It’s hard to find lasting success when you give up so easily on yourself. It took me 43.5 years to get off the dieting crazy train. I’d try the latest fad diet to lose weight, and it usually worked for a time. But it never taught me a lifestyle. So as soon as I lost the weight, or got sick of it, I’d go bonkers and eat anything and everything and gain all the weight back (and then some.) This cycle was on repeat year after year, decade after decade. I was beginning to think I didn’t have it in me to figure out how to have success once and for all. During my darkest hour, of discovering my autoimmune issues, I found myself. I have unlocked the key to realistic results because for once I was actually consistent and committed for the right reasons. I don’t have the luxury of giving up on myself. I wanted my health back and no Oreo, or donut, or large pizza could trump my desire to feel healthy again. The silver lining of my disease was it gave me a reason, other than just wanting to be a smaller size, to eat healthy. Not only did I find my health again, but I lost weight without focusing on it! Sure, I could go back to eating the other junk, but then I’d be giving up feeling vibrant, alive, joyful, and physically fit. All of those positives mean way more to me than a temporary food high from a weekend binge fest. I’ve been there, done that, and I’ll pass on that rodeo. I know what it means to feel this darn good and I’m hanging on to it for all that it’s worth! You may not have an autoimmune disease, but you deserve just as much as anyone to feel GOOD! So stop giving up on yourself, stop the diet/binge cycle, find the right lifestyle of eating that’s right for you and commit to it. Consistency and time will bring you the results!!!
