Recently I was asked, "is maintaining harder than losing the weight?"
The following is my reply:
I don't want to scare you, so I will try to say this the right way.
It's all a battle - but remember always, YOU are worth the effort.
I am almost 63 and never knew until the last year or so that thin people struggle all their lives to keep their weight. I know because I started asking every thin person I have contact with. Then I apologize to them because I never knew. I was never thin enough to have their struggle - just maintaining my overweightness was hard enough.
Some days it just doesn't feel worth the battle so I let go and indulge myself. When I get to heaven and Our Lord asks me, I'm going to tell Him that Chocolate was wonderful, lima beans not so much. Cake & Cookies YES. Lima beans & onions I could do without, lol.
Have you ever seen a thin person covet your dessert? I actually feel sorry for them - at least I know what it tastes like and whether or not it was worth the calories! If I die tomorrow, I am so thankful that I took advantage of what I could enjoy today!
I feel like Scarlett O'Hara - I'll deal with it tomorrow, lol.
