I Had a Relapse!!!
In the fall of 2008 I found myself in a situation that I did not know how to handle. My upbringing taught me that I should back off, be quiet and not communicate any of my feelings or opinions on the topic and that is what I did. Before it was all done and I realized what I was doing, I had gained 20 pounds.
I have now stopped ignoring the issue and have stopped gaining weight... I am back losing again and moving to my natural healthy weight. I still haven't figured out how to let my opinion be known in a manner that is respectful to others but, with some focus and effort I will get there!
One thing I have learned.... Keep an eye on my weight... It is a good indicator of how I am doing emotionally and whether I am being accepting of myself! That is a pretty good lesson learned!!!
