This is what can happen in a year. I feel like one of those commercial women - "I lost BLANK lbs by switching to NutriSystem!" Really...I didn't switch to NutriSystem. But I'm still really happy with the progress that I have made on my own. I feel happier, healthier, and so much more like myself. I think that's part of our problem. We always want more, more, more. Lately, I've been feeling bad about myself, like I'm still not quite thin enough, or there's still so much more weight to lose. It's those times that I have to remember how far I've come. That doesn't mean I'm giving up. It just means that I am proud of myself, and there is no reason to look down on myself if I'm not to the exact place/weight/position that I want to be in. I just have to keep being positive, striving to become a better person, but not losing my true self in the process.
