    ....afraid of the success of losing weight or even being slim?

    Who can answer why?

    Is it because of so many failed attempts that you just accepted it and hence the fear of actually doing it or is it something more/different?

    Can we even answer why?

    I will never say "I wish I did this sooner" because I didn't, it wasn't right for me then. I will not live with regrets about not doing it sooner. What I will live with is loving what I have done now.

    We didn't do it before because although we probably hated being fat, we somehow didn't feel ready to let other people get close.For me the fat was a form of defence.
    It's strange how somehow we know when the moment is right and just go for it and succeed. Kat you have done so well.
    I KNOW you'll never put it back.

    Gosh, I Was never afriad of it. dreamt of it every day, the minute I opened my eyes in the morning my first thought was I wish I was slim, and then my last thought when I closed my eyes at night was, I wish I was slim. Never ever felt fearful of it. I just felt it was unobtainable, and just something meant for everyone else, but never me.

    How wrong I was. ANd what a wonderful thing.

    Self doubt is about the worst thing we can do to ourselves. The destroyer of dreams. Once its knocked on its sorry head, then anything is possible!! :D :D
