Beating my Own Monsters

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

I've been asking myself , why do I still need Sp?
I am almost sure my weight isn't going down anymore but perhaps luckily so.
Firts of all, I need to be certain I am on the right track.
I am exercising, keeping within my cal limits (more or less) and at this phase of my jouurney I am trying to go back to normal life...I mean, I go shopping for food, to the restaurant and everywhere and I'm not skipping social occasions for food related problems.
It's tricky but I avoid fatty food, reckon the amount of carbs, proteoins & so on and sometimes have food I have avoided in the past, but only in very limited quanitities.
Idefinitely also need SP as it gives me the certainty I will not run out of the program I want to follow, that I will continue to exercise and I will not allow my weight to go up.
This is so important as maintaining can sometimes be harder than losing....and, in case my last 5 kilos more wanted to go, they're welcome.
In all cases, I am beating my own monsters, my fear of being overweight and not able to wear my clothes anymore,,,and do on.
It all belongs to my past.

    SP to me is so much more than a weight loss tool - it helps me figure out why I'm at whatever point I am in my life because how I treat my health reflects where I am in life in general. And the support helps as well! emoticon

    I think all of us who are on here need SP. What brought us here in the first place? No matter successful you are on this journey, the struggle is never really over. We all have our own monsters to beat and I think this site is a good place to do that. I def. understand your fear about gaining the weight back. I am sure most of us feel that way. If has even happened to some of us, but we are still here fighting.

    It's great that you are looking to the future and wanting the rest to remain in your past. I bet maintaining isn't easy, but you are doing an awesome job so far. :)

    And you have found a group of friends who think you are an amazing inspiration yo us all. We support each other and now it is your turn to be the teacher to those of us still on the journey. You are an important role model.

    It's also about the support - all the people who understand the struggle, who have been there, who keep with their program. That's part of why we stay here.
