A looking glass

Thursday, February 14, 2013

If you were to see me now you would still see an obese person in the eyes of a normal weight person but I see success. I still need to lose 150 pounds. But God I have already lost 150 at least. I am a success in the fact that I have lost a whole person but I still have a ways to go. I am looking at myself as a glass half empty but also people see me as a glass half full. I still have to fight the food and watch myself at the table or buffet line. I still need to make myself get up and exercise. I have to make myself remember that there is a ways to go to my victory. I do see myself as a positive person but I also see myself in a realistic viewpoint as well. I still am considered morbidly obese. I still am high risk for every disease you can imagine. I still am diabetic with hypertension. But I am on my way to a healthier me. I wish it were faster to the health but it is not. I still see overweight in the looking glass.

    You have done an amazing job to date and I love your realistic but positive attitude.
    You are right! It IS a long road losing weight but you've shown how determined you are!!!!
    I have no doubt you'll reach your goal and on the way your health issues WILL improve.I have seen diabetics on SP able to ditch their meds as their improved diet made them that much more able to control their condition.

    You are a success right now. I am about 20-25 pounds from my goal weight and I still have to watch myself around food. Look at the success you have attained!!!!
