    'Today is the first day of the rest of your diet'.......
    I was wondering how other people felt about that?
    I'm in a place where I feel quite positive about it all and hopefully it will last as as the quote says its a long haul!

    I would prefer "this is the first day of your healthy lifestyle" because diet suggests some temporary change that you can then stop when you get to target. As we all know that doesn't work and the changes you make need to be permanent, which is why SW is great because that is so easy!

    I think it is a great way of looking at things with a fresh pair of eyes- those of us who have been doing this a long time tend to go on autopilot- it is great to treat is as new occasionally.

    Agreed about swapping the word 'diet' though- makes you think of lettuce and bran, not indonesian spiced rice, chicken and prawns topped with a fried egg like I had to eat last night (all free!)

    Thanks for sharing

    I agree with 'first day of your healthy lifestyle' if we are honest with ourselves then most of us are now dieting because of an unhealthy lifestyle, I certainly do not want to be on a 'diet' for the rest of my life, I just need to adopt a permanent healthy lifestyle!
