Week 6 – Day 4 — Mental State = Positive

It is so snowy outside!  I’m talking blizzard conditions!

This has been a good week so far.  My diet is going well and the circuits are still good.  As I’ve written before, this is becoming more of a mental journey than anything else.

A friend and I often meet for coffee and discuss our issues with nutrition and training.  She is in the same boat as me – former body-builder with slowed metabolism as a result of drastically losing weight.  The last time we met, there just happened to be a local university newspaper on the table at the coffee shop.  Low and behold…there was an article titled “It’s Not About Food”.  That article was meant to be there, I just know it!

The article was about a support group for university students with food issues.  The group meets one night a week for 6 weeks.  Well, didn’t we jump at the chance to contact the author of the article!!  We have now been accepted as members of the group.  I am really excited about it.  I am so looking forward to meeting other people with the same issues as me.

We may also get the chance to speak to a group of nursing students about our story.  This is great!  I hope that our respective stories will help others to understand what can happen with a drastic weight loss.  Not only physically, but mentally too. 

My current mental state = positive. 

Take care,

Melissa
