I Want This
Sunday, September 08, 2013
It's very difficult to stay focused on my mission, especially since one of my favorite things to do is eat very unhealthy foods and large, large portions. I medicate with food, I celebrate with food, I mourn with food. I have to reel myself in and remember how much MORE I want to lose weight and be healthy. People are right when they say, "your weight gain didn't happen overnight, so weight loss isn't going to happen overnight either." But if I could just see progress every day and find something else to focus on besides food, particularly at those moments when I crave pizza or ice cream or any number of other "food meds," I'd be less likely to fall into feeling defeated. I have the information. I know what made me this way and I know what it'll take to get where I need to be. I just have to keep reminding myself how much I want this.
