I called a friend last night and made a confession much like one would in an AA meeting. "Hi. My name is Barb and I'm fat." I then described to her all the things I cannot do anymore because my weight has crept up higher and higher.
My thinking was this would give me an advantage in my new conviction to lose weight and get my sugar under control. (Red, green, yellow or Blue Advantage didn't matter.) I needed to admit, confess, in order to move forward.
She listened (like a good friend will) then suggested I turn those negatives into positives. WHEN I lose weight I'll be able to do this. WHEN I lose weight I'll be able to do that. She suggested I make a list of these positive thoughts and put it on my refrigerator door. I decided to blog about it instead. I'm not going to make a list here of the things I cannot do anymore. The list is for me and a few trusted others. I will say this, though..
Hi. My name is Barb and I'm fat. But I won't be forever.
