Did you ever wonder "why me?" I've fallen into that trap so many times it isn't funny. Why am I the fat one who can't say no to that extra serving of the yummy dessert? Why do I have to be the one who has to shop in the plus size section of the stores? What did I ever do to deserve all these obesity related issues?
Uh oh...I think I fell into my own trap!!! What did I do to deserve plus sized clothing and obesity issues, among other things? Hmmm...did I treat myself to way too many of those desserts because I was "good" all week and I deserved a treat? Does it have anything to do with all those years when I sat on my fanny way too many times and thought I'd get some really good exercise later? Or, might it have been all those evenings when I ate myself into oblivion because I'd had a rough day at work or a serious family problem to solve? And, in the process of doing all these things, might it be why I developed an addiction to certain kinds of foods?
So really, in retrospect, I have to ask why not me? What is so special about me that I would or should be any different from others who have similar issues? Why should it be any easier for me to conquer these challenges? Isn't there a saying somewhere that what doesn't kill you will make you stronger? I'm thinking that I, along with all my very Special Spark Sisters and Friends, must be about the strongest people on the planet. We are forging ahead...not always quickly, not always efficiently, but we're doing it, aren't we? One way or another, we're doing it!! And that, my friends, is all I can ask for today!!
Wishing the very best of "me" days for each of you!!
