43 years old. 60 pounds overweight. I feel like a turtle on my back most of the time. How the hell did this happen?
It is hard for me not to beat myself up in the name of taking responsibility. I am really good at beating myself up. Probably about 30 pounds worth of good. :( I am also attracted to toxic people and high stress situations. I am not great at saying no, except to myself.
So, I am back to basics and trying to focus on the whole picture, not just weight loss. A healthier me. A me that eats homemade food. I am, after all, a really good cook. A me that tries to reduce stress so I therefore reduce stress eating. A me that remembers to practice yoga because I love it and it makes me feel good. A me that recognizes that I am attractive despite being fat. I don't know this me but I am working to get to know her. Do you want to come along for the ride?
