water cool and fresh. And you feel so much better when you are hydrated.
I am keeping my body weight off, and people around me are starting to pick up the habit!
We are stronger in a group. I know I walk furter than I think I can when I go with someone else. I won't call uncle at the first twinge when I am not alone. Its better for me and my lazy dog when we walk and play with others where others can see us and we can see them - we don't dawdle as often.
This is day six of abstinence for me . I am not going to keep track of the days forever .. I have heard that it takes 6 weeks to create a new habit so that is 42 days I am going to do it for 84 day so I am sure that recording food and daily exercise is really a habit
Upon opening the refrigerator to mindlessly graze, ask: "Do I really need to eat right now, or am I snacking because I'm stressed, tired, or bored?" If it's really the scheduled time to snack, choose a healthy snack instead of the comfort food. If not, choose to shut the door instead of sabotaging the development of healthy new eating habits.
This prevents me from ruining the progress I have made with healthy new eating habits
