This is my next attempt and hopefully successfull attempt to lose weight again. I have had a weight issue since I was a child. However when I turned 18, I went on a diet, using a weight loss shake and cutting calories. I excercised morning and evening and ultimately lost 45 pounds. I was addicted to losing weight. I became bulimic. I would eat what I wanted and made it come up right after. This went on without anyone knowing. I had to lose weight, I was tired of being called fat. ...
This is my next attempt and hopefully successfull attempt to lose weight again. I have had a weight issue since I was a child. However when I turned 18, I went on a diet, using a weight loss shake and cutting calories. I excercised morning and evening and ultimately lost 45 pounds. I was addicted to losing weight. I became bulimic. I would eat what I wanted and made it come up right after. This went on without anyone knowing. I had to lose weight, I was tired of being called fat. I didn't stop until I started passing out and being sick. I weighed 89 pounds at 4'9" still I felt fat. Wanted to lose more weight. Yes I had a problem. No one knew, and they didnt find out until like a year ago when I said something about it. I want to lose weight and get back down to a healthy weight, the healthy way this time.
âYou can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.â -Unknown
I hope February is off to a healthy start for you, Spark friend! Remember to be your own Valentine! Keep your self talk positive, and love yourself for who you are now, not ten or however many pounds from now. You're worth it! Hugs, Pixie
âYou are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. It's possible to treat yourself with outrageous kindness beginning today. Compulsive eating is only the symptom; believing that you are not worth your own love is the problem. Go for the love. You will never be sorry.â -Geneen Roth

"If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!" Richard M. Devos

"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!" (Geneen Roth)
"In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently." -Tony Robbins
Keep working hard to reach your goals, Spark friend. And remember that the choices you make every day will either take you one step closer to your goals...or one step further away. Make the right choice...you know you're worth the effort, right? Hugs, Pixie
