This is something I've really been working with coming to terms with. I didn't gain weight because I went on birth control, or because my family is fat and I was doomed...I have been eating too much unhealthy food and not exercising for over 5 years now. That is why I have gained 70 pounds. That weight is not going to come off quickly or easily, and even once it does, that's the only the beginning of the battle. In order to be successful, I need to take responsibility for myself and how I treat my body. Its the only one I have. I've just begun my journey, and I know I will no doubt have bad days. My overarching goal isn't actually weight loss...its taking responsibility for my health and well-being. Weight loss is simply part of that.
