Not easy, but possible

I admire people who have lost weight and kept it off for any length of time.  I also admire a good friend of mine who has worked hard to keep her weight down, when she also has overweight women in her family history (Steph!!).  

Diane, at fittothefinish.com, said in a recent guest post about her story that "It wasn't always easy."  My aforementioned friend has also said before that she just knows it's going to be something she has to be careful about for the rest of her life.   Notice neither said it was so easy and the weight just dropped off!!  

When I hit those rough days or moments where I just want to eat too much I have to remind myself that no one said it was going to be easy; but they did say that it is possible and can be done.  


  1. I totally agree!

    Once I finally get to where I want to be, I know it will be work to stay there, but I will constantly remind myself that its not as hard as the trip that got me there to begin with!

  2. Leah - It wasn't easy, but it was worth it! And something you don't see a lot of people say, but is true for me, is that maintenance is easier than weight loss.

    Just like your kids will find that once they know those multiplication tables super fast, higher math will be easier for them!

  3. Pam - Thanks for stopping by! We will get there! :)

    Diane - I'm glad to hear maintenance is easier.
