Killing me slowly

This weekend I came to a realization; my food addiction is slowly killing me.  That thought sunk in to my soul and it left me breathless.  I had to sit on the bed and think about what I was doing to myself.  Thankfully, I do not have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or any other obesity related diseases.  That only means that I've been very lucky up to this point.  Eventually, it will catch up to me and I'm scared.  I'm scared what I'm doing to my body and my future. 

Maybe this is the realization I needed in order to get my shit together?

Hey, I love that pic of you to the left... you are so beautiful!!

As far as getting in gear, you can always try the Take Shape for Life program using medifast food. You eat every 3 hours and follow the plan and you lose 2-5 pounds a week. It's not that hard but does take commitment. I would be happy to be your coach!

Anyway... you CAN get it in gear! You can do hard things, girl!! And you are worth it!!

God bless...

This is exactly the thought I had last year when I started my diet. I got very emotional thinking about my children and how they would be affected if I continued down that path I had started.

I grew up with an obese mother and it colored every part of my childhood. I never want my children to have to worry that I won't be able to fit into a booth at a restaurant.

You just have to do it. Everyday, all day. Save your own life honey!

I had many "epiphanies" back when I was heavy - about health, about missed fashions, about not fitting in my clothes, and all the other humiliations that come with this problem. The only thing was that with me being a food addict is that I didn't actually have a "final straw." There was nothing I couldn't get used to, no humiliation that I wouldn't adapt to eventually. By some weird turn of events I ended up in a 12-step program (would have run if I'd realized what it was ahead of time) and, amazingly enough, after I went I never had to diet again. I've been abstinent for nearly 11 years, weigh 130 pounds and haven't binged or wanted to binge in all that time. Whatever your solution is, my best on a happy, healthy future!
