Saying hello

Postby FatTactic » Tue Nov 30, 2010 6:39 am

Wow, that took me a while to figure out how to post just like it took me a while to figure out how to live at a confident weight. Avoiding complusions or obsessions of any sort is like trying to face off with Goliath without sling shot practice . . .forget it!
Support, knowledge, structure, sharing are vital and most importantly, knowing I am bigger than the pain that compells me to lie and think I need to cover or deny it with food.
Look forward to sharing the journey.
Warm Regards

Welcome FatTactic

I like the name it has a bit of a ring to it :D

I know what you mean about an obsession with food, I was eating hoping to gain some comfort, but despite the fact that it didn't work I kept doing it anyway. When I decided to lose weight I tried to analyze my motivations, and understanding them helped me modify my habits - enabling me to transfer some of that obsession in losing weight. I am aware that becoming too obsessive about losing weight can result in Anorexia, but a bit of obsession can be a great motivator.

The site has all the support, knowledge, structure, sharing that you could want, and if it is not here then someone can point you to where you can find more information.

All the best in achieving your goals - perhaps you can share those with us, and I look forward to sharing in your successes!
