We all see ourselves in spite of ourselves. We don't see ourselves as others see us. We need to let ourselves off the hook and breath. Life is life and we can only do what we can do. There is a time and place for asking for help, for seeking other alternatives, for reaching out. We are human and not one of us is the same as another. We came into this world and alone and we will leave alone. But, friends we do not have to journey alone. There are so many situations and issues that cause us to break down. The challenges are not just found in drugs and alcohol, abuse, or even trauma. Weight loss is a huge journey and if one has not struggled with the fate of being over weight it is difficult to understand the indignation of being overweight. Its a scaring cancer in the core of who we are that truly can never be cured. It's not the same for every person and the results of losing weight do not affect each of us the same.
As I journey friends I vow to be there for you whoever you might be. I am your friend. I will walk with you through my journey and beside you for your own if you like. I know what it is so the sad, to be defeated, to be ashamed, and to be shunned and left alone. I am not perfect and weight loss is not a cure for all that is wrong in the soul or mind. Weight loss is a journey to physiological health and well being, but is only a part of the whole being. I am your friend and I am here if you need anyone walking through your own journeys.
Gob bless you friends each and every one. You are not alone!
