A couple of friends of mine, over the weekend, had a discussion with me where they shared their concerns about the potential of my gaining this weight back (not to be confused with the weight I gained back in 2013-2014). I appreciate their concern, I really do. And the last thing I want is to keep stressing my body out physically with huge losses and gains. I think of Luther Vandross and the strain he put on his body going way up and way down over the years. My intention is to lose this weight, and then go through the hardest work of maintenance.
It’s not going to be easy and I appreciate their wanting to get in front of the discussion. All I know is I will be relying on friends, family, and my therapist to keep me accountable. As well as OA.
