Default Where I'm Suppose to be

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.

Take Care,

That sounds like a great start to your journey! Taking this one step at a time. Opening your Bible every morning is definately going to help! Good luck. Jelly

You are off to an incredible start!!! This is a very emotional journey you're embarking on. Hang on. It's a wonderful, wonderful ride.

As far as the exercise goes, Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone is a great at home walking series of DVD's that are VERY doable. You will be amazed at what adding in exercise can do for you.

Good luck to you. You really sound like you're ready. I'm so happy for you.

Congrats! Be VERY proud of yourself! If you start feeling sad at anytime, try to remember this feeling of pride and accomplishment! I had a rough time with myself, and on good days I wrote myself happy notes that I could read during the bad days. It kept me going when I needed it most.

You are fantastic & the forum is here to support you! You deserve it! Have an awesome day!

Thanks everybody for all the support! Your the greatest. I can't imagine myself going back to cakes, pastries and pies. I remember how bad I felt three weeks ago and how terrifc I feel now.
