Default Being Fat Sucks

Here's a great article written by a local San Diego Diva. I am sure many of you will relate!

Being an emotional eater myself, I can identify with Barbarella.
I just started Optatrim with Kaiser hospital two weeks ago. It is very hard and I never realized how much I love food. I love the way it looks, smells, feels, sounds and even its very essense. Just like Barbarella, I work very hard to keep the poundage in place. Falling into old habits is very easy. I went to a funeral friday and later that evening I became very hungry and started to eat food, not just any food, the kind I have always loved - greasy and full of calories. It has taken me until Saturday nite to rein in my destructive eating and begin to work on the emotions that I used to over- eat. I have to stay focused on the goal of becoming healthier.

Thank you so much. I could identify with so much she talked about and experienced. I can't wait until I'm in a dressing room trying on a medium. I know I'll cry that day just like I'm crying in happiness for her success.

I cried too (I am crying now that you cried too ) and I can't WAIT to feel what trying on a "regular" size feels like!!!

What a well written article.

It brought tears to my eyes. I was so happy for her when the medium top fitted.

I've been through that process before, and I'm starting over tonight. I'm going to my first WW meeting! Thank you for posting that, because it reminds me of why I need to do this.
