Feeling fat

This is the problem with being overweight. It's so difficult to feel normal and good about yourself. It's difficult to pull out of the funk and to not drown sorrows in donuts or french fries or the double fudge chocolate swirl ice cream (not my thing, but hey...I thought the rest of you could relate!). I know other people hear about emotional eating or feeling bad about yourself, but they really don't know what it's like. Well, this post that I stumbled upon really summs it up. If you're having a good day, then read it another time. It's kind of a bummer, but it puts things very bluntly and real.

Now, I'm not saying that I agree with the author all of the time. Or even most of the time. But some of the time? Yes. Yes I have. It's something I'm working on...and I think it is something important to come to terms with and deal with before ever becoming healthy.

I think it is great that you are trying to come to terms with it. It is hard to put yourself out there and make changes. Be proud of yourself for that! And stay strong!!!

Well I am fat so I feel fat. Not being mean, just stating the fact. But lately I've been feeling more overwhelmed and more bad about myself! It's hard!
