You said it best "eat normally". I too am obsessed with food and my next meal. Why are we obsessed and then I have friends that say they forgot to eat? What do you think causes this obsession? Anyone??
Seeing you guys with such positivity gives me great strength! I'm fortunate not to have any health problems because of my weight but for me, my issue with eating is more spiritual. It's not good for me to have such a lack of self-discipline in this area of my life. Like y'all, I am trying to make this a way of life and not a diet. I want to be like so many other people who just eat "normally" and are not obsessed with every meal and food in general.
We are more than conquerors and can do all things through Christ Jesus!
i can relate with you on the "DIET" thing. When I think of the word diet,I think of starvation! That's what I am doing different this time. I am not going to deprive myself of the things that I love.Every other time I have tried to lose weight I become very angry because I felt as though I couldn't have anything. This time I started out with portion control,then healthy foods and I added some exercise in with it. I have been with Sparkpeople for a little over 2 months and the weight is slowly coming off. I have learned to change my eating habits slowly instead of trying to quit "Cold Turkey".It may take me longer to lose my weight,but at least I won't be a miserable person while doing it. Keep up the good work and the weight will come off!!! Paula

I am also new to Spark people. I don't think of my new beginning as a DIET. It is a way of life. A new way of life. I love my life, but not the way I look and feel. I'm thinking like a butterfly. I'm in my coccoon and when I emerge out of it I will be a beautiful butterfly. I have faith in myself and in my heart that I can. Even though most of us have a ways to go, we are ALL beautiful people. LUV YA'll
I live my life one day at a time. I live life to the fullest. I trust in the Lord, without him, nothing is possible. With Him, EVERYTHING is possible.
