Berkana's Battle of the Bulge

One day I was standing in front of the mirror brushing my teeth...and the thought suddenly struck me that my cheekbones had disappeared! What a horrifying revelation! The weight had crept on so gradually, and my brain had simply reorganized my view of myself so that, in my head, I still looked the same as I did when I graduated highschool. That moment of revelation was followed by years of frustration as, no matter what I seemed to do, the weight just kept creeping on.

Finally, a CORRECT medical diagnosis, the medication I needed, and stumbling across this website mentioned in a forum post on a support forum for my medical condition, and WOW! I can't believe the changes already taking place!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog - as awful as those "things" we've been through are at the time, that's how we grow into who we are. And you're right. We define ourselves, not the things that happen to us, although I do attribute the person I am to some of those events because (like you said) they do change us profoundly.

I hope you don't mind, I've added you as a friend. Looking forward to taking this journey with some pals close by. The road is long but time does pass so quickly. Thanks again. :)

Thanks for the advise! I think everyone agrees that I have been doing too much and not eating enough (which I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around!).

I will give it a try and I will keep you updated!

Thanks

Thank you for commenting on my tracking blog. So glad someone else completely understands what it does to my journey!

The final straw on the soda happened when a fitness trainer I was working with over the summer told me that the soda I was drinking was eating away at my bones and raising my risk for osteoporosis. I am already high risk for that and I watched my Grandmother die from it...have a leg amputated prior due to brittleness of her bones. I decided right then and there that I would finally give it up. I'm not going to do anything to my body that increases my risk for that awful condition. It took at least 3 months for the craving to go away but now I never even think about soda.

Keep trying! It is a totally awful product to put in your body! Nothing good about it at all. Worth giving up! emoticon emoticon

Thank you for popping in to read my blog... it's a good feeling to know we are not alone on this journey and we have much to learn from others and what they are doing that works for them and just might work for us too! emoticon
