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.
