But I don't let that define me anymore. I don't like the word "Fat." It is limiting and stereo-typing. People look at me and see an overweight person, but so they know I used to weigh 460 pounds? No! Even doctors try -at first- to tell me I need to lose weight until I pull out my phone and show them before and after pics, then we get on the same page. It's like I'm suddenly a different person to them.
Just the same, I fight with my inner fat girl on everything every day. She wants to eat all day, every day. An emotion comes up, a food looks good, a commercial comes on, somebody mentions something tasty and she's off. She still bucks me when I want to exercise. So does my body, as I am still disabled and have chronic pain. I'm human.
So I separate out that inner fat girl from the me I want to be and live that life I want to live. Why? Because Spark Life is so much better than my old life. So when you think about why you should do this, why you should fight that inner fat girl or guy, think about how much better your life could really be. Dream BIG! Don't just think numbers on a scale.
