OMG you people are fantastic!
Here I am all fat and bloated and needing, but of course not wanting, to get back OP. Any idea how hard that is? Of course you do. You've probably been there. I mean really, who wants to HAVE to watch every morsel of food that goes into their mouth? I sure don't.
When I don't, I get fatter. Kind of simplistic, but that's the way it is. I apparently don't understand moderation or control. I only know eat right or not eat right. I'm going to try really hard to learn new tricks. You're helping.
I read blogs for motivation, but I'm not sure if any of you have any idea how much the comments you give here help me. A lot. I read that someone is in the same boat as me...wow I'm not the only one? I read someone else say 'you can do it'....wow maybe I can? Today someone said I motivated them....holy cow...really???? Someone else said they loved me, flabby skin and all....God how wonderful was that?? All the 'I'm with you's', and the 'you can do it's', and the 'get your fat ass in gear's' really help. Maybe not so much the 'get your fat ass in gear'.....those just kind of piss me off most times.
So, I have been OP for 3 whole days now. Today is day 4. Wow.
One day while out shopping, they had samples of pie in the bakery. Small little cups filled with pie. I ate one and enjoyed it tremendously. I didn't buy a whole pie and eat it. I think that was amazing. I didn't say 'oh I ate the pie, I might as well eat everything else that doesn't move today'. Nope, I ate the pie, counted a point for it, enjoyed it, and kept on with my day. I've never done that before.
I so want to learn how to do that in every aspect. I want to learn that I can go out for Mexican and not have it lead to a whole day of pigging out, or worse, a whole week. I want to go for Mexican tonight. I don't want healthy Mexican, I want flautas. I want to be totally OP the rest of the day. OMG if I can just learn to do this. I have to learn to do this. I don't thrive on deprivation. I'm having enough troubles with the rest of stuff in my life, I don't need it here!
Thank you for your support, your comments, your blog love. It means more than I can express.
I can do it with your help. I believe that.
With all my heart and soul.
