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.

Thanksgiving Dinner

There's lots of talk around the blogs this week about the frenzy of Thanksgiving and the fear of the meal itself.

Me, not so worried. I've been on this journey long enough to know that I cannot do permanent damage, so I'm going to enjoy my dinner, opt for healthier portions of all the yumminess I love, and continue on my life afterwards, with no stress!

I know that one meal (at which I know I will overindulge) will not break my resolve to be a healthier person. And I know that I must step up my workouts the following week to compensate so it doesn't show on the scale. Big deal! I've done it countless times now in the past two years, and I know that I can be successful at it. AND, I know that if it shows on the scale next Saturday, I'll have it under control by the next Saturday.

I remember the anxiety I had in the beginning. The self doubt. The actual FEAR of the meal, and I laugh at myself now.

Hmm... you know what this tells me? I really AM here. I really AM a healthy person! DAMN this feels good!!!
