I'm on my third trip through weight watchers. I lost 75lbs the first time, and 50 the second. Unbelievably, I gained back 80 this time! And I have to lose all that weight, AGAIN.
What's completely rediculous is that I don't take action at 2lbs, or 5lbs, but I wait until I'm gigantic and can't stand myself before I do something about it. People who truly love themselves do not do this!!!
This time, I'm playing for keeps! This time, I'm here to become a completely different person. Someone who exercises self-control, moderation, and most importantly, has a decent level of SELF RESPECT!
I am going to stop feeling sorry for myself
, stop stuffing my face to stuff my feelings
, say what I think/feel/believe
and insist that others respect me!
No woman accidentally weighs over 200lbs. They get that way by allowing everyone to take advantage of them without speaking up for themselves. They get that way by allowing others to dictate to them what they should think, how they should feel, etc. They get that way by being polite to the point of being a doormat. Then, they take comfort in food to soothe the hurt of allowing themselves to be treated like a NOTHING!
Believe me, if they were a little "meaner" about setting and defending their personal boundaries
, they would have NO PROBLEM defending the boundaries of their weight/eating habits/exercise, etc. It's all about the BOUNDARIES!
