I recently was walking with friends and discussed how I have always been propelled by the naysayers and have accomplished great things in my life after someone said I couldn't. I soon will be graduating with an advanced college degree and am looking at a doctoral program, yet my weight remains an issue. Why is that? I certainly have had those same naysayers in my life that have scorned me for my weight. Why can't I take that same "put it in my pocket and move forward" philosophy and make great things happen in that area? Is it fear? Maybe. Maybe I am afraid to fail, but there was always that fear involved in other aspects of my life and it didn't stop me. Why with my weight?
I am at a point in with my weight that I am just completely frustrated. I have been working out again, although not like I was last year when I lost 25 lbs., yet I struggle to get pants on. That can really do damage to your mind. I should be afraid to get up and get dressed. THIS should be enough!
