I read a blog about taking control for your own weight loss and doing instead of saying poor me and that led me to write this answer.
I have also done the poor me attitude before so I am one of those...but I do take responsibility.
I do feel down sometimes when the scale does not move but I know why....my fault entirely.
I used to blame my gram for the giant meals and still do as a kid but I grew up and it is my fault now. It is not up to the government to set portion control for our kids..It is up to the parents. I have seen many overweight kids in the stores that throw a fit and their parents shove more candy at them. why can't people see that we are raising the next generation to be even more unhealthy than we are? Portion control in a restaurant has gone crazy because people demand it! I don't think all comments are made from the truth...a lot of times I console the person just because I don't want to hurt their feelings and I am sure a lot of my comments are for the same reason. The truth will set you free but it will also make you feel bad. I would hope that people are honest with me as it would hurt at first but then maybe sink in. I always say that words don't break bones but it can break hearts. So I guess what I would want would be suggestions to help me along the way without harsh words. The person who wrote the blog is a wonderful person and just had enough and I can't blame her. I blow up at myself for writing and sometimes not doing. I love your blogs and your attitude...you know who you are LOL.
It is the children that we need to be role models for and can't tell them not to eat unhealthy food if we do it ourselves. So it takes work and control..it takes finding out why we became this way,,,is it unhappiness, grief, habit...what is it....maybe we should look deeper. So to myself I say.
