Lasting weight loss is serious business.
If and when you lose a significant amount of weight, (and even a small amount of weight can qualify as “significant”) it will likely be a big part of your personal evolution and the life long journey you’re on to understanding and truly knowing yourself.
It’s usually not until after you’ve lost the weight or have hit a plateau that you discover losing weight is only half the battle. Keeping the weight off is the other half. It can be really tough to work through personal baggage and heal old wounds that may have lead you to turn to food for comfort or entertainment in the past. In some cases it will be even harder than counting calories or finding the motivation to exercise or get active.
