I love your post from last night about not beating ourselves up if we overeat. And how each bite is a new choice. I see this type of advice and then forget it each time I screw up and take forever beating myself up. I will copy yours and print it to look at! Thanks, in short, is what I mean! High fives and I'm cheering for you!

Thank you! <3 oh I go through the ups and downs all the time! I've been dieting since I was 14, those awful teen years when you think your fat at 115 lbs...stupid. Then in my twenties I had four children and even though I worked out, I ate like a pig. And ever since I've struggled with my weight. I've had painful lows and depression because of it. I've been through all the crap and hated myself in the process, which only made me eat more.

I use to be a closet binge eater, even to the point where I begged God, crying out to him to help me.

It took me years and two divorces to realize that hating myself was doing me no good. Once I found love for myself and that being proud and confident in myself wasn't a sin, I became a whole new person!

Confidence comes from within, self love is learned through telling yourself over and over again that you love yourself. So motivation comes from the same place.

I'm super far from perfect when it comes to pushing myself to be better but I know each step is a step closer to a better me.

I no longer binge eat, instead of going to food to forget my problems, I face them and do what I can to fix them.

Still far from perfect but still happy :)
