November Update

Well, it's been approximately four weeks since I finished my diet, and I am happy to report that the weight has stayed off, and I've stayed steady.  The way I approach eating is definitely different, but at Thanksgiving I was able to look at my most favourite dish - the stuffing, and after having eaten enough say to myself, you can have more later. That is HUGE for me.

It's silly that we let the way we look hold us back from things, but I can honestly say I feel healthier, I'm not tired as easily, I don't feel like everyone is looking at me, and I don't judge myself.  I've started KEEPING pictures that people take of me, instead of immediately rejecting them.  Now, it still has to be me accepting myself however I am, but the boost of losing the weight and keeping it off makes it easier to appreciate ME. It's a journey, I keep telling myself that, but the journey is what's important. It's ok to like yourself. It really is.
