From Allan's post DAY 367, WEDNESDAY, APR 27, 2011
Tibetan monks, TV stars, athletes, Harry the guy that shines my shoes, they are all on a plan, whether it is written down to follow or not. Obese people have no plan, we eat until we are tired of eating. We need to be trained. I am not trained and it has been a year and a day. I hope I can be trained within this second year. Every day is a reminder that I need to get healthy, stay the course, follow the plan, not eat a cookie, and try to beat the reaper. Every freaking Day. After 3 months of following a plan, or 12 months Mike, it is not going away. Again, one word my friend, PATIENCE. This is a struggle, it is not rocket science, and it is not the hardest thing you will ever do. This is what we have to do to give us the strength to do the hardest things we will ever do. All good, but chill out and just stay with us !!! I love the Allan reference of course, and I will preach to you what I have found for as long as you will listen.
