Amazing article on perception after weight loss

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Just read this.

I think it's pretty amazing! About a woman who lost 180lbs after surgery and her struggles with the world not being "perfect" because she's skinny now.

    I read that article today also. A lot of people think that, as well as moving will make everything great.

    A lot of people have this problem and many of them gain the weight back. The weight often serves a purpose.

    What an excellent article - thanks so much for posting it!

A hard but true lesson to learn. I became thin in my early 20's, and my life didn't get appreciably better. The people who didn't like me when I was fat still didn't like me. The people who loved me when I was fat still loved me.

I think that's one of the reasons that I'm so dead set against calling this health and wellness and (ESPECIALLY) weight loss effort a "journey". It has a connotation of a self-contained "episode" in your life when you FINALLY (or "once and for all!") get healthy and beautiful and happy. Not so. Life is the journey.

    I think she seems to have been pretty depressed all along. Life is rarely ever perfect, but it is hardly ever totally miserable either.
