Tired of struggling

Recommended Posts

I need advice and help. I am a year out and have lost approx 80 lbs and am healthy and happy. I currently wear a 12 pants and large top. I think I look good but it never was about looks for me. I feel great!!! I would be happy if my journey stopped here but I struggle to keep my head above water everyday. I need advice. How do I make the cravings stop and finally relax and quit being so obsessed?

80 pounds? That is amazing work, and I know it could not have been easy. Give yourself a pat on the back for making it this far. I honestly wish I could tell you the cravings go away, but from what I understand, they don't. But things will get easier! Just remember, you have been reforming your healthy habits for about a year now... And if you are anything like me, I had formed the unhealthy habits over 28+ years, so it is going to take more time to overcome these cravings that we used to give in to for comfort. There was a quote on my baritastic app a few fays ago that I just had to screen shot, because truer words were never spoken - and I really hope it gives you some comfort during this challenging time in your journey.
