In pursuit of staying power
Friday, August 21, 2015
It took 15 long years to lose 100 pounds and it will take the rest of my life to keep it off permanently. But that is a challenge I welcome now, instead of fear! For the first time ever, I think maintaining my weight loss is possible, because for the first time ever, I'm pursuing a healthy way of life, and not just a diet. I love to watch health and weight loss documentaries, and am learning all I can about nutrition. For the first time, my appetite is decreasing naturally as I become smaller, and that's how it should be! I no longer have the mentality that causes me to shovel in all the goodies I can today, because tomorrow I will be starting over . I don't have do-overs anymore, I have continuances. Every day is part of my life and no day is excluded or forgotten because I ate too much. I've been working on this all of my life, and it took me all these decades to finally get a handle on it. But now that I finally got it, I 'm not letting go!
