And We're Back!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Alot of people don't realize what kind of self imposed exile an overweight person will put themselves in for fear of ridicule, and shame, whether its not going out in public to do the most mundane activities of every day life, making excuses to not have to eat around friends and family, or missing out on things with friends or even jobs they simply can't do because of their weight. Its a horrible and crippling thing to feel like a bystander to your own life. It;s how I've felt for a while hence the pulling away from everyone and everything i love and care about. So I've done some soul searching and I have asked myself *Do I REALLY want to live my life this way?* And ladies and gentleman what do you think my answer was? That's right *Oh hell No, I have come TOO far and survived TOO much to let ME stand in MY way* So, Today, I take charge, Today I start the work needed to not only better my life, but to start participating in Living. I an BACK Y'all And I'm bringing it HARD!! Love Ya! ~S

    This is such a familiar story that has been part of my life for so long. Do everything you can to rewrite it. Don't miss out on anything; use all your will not to be a bystander. You can't repeat your footsteps. If I could do it again, I would do all those things I missed even though my eating was out of control I know your reflecting on where you are will help you start to set weight goals for yourself, a little at a time. You can do it.
    Keep going and don't let the weight stop you from enjoying things.
    Be well.
