I need to have a "Come to Jesus" meeting...

...with myself.  

Stop it.  Stop wallowing.  Where's it getting you?  Not any healthier, that's for sure!  Yeah, you know what?  Lots of people don't feel well.  Lots of people don't know a diagnosis and feel like crap.  That is no excuse!  If anything, it's a reason to be taking BETTER care of yourself!  Like sneaking those handfulls of popcorn or cheese crackers doesn't count?  Who are you trying to fool?  The scale isn't fooled, and that's why you only lost a half pound this week.

Suck it up.  Yeah, he's gone for a while.  You've got stress from school.  You've bitten off more than you can chew - again.  Deal with it.  You can do it.  You can do all of this if you will apply yourself.  Hiding out, sulking, and stress eating isn't going to cut it.  It's just not.

You have seven weeks from today.  You'll see your BFF again, you'll get to meet some ladies IRL that you've befriended over the last few years.  Don't you want to be at your best?  Don't you want to be proud of yourself?  Of course you do!  Seven weeks.  You could lose up to 14 lbs in that amount of time.  Can you even imagine?  Weighing the same as 9 years ago?  

Follow the plan - the farmer market/fruit stand and the meat market.  Don't buy those carbs.  Just don't do it.  Yes, I know how good buttered spaghetti is.  You did a good job not buying a bunch of crap the last few weeks.  Just hold out.  You can do it.  Get off your ass.  It doesn't matter if you're not feeling well... stretch, go for a walk, but MOVE.  Stop letting it get the best of you.

There is no one but you that can take these steps.  This is your journey, Amber.  No one else's.
