If I'd had to honeslt describe myself before:

Depressed
Fat
Dishonest
- with myself, and with others about my eating
Frightened
Angry
- always - about everything.... (hence the recurring Kranky Korner)

Now... well I'm not ther yet, but I'm getting better.
Determined
I'm still Frightened - of failure, or rejection, of so many things
Capable
More positive - I'm not quite over the bouts of depression yet - but I am working towards a happier me.
Energetic

This journey will take time... but the rewards are so worth it.

Has anyone else noticed that CONFIDENT keeps re-appearing in the after list... Now there's a great reason to keep going!

i think this is a good thread to really reaffirm why you are trying to change your life and all the great things that are going to happen after you shed some weight :)
