Changing our Mindset about Overeating

I’m so tired of seeing all theses pill and drinks and things that are supposed to suppress your appetite or help you lose weight, in one way or another.  They don’t work.  Please don’t buy these and waste your money.  If you overeat, it is because you like to eat and you eat because it’s there.  It doesn’t matter if you’re hungry or not.  That’s not how overweight people think.  We see food and we want it.  Plain and simple.

I said you can stop reading.  You know who you are. The reason I want to talk to you about this is because I used to be just like you.  Fat.  Boy was I ever fat.  I’m talking thigh rubbing hate the summer sweat in the winter folds of skin fat.   The scary part, is that I could return to Fatville any day now.  Especially since I’m in a loving relationship, happy, getting older and let’s be honest, the race is over so why not let myself go?   It’s on my mind constantly.  It’s easy to get to Fatville from here.  It’s …
