Round, Thank you so much for your story. It could not have been easy to write or share. I am taking things one day at a time but I know I will beat the food demon. I do deserve to be healthy and happy so when I get up each morning I will chose to eat healthy that day and will tell myself I deserve to put myself first and I can do this. I don't know if you and your wife are on facebook but I found a health and wellness website and she is really good at posting 3 or 4 times a day positive thoughts and ideas. Really inspiring. She posted this today
"If you spend all your time taking care of others and no time taking care of yourself, eventually you will not be able to take care of anyone. Taking care of you first will help you be a better friend, partner, parent and worker. It is not selfish to put your needs at the top if your priority list. If you take the time to help yourself, you are better able to help others."
Her page is called "this is not a diet, it is your life"
We can do this if we take it day by day and step by step~
