In my "About Me" thing of my blog, I wrote that I know how I got here...self-preservation. I am leary of people. I am too trusting and gullible. There are a lot of people out there that will take terrible advantage of gullible people and I have been hurt a lot.
It doesn't help that I am bashful. When my brother and I were kids and we were in a strange place or around strangers, I used to hide behind him. I stuck to him like glue. But once I grew up, there was no one to hide behind or stick to. I have been single most of my adult life.
Fat became the perfect shield. People will pretty much leave you alone if you are fat. I keep to myself and don't go out much. That's why this blog is perfect for me. I have learned while reading others blogs that a lot of weight loss has to do with our thinking and attitudes. That we have to overcome those hurdles that keep us tied to our old, unhealthy way of thinking and living. I haven't done much of that really. And now, my weight loss is beginning to show and people are starting to pay attention to me again.
I don't know if I am ready for this.
