7-8 months later...

Sunday, March 15, 2009

Well, I got fed up and I stopped trying. It has been 7-8 months of eating whatever I wanted, and I won't lie, it felt good! I think I was wanting to lose weight for all the wrong reasons. I was so focused on the scale that I forgot how to love me for me. I don't need a lifeless piece of machinery to tell me whether I am allowed to have a good day or a bad day, whether I am allowed to feel proud of ashamed of myself. I will decide!! How will I know if I'm losing weight? Because it's my body! Because I live in it every day and know how I feel in it! Because my clothes will feel different and I will feel healthier.
Today is a new day and it will be a good day...everyday will be a good day!!!

    I am so happy to hear from you! It sounds like you have gotten so focused on getting healthy for the sake of being healthy! That is SO great! Living a healthy lifesytle will lead to weight loss. I have accepted that the most important thing to focus on is getting and staying healthy by eating the right foods and by exercising! The weight loss will be a side effect of that lifestyle!

    I hope you come back to the group and thread soon!
