Default Freedom versus obsessing

On January 1st, 2018 I reached my all time maximum weight: 165 lb. I fervently prayed God to help me in my lifelong struggle to lose weight once and for all. Generally speaking my weight was not alarming at all but for my particular body it prevented its optimal functionality and therefore was unacceptable to me.

At the same time I watched an episode of the American program: "My 600 lb life" every night. Reckognizing that, like dr. Nowzaradan's patients often are, I was just as much an emotional eater and that I, too, ate without being actually hungry, just like the people in the series, I felt a strong bond with them. This helped and provided me with the daily 'antidote' for snacking.

On June 30, 2018 I weighed 117 lb (target weight 119 lb). My blood pressure changed from 149/94 mmHg into 125/70 mmHg without medications. I can walk for hours without ever getting tired.

I feel liberated and energetic, free from any obsession! I feel so thankful! And Ziva, my 15 week old German Shepherd, is thankful with me.

I still eat what made me lose the weight (but now in bigger quantities): fresh food: huge amounts of fresh fruit and vegetables, a little meat or fish, whole grain products like whole grain bread and rye bread, whole grain macaroni and spaghetti, 50% fat Dutch, French or Swiss cheese, Greek yoghurt, lots of fresh tapwater and 2 - 4 cups of black coffee. I don't like the taste of alcohol. I don't drink juces nor smoothies. I'd rather chew the fruit. My dinners are being prepared in olive oil (first pressing). When I eat in restaurants, I choose the healthiest options.

So here I am: free, no more diets, no mental straitjackets in any form!

I feel so relieved and happy!
