The diagnosis of pre-diabetes 3 years ago got me very determined to, this time, not only lose the weight but to keep it off. I am happy to say I am down 80 pounds and during my 3 year journey I have reversed that diagnosis, lowered my BP and my cholesterol.
I am definitely committed to this healthier lifestyle.
Thanks I’m determined
This article really brought home the fact that while I'm interested in losing that last 25 pounds I haven't really committed to it. I know what will happen if I don't lose some of it by March and I need to get my mind reset to make sure I can at least lose 10 pounds by March when I go back to the doctor.
Oh, I love it. Though I'm really committed to doing exercise, I'm lacking commitment when it comes to weight loss. I'm interested, but so far I've proved and I know I haven't committed.
good info, thank you
I agree with the other SP friends, in this thread! Daily excitement is what keeps me going, to reach my baby step goals, that lead to the BIG 1! Thx for the article!
Attitude is everything. Until the goal is really important to us, we will find many excuses to move away from it. Change is unsettling, and not easy! The more positive way to look @ it is feeling unsettled is a sign that we are READY to change! Use that feeling to your advantage.
Great thought-provoking blog.
food for thought.
