I was messaging with a dear friend today and we were discussing weight loss/dieting of course. I was reminded of hard hard this journey has been for me so far. No matter how much weight you have lost 10, 20, 30+ pounds it is hard work!! I was telling her a little bit about how there were many nights where I would go to bed early in tears because I was so "hungry" and just wanted to go to sleep and not think about food any more.
Food has so much power over us, but our minds have more. It wasn't a phsical hunger I was experiencing, it was a mental hunger. The key is to know the difference.
I fight everyday to make the right choices and keep on fighting the "food war" that I am having with myself. It is not an easy thing to do...
I will share something very personal with you that a "friend" said to me the other day. She says to me during our conversation "You look great don't get me wrong, but you know how it goes. What are you going to do when you gain it all back? That's what happens to everyone, it's like a roller coaster ride, enjoy it while you can!"
Ok, first of all this is not a true friend, if they say this to you!
I replied to her with this "NO, actually it's not. This is my life and I am changing for my health not just my apperance or the number on the scale! This is for good, you will see.
Working hard each day to prove these people wrong,
