Can I accept myself fat

myself big and that was that…until I tested borderline diabetic. AND, discovered high blood pressure, high cholesterol and was experiencing fatigue and difficulty breathing. Was this really okay with me? It was only going to get worse as time went on. To each his own, but for me, that’s not acceptable anymore… Link to Today Show clip: … dpdesigngirl denise olmstead weight watchers losing body for life clean eating health fitness workout run walk roller skate gym …

    WOOOHOOOO ON THE 10%! Congrats, YOU’RE ROCKIN’!!!
    Very very well said about the fat acceptance. You and I think alike except you can put words to it much better than I can.

    So, so sorry about Cali.

    Thank you darlin’! 15 lbs. away from goal!!?? that’s awesome!!! 160 is my first goal Once I reach that, maybe I’ll go lower, depends on alot of things tho. I am also hoping my blood pressure issues disappear! Thank you about my cat….sad thing last night…I hear a cat cry outside my window and jumped up out of bed and ran downstairs, threw open the door and called “kitty kitty!” before I realized 1) it wasn’t Cali and 2) it was like 4 a.m. ~ I cried for a half hour after that…ugh.

    My goal is 167lbs ( am 15lbs away) because when I was 267lbs…167lbs sounded MUCH better to me. I no longer have any of the issues that I had at 267. The only one that still remains is sometimes a very slight raise in blood pressure and I have cut down ALOT on salt and processed foods and hopefully as I lose the last amount of weight that problem will go away. I’m so sorry to hear about your cat. ((hugs))

    Sorry about ur loss. Losing a pet can be just as bad as losing a person. They are our friends. Congrats on ur weight loss! Ur doing great!

    I am sorry about the loss of your cat, I once lost my cat in college and was taking summer classes and I had to drop the classes I was so devistated I felt like my best fried died so it was awful so I know what you mean when you say your cat was your friend. I agree with you say about acceptance and yes if a person has never been over weight they really can’t talk about the issue.
