Yep, that just about sums it up, and I don’t want to die, so I quit. No more Diets, no more thinking about diets, no more caring about diets. No more. Period.
When I had to give up my huge laundry list of foods because of allergies, I lost 50 pounds. That was the easiest 50 pounds that I’ve ever lost, but apparently that ship has sailed. I’m going to actually have to “do” something to keep the process going. Bummer. Not sure exactly how I’ll do it, but I do know what I won’t be doing.
No more diet pills, diet drinks, “diets”, and or funky weight loss fads or workout gear. Unless of course, I could get one of these because that just looks like fun.
I’ve decided to just let go of all of that nonsense and start caring more about MYSELF. I know that I need to lose weight to be healthy and feel better, so that’s what I’m going to focus on. It’s no longer about what I look like or what people think about me or say. My story needs to be about me and no one else.
I’m just going to have to finally accept that losing one pound a week for the next year is better than losing no pounds at all. I’ve always had a hard time with looking far into the future and being okay with how long my weight loss process will take. I want results now, and anything less than that feels like a waste of time and energy. I know how stupid that sounds, but when it comes to this particular issue, my head is a mess.
So today marks the beginning of “my story”. I know the difference between good food and bad food. I know that I need to drink more water than anything else. I know that I need to take vitamins. I know that food does not need to control me. For now, that is what I’m going to work on …. doing what I know. And that is good enough.
