There are so many different degree’s of weight loss. There are people who need to lose 10 pounds, and then there are people who need to lose weight, because it is a matter of life or death. I believe everyone’s weight loss is as equally important. It is important to all of us for different reasons. I just wonder if the person who has only 10 lbs to lose has the same fears as someone who is gravely overweight. I am terrified to get back to where I was a year ago. I remember it well. I told everyone I was happy the way I was. I was healthy, I had no medical problems. I was good. All the while my little voice was like “you are dying. You are going to just drop dead one day, and your family is going to find you”. Even writing that brings tears to my eyes. It was like living a lie. I knew that what I was doing was going to kill me, but I would lie to my family that all was perfect in my world. I literally didn’t go out or do anything for more than a year. It sucked, to say the least. It’s to bad we can’t record our thoughts and feelings and jump back to a specific time in our life as a reminder to do the right thing
If this is not motivation enough to just get through today, being the healthiest I can be, then I don’t know what is. We’ll worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Today is the day. Make it count.
