Recently I read a post or two from a woman who talked about "dream outfits" and "last meals." She'd talk about eating the brownie dough out of the tube and then the next thing I was reading is how she turns down jobs because she is intimidated by how she looks. I feel very sad for her, I do not have a weight problem but would imagine it is difficult. I did truly feel horrible for her and decided to say a prayer that she finds her confidence. Her post were sad, her DH (dear husband) didn't sound supportive and actually called her "spoiled and selfish" and will eat Reese peanut butter cups in front of her. She did seem to be ok with all of it, maybe she is and then again maybe she isn't but my heart hurt for her. From what I read she had lost weight and sounded giddy with excitement and I was so happy for her...then I got to the part where she gained it all back. I give her credit, she knows her obstacles and problem areas and said she keeps her clothes from a 14 to a 24.
All of that made me think and start preparing for all of the holiday parties we have coming up. I think it helps to mentally prepare yourself on what food you will be facing and deciding ahead of time what is "worth" eating. I don't expect to lose weight in December (well maybe) but I won't be gaining any by planning ahead and making smart choices (I'm not overweight but I have to watch and be careful). I need to have a "food funeral" for cheese. I've always said I am not against elective surgery and I'm planning on saving money for plastic surgery one day but not weight lost surgery. R.I.P. cheese
