"The greatest battle is not physical but psychological. The demons telling us to give up when we push ourselves to the limit can never be silenced for good. They must always be answered by the quiet the steady dignity that simply refuses to give in.
Courage. We all suffer. Keep going." - Graeme Fife

"It's better to get mugged than live a life of fear."
-Freeman Dyson

I've dieted many times over the years, but I've never
approached it with the desire to take the time to make real changes. I know I'll need to make small changes to a lifetime of bad habits, but that is the only way I'll succeed in losing weight and becoming healthier.

I've always been the heavy friend or sister. I don't have a clue what it feels like to be the "skinny" friend. And you know what? I probably won't ever know how that feels. I'm not built for no hips, super model skinniness (is that a word?) but I can be thinner than this. I can be in the best shape of my life. I can be able to run a 5K or up a flight of stairs, for that matter, without calling in the paramedics.
I'm not going to get healthy just by cutting out calories. I hate to say this, because heaven knows I am not a fan of sweating but I have to exercise. And this means consistent and heart pumping exercise.
