I was so excited after voting yesterday morning that I had a sudden urge to get some candy to celebrate! I even took an extra 10 minutes going out of my way to work to see if a favorite store was open. In the meantime, a thought came into my head of seeing my family on the holidays. My 39-year-old, 5'8" niece weighs easily more than 250 pounds, maybe even closer to 300. No one says anything about it in front of her, but I know on the inside she is suffering. You don't have to be that big to feel miserable about the hold food has on you. I don't want to hit her over the head with my success, but I also want her to see than you can lose weight in stages, as she will see that I have done. So, I quit my search and went to school without candy. And I was fine.
By the way, I haven't ever sent her anything about SP, most because we never talk about weight loss, and I'm not sure it is my place. I have sent info to friends who discuss such issues with me, but I don't want to be presumptuous with her. It's not as if she doesn't know she has a problem.
