I had to pray a lot during this process. So I would burn some oil to soothe my spirit because it was a fight within myself. And, trust me its no joke when you are battling within. So I had to meditate and ask God to help me through the process. I took one day at a time. And, when I got through one day, I started the next day. But, I only focused on one day at a time. So find time to settle and bring it all in and release the stress of the day, so you can focus on the weight lost and a healthier living. Remember its a life style change, not a stage in life. This is forever.
