"7) Advice for others trying to lose weight?
Don’t stop. Don’t give up. Never surrender. All it takes is motivation and time, and if you have both of those, nothing is standing in your way but yourself and your fears. Conquer those fears. Own them.
Set a routine and stick to it as best you can. Try not to fall into old habits. Don’t weigh yourself more than once or twice a week, and, above all, remember that you are more than that number on the scale. Even if you have a bad week or two or three, you’re headed in the right direction once you make the decision to change your life – never forget that."
