Shel Silverstein wrote this wonderful poem "What if ..." about our fears. If I lose weight, what if no one treats me differently? what if I still lack confidence? what if I still don't feel like I fit in? What if I'm still invisible? As you say, losing weight doesn't solve any of those issues. But I think our fears about those issues might be part of why so many of us regain the weight we lose. I've been there -- lost 105 pounds and regained it all +10.
Hey!! Well the more buddies I have to help keep me on track, the happier I am! Hope things are going well for you. Last week was a good week for me so I'm hoping this week will be the same. I hope you don't mind me saying but your son is so cute!!! Awwww!
