for about 4 yrs, i was leader in GA for TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)
and before every meeting, everyone stands and says a pledge. in the pledge, it says 2 things that ring so true..
1. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me
2. Even though I overeat in private,
the excess poundage is there for the world to see
my emotions drive myself crazy and i can make myself believe in just about anything.
if i get my feelings hurt, or get sad or start thinking stupid, i want to EAT and eat and eat and eat and then eat some more…it is hard to not let my emotions control me…
life issues are hard on us and right now, i am stressing hard with my job at work.
stress is NOT good for anyone (fat or not)
i am uncomfy eating in front of people..to see someone watch me eat and my mind thinks they are making fun of me..look at that fat lady eating…its like also see fat people at the grocery store loading up on healthy foods, fruit when we all
know we stop by mcdonalds on the way home……yes, that was ME
and we all know that if no one sees us eat it, then the calories dont count..
well, lord if that was the answer, i would weigh about 80 pounds haha
it is what you think
it is what you do
it is what you dont do
and it is up to you..
but the answer is, what is it that YOU want?
we all wanna lose weight but until we do something about it…..
i close with something my big bad 82nd Airborne brother said to me once,
either shut up or do something about it….
loud and clear.
