[quote="Blitz"]Tams' post is on the mark klas26.
That person is right in one sense...once you are off the program you MAY put it back on again.
The reason why failure is possible is because there is no ownership on the process.
It is someone else's healthy lifestyle that you are aping.
Well yes! That person who said this to me is also skinny and never had a weight issue in their lives either!
Thanks DD Diva! you are right I do understand the choices Ive made! and Im proud to say no matter what weightloss program or lifestyle someone chooses Im supportive of their choices, long or short term to even get the ball rolling can be scary for some as it is!! So when this relative made this comment I thought it was darn rude to say the least as "well done" would of been a more motivational comment! ( despite weather they were right or wrong)
WE have been through hell over the past 2 years which has changed our lives for ever! Unfortunately its taken such a horrific tern of events to get to this mind set, the mind set of health being vital!!!!
So here goes!!!! Why did I take the "FIRST STEP" or in my case the 100th step! While my mother was being diagnosed with cancer we were all trying to help her through it little did we (nor did he know) that our brother was terminally ill also! (within 8 weeks of diagnosis he was gone) He has left behind 2 small children and a loving wife! my mother is still fighting!
Never in a million years did I see any of this coming and although not weight related! It cant help to be overweight right?? This whole process has scared the crap out of me... So yes! im trying a program! as I have tried the lapband.... and if this doesn't work (and it will) i will keep trying until I get it right! i have kids and now nieces to help look after so I have to do what i feel will work for me!!!
I certainly have ownership in this process! a clear plan and a goal! Im sure there will be ups and then downs and then more downs and then ups..... but anything that gets me started is a blessing! I have the lapband in, so plan to get it re filled once i shift some weight....so with the two combined and a lifestyle change altogether fingers crossed I reach goal.
I need positive remarks not negative I do enough negative all by myself so I plan to stay right away from that relative!!!
once again thanks for your support Im really hoping I can report with some good
