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.

Diet Vs Lifestyle

I was just responding to a post on NutriMirror called "Thought I was Immune" and I had an epiphany. Man, I love epiphanys!

Basically it's this:

If you were on a diet, a day of oreas is "blowing it".

If you have created a lifestyle, you had a day of indulgence.

HUGE difference. I have days of indulgence. But my days of healthy choices far outnumber them, which is why I am a successful maintainer. I actually get that there is no such thing as "blowing it".

As long as you make dramatically more healthy choices than not, then what's the problem?

Diets fail. They suck. They restrict you. A healthy lifestyle allows indulgences... when you can afford them, when you have earned them, and when you choose to not let them rule your life.

YES! A thousand times YES! A lifestyle is a journey with no destination, where as a diet ends when you stuff half a cheesecake down yer gullet!
