Right now I am working on not taking this tool for granted. I weigh about once a week and try to maintain an online food diary at http//:www.sparkpeople.com
My weaknesses are that I am a lazy ass who hates to exercise and I haven't done well in that area.
I also smoke and drink coffee which I know are no-no's.
My strengths are that I am somewhat self-aware and can usually recognize a self destructive eating habit quickly before it gets out of hand.
I am--though not perfect about it--at least consistent about taking my vitamins and logging my food.
On an emotional level, I am petrified of gaining my weight back. I know that a certain amount of bounce back weight is expected. If I were to gain it all back, to be perfectly honest, I don't know if I have it in me to lose it yet again. I would be miserable, embarrassed, and deeply disappointed in myself.
This is the most weight I have ever lost and kept off for this long.
Here's a link to my story if you are interested.
