JUST WHEN THE CATERPILLAR THOUGHT THE WORLD WAS OVER, SHE BECAME A BUTTERFLY...
I have lost weight in the past - I'm no stranger to weight loss and I could probably write a book about how to do it, if I were only a good writer... I lose weight incredibly fast, even with healthy plans - all I need is willpower and genuine interest in the goal. If I stay interested, I will do it. I said originally, when I set this profile up that I am either on or off the wagon with nothing in between. I am the one who got myself in this mess and I'm the only one who can get me out of this, ...
I have lost weight in the past - I'm no stranger to weight loss and I could probably write a book about how to do it, if I were only a good writer... I lose weight incredibly fast, even with healthy plans - all I need is willpower and genuine interest in the goal. If I stay interested, I will do it. I said originally, when I set this profile up that I am either on or off the wagon with nothing in between. I am the one who got myself in this mess and I'm the only one who can get me out of this, so I WILL NEVER abandon my goal. It's about life and living. I'm done with merely EXISTING.
I seem to have inherited the addictive personality from my lovely family, so I have had to redefine and understand that concept and learn to harness and direct those tendencies to a positive and healthy goal/addiction. Addictions never go away, they only shift and manifest themselves elsewhere.
This is the first time in the last 8 years that I have truly, 99.9% believed that I will do this since the beginning. NOW I know, 100% that time in my life is over. The voice inside me that used to insult and belittle me has spontaneously decided to yell at me until I succeed. I can't explain it. Positive schizophrenia? Who knows. I doubt myself and wonder if I can do it, and the voice screams at me saying "you WILL do it". It feels great and I am excited everyday to take that voice, who is my best friend after all (always has been), and find ways to better understand us both. The more I can learn about the obesity mindset and how it applies to me in the past, present and future, the more insurance I have to maintain this healthy lifestyle.
