You know that kiddie song "I'm going on a lion hunt. (I'm going on a lion hunt.) I'm not scared.(I'm not scared.)"...It's going through my mind as I contemplate going foward with my new plans for loosing weight. I say I'm not scared, but I am...I don't know why. Either fear of failure or fear of accomplishment.
I had an app. with a Health Educator yesterday, and it went well. I felt like I had many things to talk about with her because I have Sparkpeople to inform me. I told her about the website, and how it is educating me about not going on fad diets, portion distortion, how to track food, and excercise, and all the other things at my fingertips. I told her that my main problem was the portion control, and she gave me a special measuring cup for my use. I told her also that my eating was just out of control. She acknowledged that it is difficult. She said she used to weight 380 lbs...I felt like I was talking to the perfect motivator for me...
She totally ripped down the first thoughts I had, as I followed her to her office. I was thinking "Wow, this lady, who looks like she weighs more than me, is going to give me advice? Ironic." As soon as she told me what she used to weigh, I felt guilty for that thought, but I also felt an immediate connection with her. I look foward to my next visit with her March 1st, and celebrate a 5 pound loss, hopefully!
