How Badly Do You Want To Win?

I am trying desperately to lose weight. I've struggled with my weight for most of my adult life, except for a 7 year period from late 1990 to 1997. At the moment I'm winning. I am following a good weight loss plan. I have a long term goal and a series of intermediate ones. I'm focused. And most of all, I want to lose weight more than I want pizza. And I want pizza a lot!

I'm using the same approach to this battle that I used to beat debt. But desire is the key. Until we want to win badly enough to step out of our comfort zone and change our behavior, we will ultimately fail. But once the desire balance tips in favor of winning, we are on our way.

Beating debt and living financially free is hard work sometimes. But the end result is so very worth it.
