It is great to see new people joining us!
I think with your attitude you will acheave your goals! That is fantastic that your parents are on WW. I bet that helps.
I am not so sure if it matters if you need to lose 100 lbs or 50. It is hard and takes lots of support no matter what. I need to lose another 40 lbs and whatever anyone here needs to lose I am there to support them! I understand the situations. My problem is I love food. I was reading in Self
magazine, the Jan. 2005 issue, about a lady Holly Teicholtz. The articule was titled "Appetite for Life". Very inspiring. She talks about how she loves food. And if she has certain food around she would eat it until it was gone. A whole pint of ice cream or entire bag of oreos. Sounds a lot like me
. She says even though she has lost 100 lbs it is still hard and she can't see how people can eat just one oreo or a small bowl of the ice cream and stop. I know that feeling!
It is something akin to being an alcoholic I think. Since I don't drink much alcohol I don't really know for sure, but it seems to be like with any addiction. Our only problem is that we must still eat
. Not like smoking where you just don't have them around or alchol where you just don't do it. I know I am over simplifiying but you get what I mean.
Hey, I just realized I am rambling.
Anyway, it is a wonderful articule. Made me realize I am not alone in how I feel about food.
Did I tell you my resolution? To have a more possitive attitude! I figure that will go to all facits (sorry for the spelling) of my life! Weight, exercise, relationships, work and self! God has truly blessed me and I am going to work on remembering that!
Anyway, I didn't really mean to rambel. If you get a chance read the articule and let me know what you think. You could probably check it out on Self.com
Ok, well, I will try to be back later with a shorter post!
Have a wonderful day!
