This is such a powerful statement of absolute truth!
I am a prime example of how to screw this up too!
In 2009-2010 I lost all my excess weight (over 75#) on LC and then ZC
Then I went to Culinary school to become a Certified Chef....
Oh boy....I'm sure you all can imagine what happened next
Anyway......so now I'm down to my last 25# to lose
I gained back all my weight plus an extra 25# btw...so it's extra hard this time
But there is no way in Hell I am doing this again
I'm done being ashamed of my HUGE mistake
And have moved on...I think my purpose is to encourage others
Which is one of the reasons I am here
We all fall down...but you have to bet back up and keep walking, crawling, hopping, hobbling, wheelchairing etc...
If a chef with two knee surgeries in the last year can lose over 70#
Anyone can...,it's NOT EASY....but boy is it REWARDING!
Keep on keepin on folks!
