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.
