I am stubborn. Though stubborn isn't always bad. ;) Sometimes I'm bad stubborn, but sometimes I'm good stubborn. If I really believe in something strongly you'd need a bulldozer to move me, and even then good luck!
Just call me "Little Miss Stubborn".

Since I've been struggling so much lately I once again pulled out a bunch of my old journals and poured over them last night. Back in 2001 (yes, I've been at this a while), I had a ton of success - so I concentrated my efforts there.
What struck me was that for months and months and months I stayed within my Weight Watchers points range. I was eating substantially less food/points than I am now, and it was enough. I was exercising at a pretty high level then too - not quite as high, but close enough. And you know what? I was just fine. I didn't die of starvation. I remember being comfortably full and rarely ever feeling hungry. I had plenty of energy. And I lost weight.
There is absolutely no reason for me to be eating as much as I have been lately. I DO NOT need that much food! Time to apply this strong personality trait to this area of my life. I'm starting to get mad and that's gonna fuel this fire.
It's time to get stubborn!
