Just had a friend of facebook post a quote "Live is uncertain. Eat dessert first."

I replied "Live is uncertain -- you better exercise before you eat that dessert."

To me, those are the words that I live by. Don't live to eat -- eat to live.

What other pearls of wisdom have you learned on your weight loss journey?

Eat your veggies first, dont drink calories, and don't follow too many rules (including my first two)!

I agree with Heidijoy, I try to eat the foods that I have the most trouble getting enough of first (veggies) and then if I am still hungry, go for the rest but quit when I feel full and try to eat slowly so my body has a chance to tell me when I am full before I eat too much.

Starving self and gaining weight
I gain a good 5-10lbs when I begin lifting again after a lay off. It's natural. You retain water in healing muscles.
