Why do we do it?

Why do we keep trying this "dieting" thing, this herculean life-long attempt at making a lifestyle change?

So many of us try and fail, and then try again, and fail again. And sometimes after a failure we've gained even more, and lost self esteem. Is it worth it?

What's this holy grail that keeps us trying? I guess it's the desire for health and beauty and self-esteem. Proving we CAN succeed.

And, yes, it is SO worth it. Never give up.

    But it's not supposed to be a diet honey - it's supposed to be lifestyle changes made slowly and with thoughtful consideration. That will be what makes the magic happen! Small changes that slowly add up to big results and you'll want to stick with the changes longer - you can do it!!

    Yes it is worth it.

    We continually read and learn, it's putting this knowledge into action that's the hard part.

    I still say baby steps are the way to go.
    Don't overwhelm yourself trying to do everything at once.

    Slowly but surely.

    Yes, we can. I am doing it now and am going to continue doing it. I'm even trying my best to influence people around me to change and to live healthier.
    We can all do it!!! If it is what we wanted.
