Why When Trying To Fool Others About Our Eating Habits, We're Really Just Fooling Ourselves

Why When Trying To Fool Others About Our Eating Habits, We're Really Just Fooling Ourselves

“I can sympathize with you. I never told anyone how much I weighed. Finally, after seeing the season of Biggest Loser where the contestants had to weigh in before their family, friends, and communities, I came clean. First with my husband and then with my daughter. Talking about how much mom weighed was taboo in our house. I took it out of the closet and will now tell anyone what I weigh. I started at 314.4 and am now 79.6 pounds lighter. Seventy five pounds of that has been in the last 15 months. I am obviously not done at 234.8 but I have never felt better about myself. I work out with a personal trainer three times a week and then do cardio at least three times a week on my own. I walked my first 5K this past weekend and am looking for another. I have more confidence in myself knowing that nothing is impossible; I'm possible!”

“Wow, Nancy! Thank you so much for sharing your story -- and your weight. I love that! It inspires me greatly -- and I'm sure will inspire others as well. I love that you seem to be celebrating every step of your journey. Too often we get focused on the "end goal," which can often lead us off the path to success. Every pound loss is a triumph. And I'm sure you're looking damned fine at 234.8 (I love that you even include the .8! Awesome!). Keep up the amazing work and thanks again for the beautiful dose of courage and inspiration. We can all use it -- and send it right back to you!”
