If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Great WI today! I'm down 1.4, which considering TOM, is excellent!!

I'm going over to Crystal's today for brunch and invitation stuff. The gathering of friends over healthy good food I'm excited about. The other stuff... not so much. But then, I'm being a good friend and not complaining nearly as loud as I want to. Fortunately, all my friends are aware of my hate on for this kind of shit and put up with my shenanigans. Thank god for them, huh?

I'm taking Doug and Logan for haircuts at 3:30. While they are getting done I'll pop into the grocery store. Great Clips is having their 7.99 sale so I'm sure it will be nuts.

I feel like I had a great week, if you minus the total bitchyfest on Thursday. The good news is about that day that I listened when my body told me it was tired.

I'm reading two mags right now. Women's Fitness and Oxygen's special edition of Fat Loss. Great tips in there. The only thing I find frustrating is that in the Fat Loss mag there are a TON of ads for weight loss pills. I get the whole advertising makes the world go round thing, but geez. "Do it right" "Take a pill". They don't match up!

I am here to answer any questions my friends might have. I will give advice if I know what I'm talking about. I will tell you if I am talking out of my ass, or making an educated guess. I use google TONS to learn and educate myself. But I don't know everything, and I am new at this too. I'm in a daily struggle of my own journey, and yes, I'm successful, but it's hard work. I'm just like everyone else, and not a guru by any means.

I hope noone takes that the wrong way. I WANT to help, and I WANT to coach, and I WANT the questions, and I WANT to work together. I DON"T want your responsibility, and I DON"T WANT your blame if you aren't doing the right things and making the right choices.

Make sense? I guess my episode with the one person has really jaded me, and I'm scared to lose more friends because I refuse to be anyones reason or excuse.

Each of us has our own journey, with our own peaks and valleys. We coach and encourage each other but ultimately are completely responsible for ourselves and our own choices. This journey to healthy is based on common sense. That's it! Common sense says that if it is processed, it probably isn't good for you. Now you and I know that we can justify till the cows come home, but it is what is is and it isn't what it isn't. My justify days are over (for the most part) and I've learned to be honest with myself before I put it in my mouth.

You can do it, too. Just be honest. And shit, if you really want that Timbit, be fucking honest about it. Conciously think before you put it in "I am choosing to put this in my mouth and I am the only one who will suffer the consequences, but it's worth it to me right now". And decide... is it? Sometimes it isn't, but sometimes it is, and that's okay. Just know that calories in and calories out is the name of the game. If you put the extra in, you need to work the extra off THAT DAY. Common sense.

Educate yourself.

Holy Fuck. What the fuck was all that, huh? Maybe I have issues? LOLOLOL

You just keep doing what you're doing honey, leading by example.

You know the life of an addict...its easier to blame someone else or some circumstance in life.

Those who truly want the positive will stick by you, those who don't will troddle along their destructive path.

If that's what they choose, then you and I both know that there's nothing that can save them.

Your right, it is addictive behaviour. I momentarily forgot that.
