nancyr Posted March 30, 2015 Share Posted March 30, 2015 The last week has been really tough and I'm at the end of my rope. I feel fat, sick, tired, bloated, and depressed. It's not that I haven't noticed this before. Believe me, at 301 lbs, I never feel good. This is my highest weight and my whole "as long as it doesn't stop me from doing things, being fat doesn't bother me" argument no longer holds water because now it is stopping me from doing things. Things like tying my shoes without getting out of breath and red in the face, getting on an airplane without being mortified by asking for a seat belt extender, and sitting or standing or sleeping without pain. I desperately need a relaxing vacation but won't plan one because I don't want to go any where that I might need to dress up or wear less clothing (I haven't worn a bathing suit since I was 5 years old). I have a successful career but I know my glass ceiling is my weight. I cannot find professional clothes that fit right or look good. My Whole30 starts right now, with tonight's dinner - baked chicken and broccoli. Tomorrow can officially be Day 1, but I decided I am worth fighting for and I'm not going to wait to stand up for (and to) myself. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
