Hi Nunu and everyone,
I just re-read what I wrote and I feel as though what I wrote may come across as "rubbing it in your face" and insensitive
I'm sorry if anyone feels this way.
Let me explain:
My boyfriend is supportive but seeing as he has never had a weight issue I think it may be a bit harder for him to really
understand what this means to me. So that's why I excitedly wrote it here when I got home.
From past experience Nunu (and trust me I was a baaad
snacker) I found that if there was no crap food in the house then I could not eat it and the temptation was minimal. When I see junk food ads on TV now I think of the long term picture (healthy and fit me) rather than how good the food may (or may not
) taste. So what I'm trying to say is I try my absolute hardest to talk myself out of wanting junk food. It may sound weird but hey it works (majority of the time) for me. Of course having a little naughty snack every now and then is fine, but in moderation.
Eventually you may even be repulsed by junk food and not even want it very much.
I truly wish you Nunu, and everyone, all the very best along your journeys.
When your feeling down just think of all the great things we may have in our lives and that we can walk, talk, see, smell, hear...... you get the picture.
I care for disabled adults and I am reminded of this on a daily basis, when I see the look of determination on their faces it inspires me personally to push myself that little bit harder when I'm having a tough time.
