I always tell people that ask me why I chose Weight Watchers instead of something faster (ie gastric surgery) the same thing. The quick fix diets may help you lose weight fast but **I** NEEDED the time.
What do I mean?
Yes, losing weight is hard. But no one tells you how emotional it is. It’s not just about the food. You WILL change. Your relationship with people will change too. There will be people in your life that embrace what you are trying to do and others that won’t do well with the changes you’re making.
Trying to figure that all out in a few weeks would have given me a mental breakdown. So yes. I needed the time. To lose weight. To embrace the new me. To cry over friends lost (Oh yes. I’ve lost friends!) and let them go. To enjoy meeting new friends. To build a new relationship with my husband. To figure out the person I want to be instead of what everyone else wants me to be. To be selfish. To love me again.
Now for the confession part.
My husband said he missed me yesterday and it kinda broke my heart. I’m still trying to find that balance with work, activities, friends and family.
So yeah… I need a clone. :/
