Finding my voice!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Funny how I knew this journey was going to different for the first time in my life. I was right. Today have been looking back at my journal entries over the last 5 days. I have never fault so powerful. When you reach a certain point in weight gain no matter what that number is for you because it is different for us all, there is a point when you no longer say what you want. You try to become either agreeable or silent. What you think not only doesn't matter to the outside world but it becomes insignificant to you. We think that if we are nice and agreeable no-one will notice our weight. The problem is that even if they mention to us they see and discuss it among theirselves. This is the point where we close down and often close off to others. Today we all have an opportunity to find our voice to say what we won't and like. The first step in finding your voice was making a decision to acknowledge that we exist and have desires. Also finding help for our problem. We can do this together. I need your help and hope that you will continue to help me along this journey. emoticon

    My fat is not a silent part of me. I never wanted to draw any unwanted attention to myself for fear of ridicule. I have always received ridicule just by being in the same place as an ugly acting person. First it started off in childhood and then it continued all the way into my adulthood. I'm a senior citizen now and it still continues.

    Ah ha- the difference is - now I have a voice. And I use it! How dare someone be so ridiculous as to insult and hurt my feelings. What is wrong with them that they need to do that to someone. They have not walked in my shoes and have never known how I have suffered behind my disease. Which by the way clears a pathway for other diseases.

    Not giving up but always looking for answers, which by the way have always been in my head-has me now going in the right direction and by the way responding to your blog.

    Thank you for your blog-as you can see - you are not silent any longer. emoticon

    Being silenced is terrible. We don't have to be invisible to exist! We are Amazons! Big women with big feelings and big hearts and big laughter, and we should celebrate who we are!

    Welcome to SP! As you progress on this incredible journey that you are just beginning to undertake, you will see just how incredible this community of supportive strangers can be. The site can be an overwhelming one, but just keep in mind, this is a process, and being such, taking it one small step at a time, ensures lasting success.

    You are indeed correct that this time is different. And, one of the key elements, I feel, is the SP community. The diet, the exercise, all the other accoutrements of weight loss, can be found on other popular web sites as well.

    Join groups, if you haven't already, and take on a fall challenge. It will keep you motivated, and moving forward.

    Just know that together emoticon



    All the best as you continue on your journey to better health,
