I'm no longer who I was, but I still have a nagging feeling sometimes that makes me want to eat when I'm not hungry, when I'm full, when I'm emotional, just when... That nagging is my "inner fat girl" trying to surface again. Don't get me wrong. I am still a fat girl and yes, she (the inner voice) will always be a part of me, part of who I was, but not part of who I am now. That's what is important. When you take on a new lifestyle, you have to think of yourself as a new creation, not the old one.

You have to start adding possibilities into your life and looking for things you can do, rather than concentrating on what you can't. You should look for things in a healthy lifestyle that you like and love and embrace those things, because a lifestyle should fit you... You should not have to fit a lifestyle.

So if you have an "inner fat voice" telling you unhealthy things to do, put some faith in yourself. You can stumble and you can fall, but you are still a new being in fitness and there is no going back to the old life. Spark Life is so much better. Just change slowly so that your "inner fat person" won't notice and it makes it much easier. At least it did for me.

    Great blog and so true. I find that making slow changes kind of quiets down the fat girl. It's best to keep her in the dark. LOL

    Are you emoticon emoticon Thanks for Sharing. It's great when someone can put this into words like you have. I sometimes find myself all alone with that "other" side of me. We argue a lot and I triumph as often as possible.

    I think we all have that instinct to eat, even when we don't 'need' it. It's part of being human, and probably goes back to a time of survival thing, and not something to feel guilt or shame about. The fact that we can recognize in that moment that we don't need to eat is what's important. emoticon

    You should be so proud of yourself for losing the wt and for recognizing what you need to change in yourself. It's not always easy to do that but you did!
