Every day you eat sensibly makes it that much less likely you will overeat again. The new you will become the only you in time. Your inner self will catch up to your outer self in time. No matter how many years you spent building up a self-image labeled fat, frumpy, foolish, failure, it can be destroyed and replaced by the knowledge that you are attractive, effective, and successful, inside and out. Give yourself that time.
My goal is to get rid of this excess weight. I am currently working on the next 5 pounds.
Update-July 2005 - I have lost 15 lb. I hope to be under 200 by September.
I did not reach my under-200 goal by September 2005.
I will be happy to be under 200 whenever it happens.
Update (July 2007) - I am still fighting to get below 200. The difference is that this time I am going to do it. Seven more pounds....
August 22, 2007 - at last I am 199. On to the next challenge.
I joined TOPS January 2006 but did not renew my membership in 2012.

We often tell ourselves that small steps are really not all that effective, and we use that as an excuse to stand still. When in reality, nine times out of ten, it’s those small steps that make those big changes happen. To begin all it takes is one very small, manageable step. And the very best time to begin is right now, Saturday August 20, 2016.

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!

You have what you need to succeed. Even as stress swirls around you, there is a place within you that is free of self-doubt and full of strength.
A place of calm and confidence, where purpose and passion come together.
Deep down, you know the truth: You've got what it takes!
