I just ran across an article written by Jen Larson who lost 180 pounds via weight loss surgery. I am linking to this well-written and totally spot-on story because it is a reminder from yet another maintainer that losing weight isn’t the cure-all, fix-all solution that many people believe it is.
I remain firm and steadfast about my opinion on this topic as well: Lose the weight to be healthier. Lose it to feel better. Lose it to enrich your life, but don’t lose it hoping it will fix everything that’s wrong in your life. Love yourself whatever size you are on your road to healthiness. You’ll enter maintenance a much happier person.
Here is Jen’s article, which I highly recommend reading, and if you do I’d love to know your thoughts on this topic. What Losing 180 Pounds Really Does to Your Body – and Your Mind
Have a great day, everyone!
