My Journey to Happiness...

I have been overweight my whole life. It's still hard for me to imagine being anything else but fat! I'm more then 1/2 way through my journey now and I'm finally understanding myself and how I WORK! I now love being active and just completed my first 5K and did a 27 Mile Bike Race recently! Those things were unthinkable for me just a year ago! The key for me has been to be consistent and NOT give up and fall into old habits. Many times before I've dieted for a few months, lost 30 or so ...
I have been overweight my whole life. It's still hard for me to imagine being anything else but fat! I'm more then 1/2 way through my journey now and I'm finally understanding myself and how I WORK! I now love being active and just completed my first 5K and did a 27 Mile Bike Race recently! Those things were unthinkable for me just a year ago! The key for me has been to be consistent and NOT give up and fall into old habits. Many times before I've dieted for a few months, lost 30 or so pounds, got to a plateau, then gave up. I calculated it once and I estimate I've lost over 150 pounds the past 10 years of dieting... then gained it back. I could be at my goal weight if I didn't give up! It takes time to re-train all the years of bad habits. I want to lose this life long baggage of weight, but I've now come to realize that it's not just about the number on the scale and my body. I need to work on the inside too. If that takes me awhile, that's okay because I know it will be worth it in the end!

Thank you for your post on the "Staying Motivated" Boards the other day. I am bumping it up in hopes that more people will see it.

I carried in my cart a bag of chips, walking throughout the store. Went to the fruit section and picked out some fruit I felt would feel good to eat. Then I put the bag of chips back. It was a good trade off. It felt motivating to have done this. I read your post, but lost it, so I am commenting here. Hope that's okay. Keep trying. Try the trade off from fat to healthy. We people love to bargain and trade. Make it work for you, not against you. You can do this.
