what part of this is hard.
the not eating?
the doing without?
the …..(you fill in the blanks)
eating is not bad and never will be.
however eating too much of something (esp if high calorie or junk laden foods)
are not the best choices. Every so often is fine and i am a strong opponent
for people to eat what they want but make choices as to how much and how often.
and YES i am pointing directly at myself
i love nothing more than sitting on a couch and eating BBQ chips
but i cannot do that….i did it way to often this past year and guess
what happened…..excess calories, no movement to burn any off and wala
if i had to sit here and think i could never have this or that again..i would
go nuts…that sounds a lot like dieting to me and i dont want to diet no more.
why? it doesnt work. been there done that…most overweight people have.
i was a failure and a yo yo dieters for years. i retired from that.
eating to lose weight is the right thing to do
my WLS helps me with how much i can eat..if i eat too much, it does get very
uncomfortable. not hurt but def not a nice feeling. i ignored that for a long while.
yep i did..i was one who ate w/o regard to hurting myself and ate around the band.
that means eating junk food, sliders, and not the protein that i have to chew
getting the WLS i did helped me and then i stopped helping
and here is where i am now.
SO i am going about going back to what i know works.
walking (aka movement)
drinking a lot (you’d be surprised that just drinking cold water or my SF peach tea)
helps conquer that thought you are hungry when in reality, we are just thirsty. #TRUTH
the part that is hard for me, is my self doubt and my self esteem
i feel like such a failure and i am so ashamed that i am battling that
aspect of this journey right now. i may have my body covered in tattoo’s and
piercings everywhere, but just one comment or one wrong wayward look would set me
back and make me go F**K It….i need to be stronger mentally to fight this battle
within and now that i am on my path to my journey (no end date until my last breath)
i need it more than ever
i must live/breath this 24/7
