100lbs x 3 = 0

As each day passes, I realize that I am holding on to the idea that in order for me to lose weight and be healthy, I must be following an extreme "plan" of some sort, which will allow me to see results. I am constantly on the search for a "miracle" which will save me (like the juice fast) and yet I don't just work with what I have RIGHT NOW. You see, I have a vast amount of knowledge in the weight loss arena. I have lost 100lbs THREE TIMES OVER! And then I have gained it all, and then some as soon as I get there because I slack off and then go right back to where I was and what I was doing that got me there in the first place. 100lbs... that is a LOT of weight! and yet now, here I am, with still yet more than that to lose again. It's almost like I haven't ever been really serious about a LIFE CHANGE... only a LIFE PHASE, and that is the main issue here I think. Because, if I really had the right mindset, I would be in the place where I need to be and follow all the rules and information I already know, instead of wasting hours at a time searching for more, better answers, a miracle, other's ideas, etc. I would just go with my gut. So, that's where I am at right now guys. I know I want this. I know I need this. And I know I MUST do it.

THE ONLY THING STOPPING ME IS: ME.
    
So, there you have it, folks. Admittedly, I am my only  barrier. What to do now? Well, that's a simple answer: Get off my ass and do like Nike.... Just. Do. It. All this planning and goal setting and motivation is killing time, using up the precious resource that is definitely a must to be able to accomplish this goal. So, while I long to be at my ideal body weight, longing will not get me anywhere. But, hard work will. And that is what I need to do.
