Kassie, You are thinking the right way about why or how you would be big even if you are taking meds for your problems. Enjoy the weight lost and have FAITH in yourself that you are going to address your problem of overweight. you were handling it even when you didn't know your problem. Like i said have faith in yourself. You were really going through a rough time while you did not lose weight. It will be a piece of cake (forget Cake) . LOL). Think of this the way we all are suppose to think it is a healthy lifestyle. We need to eat correctly to prolong our life. My husband is not over weight and looks and act so healthy, but he just found out that he in in danger of a stoke or heart attack. He did not know it. He has high blood pressure and high cholesterol. So, these people that are taking to you may be in bad shape and don't even know it. My husband told me all the time it was all in my head. That I would be skinny if I really wanted to be. Now he sees that your head can tell you that you are healthy and you could be gone in the same minute. Thanks so much for vbloging. It has reminded me see that I don't need to feel like I am dieting . that i need to live life healthy to not only add years to my life but to add life to my years.
Have a Merry Christmas !! I care for you so much and I feel your confusion over all of this. You are going to pull that "Old kassie", out of you and use all the things you have learned to live a great healthy life. I am going to do the same. We will be there for each other. Hugs, Judy
I totally relate to what you are saying in terms of "yay I lost 50 pounds, but I'm still the fat girl", that is exactly how I feel. I feel a lot better and people will tell me how great I look, but I only look "great" in comparison to my old self, I don't look great in general so it's hard.
I am sorry you have to deal with so much criticism, you are a tough cookie because I would not be able to handle it!! Even one of the comments on your last blog rubbed ME the wrong way and it has nothing to do with me. ICK!!!
And I love the guest appearance from the little cutie!!
I hope you feel 100% soon!
