I need a reality check, but it has to be a positive one. Not coming from the place I was in when I wrote the previous (deleted) post. When I wrote that I was having a stange moment sparked by an email I received from a raw marketer that I subscribe(d) to. I won't mention any names, but if you got the email, then you know who I'm talking about. At first I was offended, then amused and defiant (writing the post), then I went into a funk. Instead of exercising like I thought I would, I went in the kitchen and started eating. Negative breeds negative. I don't need to hear terms like "whale blubber", and "real porker" from a self-proclaimed politically incorrect exercise guru.
Yes, I'm overweight. I released 35 pounds my first 4 months raw. I released 0 pounds in the following 7 months raw. So what. It was fall and winter. Yes, I am an overeater. I love my raw food. I recognize that I must become physically active to release any more weight. But hating my fat and not accepting it as part of me, is not going to help me get there. My fat is very much a part of me. I earned every ounce of it. I take responsibility for it. Now I will take responsibility for releasing it.
