FOOD is my drug

Renae —  October 3, 2015 — Leave a comment

Addiction,  we all have something, mine just happens to be food! Poor choices rule me from time to time and food IS my drug! What I struggle with the most, like any other addict, is guilt. When I fall off the wagon, I just need to get up, brush myself off,  and get right back on! HA!!! I made that sound really easy didn’t I? It’s the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Accountability stinks! I am confessing now before the proverbial “wagon” runs right over top of me! I have gained 20 pounds quickly and I have to get control NOW!!

There are days when I feel like I am drowning in a pool of negativity. Reading through past blogs tells me that’s exactly what I am doing!  Focusing on the fact that I am bigger than my teammates, not quite as strong, and struggling to find time to train IS NOT working. I need some positive vibes in my life and it seems like I get the most when I am with my Missfits in the gym. That hasn’t been happening a lot the last few months because of crazy schedules and life. How many of you let negativity consume you?

On a positive note I am getting stronger and have kept off 70 pounds of my weight loss BUT, I have to gain control of my eating before it consumes me! Each one of us has something we struggle with and that makes us human. Today, I am letting go of the negatives and focusing on the positives and I need all of you to hold me accountable! Like any other addict, one day at a time, and in my case,  one meal at a time!

Family is more than blood

This week has been a hard one, but it has made us realize that when one of us is hurting or needs support, we all rally around one another and that makes us stronger. It simply reminds us that we are more than friends, we are family!
