I've noticed that by doing this diet I have become more in tune with not only my physical needs, but emotionally as well.

I figured it would not just be a physical road, and in fact I believe weight loss is a bit more mental than physical! I just was not prepared for all of the self reflection I've been doing lately. I've discovered some things about myself, some good, some not so good, but all of it is a part of me.

I have attached names to some of my problems, which is always helpful in finding out how to take care of them. One day I will have health insurance and might actually be able to talk to a doctor about certain things. Maybe talk to a therapist about others!

Each new day gives me new challenges and new things to work on. I hope in the end I'll be able to say it all made me stronger.

    As a beginner here, I'm glad for your comments. It's nice to know from someone who's being so successful just how mental this journey is going to be.

You look GREAT! Way to go on reaching those goals! Fun to see the metamorphosis even just in your face in your photos. I look forward to achieving some of this myself.

Thanks for the welcome!

    I agree with you completely it really makes you think about wanting to be healthy not only physically but mentally as well. I know I'm in the same boat as you because it really made me think about how I got this way in the first place and things in my past that lead me this direction.

    You will come out of this journey a much healthier person- not only physically... but mentally too. It takes a very strong person to complete this journey and I know you will be able to do it~!

    I agree with Shirley. It's always possible to change the way you look, but if you don't change the way you think, you'll never be completely happy. That's why it's so important to like your inner self before changing the outer self. Amber, you are a beautiful person from what I can tell. You just have to believe it!!!

    Yes, I believe you are right about it not only being physical but mental as well. I too, find my self reflecting on my life more than ever. I think the clue to losing weight is to change our eating habits and our way of looking at life. Shirley
