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.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
