I am taking control not restricting myself, this will give me the freedom I crave.
Food is not the enemy nor is it my friend, it will not provide comfort, advice or support, it will not love me, it will never be proud of me or approve of my choices. It is just fuel for me to live my life and I need to start seeing it as that! I have a lifetime of memories and I don't want to sit of the sidelines longing to join it but feeling too unfit, too big, too embarrassed and so on.
This needs to happen now and no one but me is going to make it happen. I am still young and I don't want to get to the point of health problems or it starting to affect my children's lives. I don't want my kids to remember a time when I was obese. There is is nothing holding me back but me so... Enough talk bring on the action!
