I dont care about WHY you dont feel like it.
I dont care about your rationalizations
I dont care about your excuses.
I dont care why you think you can be crappy to people
I dont care if it's hard for you. Its hard for all of us
I dont care if you had cake last night. Today is a new day.
I dont care if you are weak, tired, bored, angry or hurt. That is not an excuse to punish yourself with food.
I dont care if you can't run. You can walk, right?Cant walk? Can you lift some light weight? Can you read an article? Can you make a food plan?
I dont care if you arent gonna make that goal you set for yourself. What are you gonna do? QUIT?? Hell, no. Move the line and keep going.
I dont care if I havent talked to you for awhile. I still care about you and you mean alot to me.
I dont care how far away you are. I am still just right here.
I dont care if we have never met face to face. You are my friend and I love you.
I dont care if I gained a few pounds last week. I had fun, it was worth it and I am going to continue living my life and losing weight.
I dont care if you think I look good. I care if I FEEL good.
I dont care what we have for dinner if you are cooking. I will make it work.
I dont care where we go, as long as we go.
I dont care about low carb/weight watchers/ jenny craig etc. I care about eating real food that tastes good.
I dont care how much you have to lose, how long it takes you, how far you have to go.
I care about US, that WE are doing this for ourselves, that WE will keep going every day and that WE will get there. Because WE set out to do something good for us and WE will get there. One step, every day. Thats it.

It takes me every morning getting up and choosing a decent meal (unlike the 800 calorie buffet breakfast while I was away last weekend). Then a decent lunch. Then a decent, reasonable dinner.
It takes me going for a walk 5 days a week with my hubby and my dog.
It takes me making a fresh fruit salad every 3 or 4 days so I will eat fruit instead of cookies.
It takes the support of friends and family. By that I mean, people checking in on me with love and afffection, concern and caring and NOT judgement, doubt or sabotage.
It takes me wanting it. Every single day. Every minute, every meal, every snack, every night.
It has taken a year to get down 65 pounds. It will take another year (or 2) to lose the rest.
It takes knowing I will never be done and that this is my life now. I like it.
It takes acceptance that this is my life and that there is room for cake (and breakfast buffets!) sometimes but not all the time.
It takes a positive attitude and an open mind.
It takes understanding that this is FOR ME, not a punishment, not a sacrifice. It is the best thing I could ever do for myself and the people I love.
It takes alot but in return, I GET alot.
I get to live a longer and fuller life.
I get positive attention instead of stares becuase I am huge.
I get quality time with my hubby and dog that I never would have had before. I treasure that.
I get adventure.
I get delicious healthy food
I get happier alot more often
I get new friends. As many as I could possibly want or need.
I get an outlet for my feelings, emotions, tantrums and creativity.
I get a good night sleep because I am taking care of my body.
I get to really live instead of just exist.
I get a happy heart.
I get to help people, encourage people and spread the spark.
D. All of the above.
The answer is D. You win.
