Mr. Ping: The secret ingredient is… nothing!
Mr. Ping: You heard me. Nothing! There is no secret ingredient.
Po: Wait, wait… it’s just plain old noodle soup? You don’t add some kind of special sauce or something?
Mr. Ping: Don’t have to. To make something special you just have to believe it’s special.

Po: There is no secret ingredient…
I know every couple of months I decide I need to lose weight, every couple of month I also fail to lose the weight and I go back to my unhealthy and undisciplined lifestyle. Every time I say this time is different and that this time it will actually happen. So all I will say this time is: What have I got to lose?
What I will say however and this has been an amazing motivating factor is that I have a boyfriend that love me “just as I am”. Yet he fully understand that I don’t like me “just as I am”. Not only is he willing to walk the walk, every step of the way with me, he honestly believes I can do it. This shocked me a bit because I don’t know if I can do this. I don’t know how to do this long-term!
It is almost as if he is the special ingredient to my noodle soup, he believes something special!
As soon as I have been paid I will make some changes:
First of all I will join Weigh-less along with my best friend, where I will learn some healthy habits and hopefully I will have a half pint Irish granny like Shebee, whom I will be scared of. And secondly I will join and go to gym with my one and only.
I won’t say I am excited. I won’t say this is going to work. I will say I will give it a go. I will say I will make an effort. I will say I am doing this for my own benefit.
I will say: “What have I got to lose?”
