I suddenly feel really good about myself. While I'm not yet where I want to be in terms of body fat and weight, my lifestyle is, by far, the healthiest it's ever been. I'm only improving. In fact, I didn't know that a serving of steamed vegetables is half a cup, so I'm actually eating four servings a day, drinking tons of water, and exercising nearly every day. I can't believe myself.
When I was in high school I was naturally thin. I ate crap, tons of it, and all the time. And I never exercised. I was like 135 pounds. I totally took that for granted, so I never had a healthy lifestyle until now.
I think that when I reach my goal (I don't even know what it is, but 140-145 and 25% body fat sounds nice) I will totally be able to keep this up indefinitely. It feels good to live healthily.
