I’ve been to a few counselling sessions now and I’ve talked about many things. I’ve talked about life, family, work and of course the weight issue…talked about the various things that had led to that weight gain when finally he stopped me and he said ok Rach enough what has happened in the past is in the past you need to leave it there now. “You are standing at a fork in the road do you carry on or do you make choices. If you stay on this road living in the past your weight isn’t going to change but if you make a choice and make action then everything you want is within your reach…. that amazing that you want to be is a very real possibility.”
I froze….. I was in shock hang on wait you want me to take action and not just talk about it? You want me to make choices and not just wish for a quick fix. Why are we not eating chocolate and watching the notebook and discussing how unfair it is that some people can eat whatever they want without gaining weight.
I felt scared
I felt confronted
I felt inspired
The very next day I rang a local exercise physiology centre that runs an obesity clinic and booked in for an initial appointment which is this thursday by the way. An obesity clinic because that’s what I am…Obese, owning the word is the first step to changing it.
I feel terrified
I feel proud of myself
I feel hopeful
Amazing is on the way.
