sarah, i am with you here.
i have weight issues since the beginning of adolescence and am struggling and struggling and struggling.
sometimes i win and most of the time i lose.
in the last months there seems to be a change as i finally gave myself the chance to conquer the situation slowly by really being kind to myself and changing the mindset.
i have a background of diabetes in my family and am sure to have this thing called metabolic syndrome.
so my way is to cut down on carbs and having my own special diet plan with only foods i love but which still are healthy (for me).
working out is not easy for me. i can only do up to an hour a day and only if i am really fine. otherwise i will get the flu in a minute. really frustrating.
i recently bought a bellicon. a special medical trampoline. it helps a lot with my joints and my back as well.
sometimes i have to take a break from it all and that is fine with me. i always get back on track because i stopped beating myself up.
that is the keypoint for me.
never beating myself up, always reminding myself of what i already achieved.
and still i have a lot of weight to lose but i have time. i cannot change it this minute but by showing up every day i will be able to be there someday. maybe even in 2013!
send you my best thoughts!
