I have learned a few things this past year.
# 1. Don't be in a hurry. 2 lbs per week is a lot of weight to be losing and will still add up to 100 lbs in a year.
# 2. Don't be hungry! Never allow yourself to become hungry. Hunger will lead to an uncontrollable binge every time!
# 3. Believe in yourself.
# 4. Be honest with yourself. Hold yourself accountable. No one else matters but if you lie to yourself you will have problems.
# 5. Eat what you need to eat to not be hungry. If the SP range leaves you hungry, eat more. Eat 2000 calories daily. Eat 2500 calories if you need them. If we had all eaten just 2000 calories per day we wouldn't be in this mess to begin with. So you will still lose weight, just a little more slowly. Slow weight loss is not a bad thing.
# 6. Love yourself for who you are. Not for your outer shell but for your inner beauty. And let your inner beauty show to the world. Smile. Smile a lot. Smile at everyone. If someone says something hurtful, smile and wish him or her a pleasant day. You will feel better for it.
Be true to yourself. You are worthy. You are worthy of being loved and respected.
Love you for who you are,
