I've realized something today.......

........for the first time in my life I have lost more weight on my current life changing journey than ever lost before. I've always lost 12 pounds here, 16 pounds here, and ended up gaining it all back. I have actually lost 20 lbs to date!! 4 lbs more than any previous attempt. And to make it even better, I have no intentions of giving up or returning to my old ways.

So what is the difference this time?? After a few lengthy conversations with myself ....(really....I'm not crazy!) I have realized that I am ready this time. I'm really ready to shed my fat coat and come out once and for all. Is it all a mentality thing? Do you really have to be ready to lose weight for it to come off?? Of all the success stories I have read, every single one of them has tried 10 billion different diets, and all ending in the same failure. So why did the last one work? Why did it finally all come together?? My thoughts are that these success stories finally believed that they deserved a happy ending! So regardless of what your doing to lose weight, your mind has to be in the same boat, you have to want it more than anything you have ever wanted before.

And I'll just say that right now I've never wanted it so badly in my life!!


  1. Nice!! Congratulations.
    I have convos with myself all the time...not saying I'm normal, just saying I feel ya. :P Seriously though, that's really fantastic. Once you're mentally onboard, it's a done deal mama!! You rawk!!

  2. WTG! I soo think you have to mentally ready to lose the weight. If your heart and mind are not in it its almost impossible to change the old habits!
