A few weeks ago I had a major meltdown in Panera’s. I saw a picture of myself and I was freaked out! “El Bloato”… I got mad. I got sad. Then, I got real. I knew I’d lost control of my life. I am overweight and miserable because of the choices I’ve made. I made a decision to exercise the self-discipline I know I have.
Several years ago I admitted that I was an alcoholic and quit drinking cold turkey. I thought that was the answer to all my problems. It wasn’t.
My addiction is to more than alchohol. I’m also addicted to sugar, fast foods, pizza, bread, chips, pasta, chocolate milk shakes, Snickers bars, M&M’s, pancakes, waffles, cookies of any kind, red chocolate cake, cupcakes, brownies, frosting, dips, anything fried especially French fries, cheese, bacon, hot dogs, butter….all the good stuff.
And the stuff I ate was making me fat and sick. So, I’ve changed my eating habits for life. I’m off sugar and gluten. I’ve lost seven pounds. More importantly, I’m back in charge of myself. I had to remember that I have choice about what I eat. I have a choice about how I look and feel.
I’m sharing this with you because if you’re unhappy with yourself, look at your choices and pay attention to what you’re eating. You have the power to take control of yourself and your body. Do it for yourself….you’re worth it!
