I will try to avoid doing that girl thing of never being satisfied with my weight, however I will continue to set new goals for myself as I accomplish them because I now see that complacency will make you and keep you fat. Based on my bathroom scale this morning, I have lost a total of 93lbs since January 2011. This picture was taken on May 24, 2013 and I was happy that Santa agreed to take a picture with me on his day off.
I will admit that I’m proud of this accomplishment and although it has become cliche, especially for athletes, I absolutely acknowledge that I could not have done this without God. Specifically, I know that I am not only an emotional eater, for too long I turned to food for comfort. That resulted in me weighing more than 250 lbs nearly one year after having twins (I weighed less DURING the pregnancy). I ate, and ate, and ate because I was miserable and food gave me a temporary fix. I have learned that God is my permanent fix and while I will continue this new, healthy lifestyle, it comes with problems.
I call these problems “Skinny People Problems”
Like any good list, I will number these in order of their problematic nature and of course we will countdown because who doesn’t like a little delayed gratification.
