Loved watching your vlog! I too have struggled with being overweight all my life.I can remember working out to Richard Simmons in elem school! My struggle with trying to lose weight is that when I do start that journey again I always gain weight instead of lose it...even by working out,getting in my water,eating healthier and watching what I eat. I never can get past sticking to it more than a month or 2. This time will be different.I am doing EVERYTHING possible to re-train my mentality and thought process and realize that its normal at times to gain but to not give up. I am learning to tell myself that although I may not be losing the weight, I am getting flatter,my food choices are healthier,and I am making all around better choices. Hang in there!!! We will lose this weight once and for all!!! 3181 days ago
You go girl! Most of us are emotional eaters (Montel Williams is one also - told it on Dr. Oz yesterday!)
Your best bet each morning is to make a mental list of all the blessings You give to your family and friends, then thank your body for each day for allowing you to do that. You know we forget that our body is made up of a billion or more cells and each one works it's darndest to do whatever you tell it to do. When you told it to stop eating or when you ate too much, your body did exactly what you wanted it to do. You are the Queen of your body and your body is not only YOU but your "kingdom". Be the best QUEEN ever - treat your kingdom as with respect - nuture your "people"/cells with food that is fresh and without pesticides - try to wean back on sugars and caffiene, and most of all move your body every day. Limit time on the computer (if it is not work oriented) because it is sapping your energy. You know it and I know we can sit in front of this thing for hours and all we have "exerecised" is our fingers. If you play games on line - they numb your brain after a while. Instead go outside with your family and go somewhere, even if it is a walk together or revisiting an old picnic ground or lake or whatever. Or try something you used to love (mine was biking everywhere!) Just know that as Queen, you are the only one in charge of you and how you react to everything outside of you. Stop allowing others and negative thinking to take away your power. You are beautiful inside and out and you deserve to be happy and healthy. I am routing for you! 3181 days ago
