I learned to love exercise with a buddy who kept me accountable. We took classes (jazzercise, kickboxing, pilates, etc.) together. Once I got hooked on the class, I really didn't need the accountability. The fun of the classes kept me going back for more!

Exercising everyday keeps me motivated to live healthy. I used to try to diet alone without exercise. It always failed. Now I try to focus more on exercise and less on food. I have done this long enough now that exercise is something I rarely miss and feel bad if I don't get it done for the day.
Most people don't like to eat alone, I know I don't but since I am single I do most of the time. Once I measure my food, I wanted to inhale it because I didn't like being alone. I keep a book or the newspaper at the table to make me savor the flavors. At work I read my e-mail on weekends, during the week I watch jeopardy. This makes me enjoy my food and leads me to eating less (you get full faster)
