But what did you learn?

Monday, January 14, 2008

How did I forget that being fat feels like crap? It's like your brain is the captain, but your whole body mutinies. Things I had forgotten, are suddenly becoming a problem again, not just phyiscal, but psychological as well. These are the things I have learned (again!) by gaining all my weight back.

Being Overweight Means:

1.) Almost constant Lower Back Pain

2.) Aching Joints

3.) Occasional Gall Bladder pains

4.) None of your clothes fit!

5.) Swollen feet

6.) When its comes to exercise, the mind is willing, but the body is weak!

7.) Shopping for clothes is a nightmare

8.) Hating what you see in the mirror

9.) Feeling self-conscious in public

10.) Not being able to wear your wedding ring

11.) Not being able to fit your butt comfortably in certain chairs.

12.) Being Clumsy (Knocking things over with your butt/hips all too often!)

I could go on and on and on. I wish I hadn't had to learn these things again.

    I get it. I get it. More than I wish, and the sad thing is that #10 is the one that got me. I have not worn my wedding ring in over a year and it pains me to know why.
    I am sorry you loss all that weigh and gained so much back, but somehow it gave me hope. Like you, I have gone up and down and up again and it takes me a long time to recover when I go up again because I feel like such a failure. But now I do not feel like I'm the only one. I guess they are right when they say that misery loves company, it makes me feel better that someone else understands what it is to refuse to make your wedding band bigger. I do not want to do it, it would be admitting total defeat!
    Thank you for your blog

    I totally understand as you well know. :( I just know this time, I will not forget and I won't quit! Just think, you did it before, you can do it again! I have faith in you!

    If only we could be pinched into remembering what happens when we over eat everytime we want to eat something we don't need. Oh well, atleast it is not something that is permanent. Thank God we have SP and each other to get us through those times when we forget.
