The last few weeks I've heard so many people talk about losing weight and trying to get into shape that I tended to clam up and not say anything. Why? Because what I heard from most equaled defeat not a life long change, which is what it takes to survive in this weight loss world.
I've been doing this a long, long time and know enough that its a continual mental process of change that I must go through to succeed.
Our bodies change on a regular basis and we must stop and try different combinations of things to keep it burning and for me maintaining.
I must continue to stay motivated and in part of doing that is why I am here on the NS Community reading others successes and continuing in being honest with myself and where I am at today. Taking a good hard look at my body and if I need to adjust.
Looking back on where I came from is huge for me. Its like I don't even know that person anymore. I have been skinny for over 4 ½ years and pretty healthy for a Type 1 diabetic.
Take a good hard look at why your here and what you think its going to take to be successful. It isn't a short effort, its a life long effort and its best you keep that in mind now as you approach goal.
Going back to the overweight Sheri and very, very sick one was and is not an option for me. I do whatever it takes to stay on top of my weight daily and live by the NS plan even though I no longer eat their food.
