This is just for me. I have been so depressed lately I just wanted to end it. I told my husband, "I was tired of being fat" I was miserable! This past holiday has just about killed me, with all the food. I was crying and talking to him and told him I was sick of being sick and I stopped sugar and fast foods. On my journey, I ran across OA, Overeaters Annoymous. Boy, this has changed my life. I like the support and spirtual way of loosing my weight.
I have lost 11lbs in 2 weeks, just from staying away from the above. I have never felt better! OMG! what a difference no sugar is. I feel so much better, joints not hurting as bad, blotting in face and belly gone way down. My face is what looks thinner for now. I mediate every morning and read my Bible.
At my first mtg I started crying and finally understood the damage I've done to myself with the depression of overeating. I said "this is where I'm suppose to be" in the mtg and now I believe it more than ever.
I don't miss the sweets or junk food at all. I give my body what it naturally needs meats, fruits, vegetables, grain and dairy, do the portion size and no eating between meals,....well maybe have an apple or banana. And I drink lots of water.
And all of this without exercise. But, I do plan on including that after awhile.
