Ignoring The Obvious

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Went to get my hair done this morning. I'm handed a robe which I put on but can't button -too small. Months ago this would have embarrassed me terribly. I think my defense mechanism is to ignore things like this or joke about it.

It happened this week too while walking around a building with two long legged healthy men. I couldn't keep up with them. In the past I would have been mortified to the point I would probably avoid getting into a situation like that again. This time I made light of it by saying something about my knees being bad. Yeah, they're bad because I'm so fat.

This sounds like defeatist thinking but it's not. I've been eating within my caloric daily allowance since 1/1/12. I can tell by my clothes I'm losing weight.

Maybe I've become used to being fat.

  Great attitude.
Keep at it, and soon you'll be leaving those men in the dirt!

    Your self confidence is growing and you are making progress as evident by your clothes being looser!

    I can understand that. I have become used to being fat ~ and when I was younger, I would have died before I'd have let myself get like this. emoticon I. also, joke about it before someone else does. emoticon BUT, I can't let it get to me and I HAVE TO have faith that SP will work for me and things will get better. I'm sure you feel the same way. :) emoticon It is a lot easier when we don't have to do it alone. I hope its ok for me to add you to my friend list. emoticon

  I think your are developing self confidence. You are putting forth the effort to get healthy. For that you should be proud. Eating right and exercise can be empowering!
