Nothing can cause this stubborn fat person to run faster to food in rebellion, than unsolicited advice in a demeaning way. Someone I have been in the company of for the last two weeks has insisted I quit my support group, for losing weight, since I do not follow a strict diet plan long enough to reach my goal of at least being a size medium. My only rebuttal was at least I weigh less now than I did when I started. That did not impress her at all.
I am not a garbage disposal anymore. I have become selective about not eating foods I really don't care for. I read all labels, to stay informed. I choose to indulge for any special occasion. I feel that is my choice and my business! I am faithful to always keep a food journal even if it is just a taste.
I can hardly wait to get back to exercising on a regular basis, that always kept me energized. I also need this daily posting on my blog to help keep me accountable and to stay consistant. Oh the good old days!
HINT: The downside of eating for emotional relief is that it ultimately makes you feel worse because it causes weight gain, brings on feelings of guilt, and can erode your self-esteem. Dr.P.
