Many times you have told me that I inspired you but what you should know is that every time you write a comment, you make me feel that I am doing something good. You make me feel like I am worth it. I am an emotional eater and this week has been hard on me. I have made some mistakes and I am trying to fix it.
I want you to know that you all are keeping me going. for not letting me give up. I don't think I would but I have come close so many times. Writing blogs and giving you all a pep talk is doing double duty...it is helping me too. Many people say I can't blog.... I wouldn't know what to say. Just say what's in your heart. Put down on paper what you would say to help a friend. By helping another you help yourself too. You make a connection with them and come to know them as friends, who are making suggestions, cheering you on, helping you through the tough times.
I can't say this enough, but losing weight, is maybe, one of the toughest fights of your life. It is a battle to get healthier and freeing yourself from the fat that suffocates your body, squeezing the life out of your body, your self esteem, your very happiness.
so never give up, no matter how many times you have to start over and never be ashamed to admit your mistake. Getting it out makes you feel so much better than holding it in and pretending that everything is hunky dory...is there ever a time like that??
No matter how many times you fall, pick yourself up and start again.
never be afraid to take that step again.
Just be you and try to change what you don't like.
