Just to Clarify
I’m not on a diet.
This is a choice.
I’m not feeling deprived.
There are not foods I “can’t have.”
I am choosing to eat a certain way.
I am choosing to change my life.
I don’t miss cheesy pizza.
I don’t miss pecan pie.
I don’t miss feeling stuffed and kludgy.
I have more energy.
I have fewer mood swings.
I do feel hungry sometimes and that’s ok. It’s normal. And I will survive.
I want to have a better life and I’m making choices to make it better.
There’s no way to “cheat” because then I would be the cheated-upon.
I don’t care what you eat or don’t eat.
I just want you to understand that you don’t have to feel bad for me, hide what you’re eating from me, or express pity for me.
I’m fine. I feel happier about food than I have in a long time. This is a path I want to be on.
