Oh what a feelin'

I found an incredible blog today thanks to Michelle. Wow. I'm going back to the very beginning of this woman's weight loss journey a year ago and reading every post. I can relate to so much. I could of been her. She is me. We are soul sisters. I am inspired. I sit here with tears in my eyes actually feeling some feeling (I think) and yet, I cannot let go completely. And right about this moment I am starting to shut down. stop it. Write Jen. Get it out. So much I read tonight that hits home. Especially the pictures thing. I have been left out of so many family moments because I don't want to get my picture taken. And I love pictures. I love them. I am starting to get emotional, yet I cannot allow myself to feel it completely. I'm starting to distract myself. I'll write again later. Going to find the last family picture we took.


  1. You see it, right? You started to feel some emotion so off you go running to a McFlurry to save you. But the food never satisfies. The sugar only makes you feel bad and guilty, yet we keep trying to get that food to make us feel better... and it never does. Allow yourself to feel the pain. Once you feel the pain food has brought you, the pain obesity brings to you and your family you will be ready to make a change.

    I'm right there with you girl!


  2. What's the name of the blog? I am so glad for you. I'm still in a difficult spot myself and I hate every second of it. But we can do it.

  3. Hey Erin! It's A Deliberate Life and under my daily reads. I have gone all the way to last year to get caught up.
