*This post is the beginning of (what I hope) several posts about my struggle to maintain good health-especially a healthy weight. It’s been a long journey for me already and I wanted to give some “background” about my own story.*
I was recently chatting with another (popular and in the public eye) blogger about one of her blog posts. She had posted about joining Jenny Craig. I had mixed emotions about this. On the one hand, I thought it was kind of a sell out tactic-the celebrities do this and it’s tiny portions of microwaved garbage and if you stop eating it, you gain the weight back-for what? But then I thought-damn, this woman is brave and putting herself out there. Am I not alone in this fight? This spiraled into a whirlwind of emotions and feelings that I had hoped would be gone forever or that I had shoved down so deep within my mind and being that I would never ever be able to find them again.
