I have lost my cred. I have found of late that I have lost all credibility now that I have lost 100+ lbs. When asked what did I do to lose the weight; I am greeted with 'yeah right' looks. I didn't take anything except determination and hard work! Really! It's all been being aware of my diet and exercise. Sigh. When I give a suggestion for a food swap, people look at me with, 'like you'd ever understand' looks. Listen, I still WANT to have that coffee cake when I pick up my Starbucks drip w non fat. Yes, I still go out to eat. I even eat chocolate! I just have an easier time of it because these choices are habits now after 4 years of hard work. Sigh. When some of my friends see/hear that I run now they give me 'as if I can even keep up with you walking!' looks. Sister! I could barely walk to my daughter's school without collapsing in a wheezing heap last year! It isn't natural for me. It isn't easy still. I want to drive some days. Some mornings I want to chuck my running shoes out the door! I know though, how far I've come. I like to push myself to see how much further I can go. You CAN do this too! Sigh. Don't give up on me. I still need your support. Don't think I'm done because I will still be faced with the same choices you are faced with every single day. I want to help and share with you. I'm still working things out... I'll tell you when I get 'there'.
