I'm glad you understood what I meant by the "Fat Self" in my reflection on the Step Study page of the OA Team -- it was just a literary device to show the many ways I lie to myself about what I'm doing when I'm in the food. There is only one me and that me is choosing to work the steps and stay away from my binge behavior, gratefully, one day at a time. No reason I could give myself could equal the loving force of abstinence lived through God's grace.
Your journey has taken you from where I was to where I want to go; God willing a year from today I'll be nearer to the person God created me to be.
Hey Done Girl -- Happy June!! I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
If you ever need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP eight month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received with not only weight loss but life in general. ~ Michelle 1455 days ago
