Let's Talk.....

Thursday, April 22, 2021

In response to a great blog today, dealing with compliments, absolutely nailed it for me. Here is my response, and how I am dealing with everyday life......

All of your blog "nails it for me, and so many others." We, I, struggle with compliments, mainly because we, I, still have that "OLD GAL VISION" of what we looked like before. But you have to understand, I was ALWAYS Morbid Obese, I never was a smaller size, in my youth, tweens, teens, or much of my adult life.

So just trying to "get to ONEDERLAND" would be the most exciting thing for me. Being healthy, onederland, even though BMI still off the charts, because I am 4'11, but smaller, more "LOOKING LIKE THE AVERAGE SMALLER GAL" would be amazing.....and so I continue to work on a healthy lifestyle!

Diet, no way, but Consistent Healthy Eating, to the best of my ability, adding exercise at least 30 minutes a day, minimum, most days over 1 hour, and THIS GAL is living the best I can, doing the best I can, and will continue to "LIVE THE LIFESTYLE!"

    If I may pay you a compliment, And most sincerely, That is a prize winning smile with your husband in the lower picture. I know it is a struggle and for some even more. All 3 of my grown kids always had great metabolisms, And so None of them were never overweight. I wasn't he there when I was younger however after menopause it was a different story!..... Their metabolism seemed to take a vacation and go on a downward spiral as I watched lbs creep on easily but were so hard to take off! ... I wholeheartedly agree with your attitude about lifestyle and stay away from the diets. (They can cause a whole lot of damage)... Now I am busy maintaining but I will not say maintaining what LOL! ... Just staying alive at this late date is winning for me LOL. Keep on living and loving!
