Once a fatty always a fatty
Inside me lives a little fat person, when it gets to friday he wakes up and quietly whispers in my ear that I should feed him junk food. He would very much like it if he could grow fat again and live in the real world. Most of the time he is able to give a very good reason of why I should feed him and more than I would like his sales pitch works.
When it came to losing weight and getting into shape all those years ago I guess I thought that when I had finally lost it all and become the fit, muscular person that I aspired to be, my problems with over eating and over drinking would be a thing of the past. Sadly this is not a fact, I have however over the last 17 years figured out how to control these urges and how to stay in shape, but that little fat person has never gone away. I couldn’t possibly write every way that I win these little battles as there is easily a million, but they serve me very well in my chosen profession as the people I deal with are all going through similar things and I can always offer a solution to a food/drink based problem.
To summarize I would advise to simply stick with little battles, don’t worry about how much weight you have got to lose overall or how your going to avoid eating and drinking food at that party, just deal with the smallest goal at hand, aim to move forward with your weight loss in whatever amount your capable at that point in time, wether that be just not putting on weight for the week or losing the minimum of one pound, or even putting weight on and understanding what it was that you got wrong and therefore avoiding that situation in the future.
