1) Exercise matters. It matters a lot. Absent regular exercise, I will gain weight while eating very little.

2) If I am committed to 40 sedentary hours a week at work, exercise alone is insufficient. I will have to watch what I eat in addtion to exercising.

These are so well said they're worth repeating. To #2 I would add: "especially if your 40 sedentary hours is HIGH STRESS".


5) I have not been very successful at controlling eating while life is distrating me. I think the key is to achieve a mindset where food is not on page one of my priority list. It is easier to squeeze excess eating out by wanting to do something else than by sheer will power.

Can you elaborate a little more, or give an example? Are you talking about boredom eating vs other types of entertainment? Or about caring about what you eat (good food vs junk)?
