Thank you to the SparkBuddy that thought me vain!!
You thought it was vanity because I am worried about 7 pounds when you need to lose 50+ yourself.
Really - Thank YOU!!
As I responded to you my words reverberated in my head, "if I am not vigilant, 7 can turn into the entire 90+ pounds" regained.
No, we are not SparkFriends - but really, you are more my buddy for slapping me upside my head mentally! As I walked with Cathy this morning, I had my AHA! moment and I realized that truer words were never spoken!!
No, it is not vanity - it is survival. No, I was not upset with the person - I recognized it for what it is - a call for help from a person close to giving up.
Yes, I really did thank her! Her comment was from the heart, filled with the anguish of the obese, anguish I knew all too well.
I also look forward to celebrating when she gets back on track and reaches her goals!
Vanity? No. Guilt? Possibly. Human? Definitely!!
Y'all have a Sparkling day today! I know my day is going to Sparkle!
I can't describe how wonderful it feels to be back in control!
Telling myself, "NO" when I want to nosh! WooHoo indeed!!
