My thoughts from 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle
Wow, what an eyeopener on this reading! I had to read the title again- Obesity is a condition and I had to let it sink in. It is a condition that I have to accept.
Spangle uses the example of diabetes being the same as obesity in the fact that once you get control that you have to live everyday of their lives in a way that keeps it managed. Diabetics can't just go on a vacation like I do when I decide not to stick to my diet. Obesity is something that I have to monitor for the rest of my life or else I will gain back the weight. That is why when Mo and I started this a year ago that I was adamant that this is a "healthy lifestyle change" rather than just a diet that I am following. So the change in my thinking is I have to plan how to manage my condition and how to build all these skills into my daily life or I risk gaining the weight back time and time again. I don't want that! I want long-term success! I will do anything to get it!
STICK TO YOUR GOALS!
NEVER GIVE UP!
YOU CAN DO THIS!
