This time it's all about me!! Over the years I have tried losing weight and like most I have lost and gained the same pounds over and over again. I think I figured out that I was letting others influence how I felt about eating and exercise. Family and Friends would talk about getting together to do something and usually it entailed FOOD and lots of it. If I was watching what I was eating I felt like I allowed folks around me to influence me to eat poorly. Don't get me wrong, I don't blame them because I have a mind of my own but I just wasn't using it. I think I thought I was letting them down if I didn't follow their lead. Silly huh! Now I think I have realized that it's OK to go out with them and ask for my meal to be prepared healthier and ask for a box to go to pack up half of it or to say to them I really don't care to go to the buffet and then offer other suggestions. Yes, it is all about me but if the truth be known it's all about them too because maybe they will see I'm healthier and happier and they will follow suit. So it's all about THEM too!
