Fast-Forward Sass Yourself Slim
Iif you read yesterday's post you probably just nodded your head. I deleted it after reading how counter-productive my behavior was. I needed to write it out so I could examine it. Done...
About Sass Yourself Slim/5 Day Fast Forward. It feels like a fad diet. I find it difficult to eat during the times recommended. I switched some of the 4 meals around. I had the smoothe for breakfast instead of 10 o'clock at night. I am asleep at 10 p.m. I'm eating the recommended meals but switching the order.
It's day #2 and I'm already off plan. I added egg whites, used spring mix/spinach combo for my salad. The fast-forward is very restrictive. I'll continue as best I can as my goal is to reduce sugar cravings and ultimately, regulate my hunger. I know the juice from the orange contains sugar and well, it's not easy reducing sugar from one's diet.
I am drinking lots of water and because the fast forward recommends Tea, I'm sipping a cup of this after lunch.
Last night, I met our walking group for an intermediate 7 mile urban hike from 65th Street, to Sacramento State College, then to Watt Avenue through the Bike Trail and back. I cannot believe we hiked this just under 2 hours. The group was fast. I met a 74 year old woman who walked faster than I and she did it effortlessly. She was such an inspiration.
While waitng for others, I introduced myself to a woman and was immediately told the hike would be tough and strenuous. I knew this as I read comments from others who completed past hikes. I told the woman I had climbed Mt. Tallac twice and thought I could handle it. She looked suprised.
On the way back, I thought of the woman's warning. I am embarrased to say this but for a minute, I wondered if the question had anything to do with my weight? Obviously, I'm heavier than most people in the group. I did not like this negative feeling or felt maybe my thoughts had to due with insecurity and being self-conscious. If I'm going to be honest with self, I have felt the sting of prejudice from being fat. Not often, but I think it lays somewhere... just below the surface. I did not like thinking: Am I being judged by my weight?
I could be completely wrong. It could be guilty of projecting my own feelings here. But let's be honest. Has this thought ever crossed your mind?
In the end, it really doesn't matter. We should not let our perceptions or our insecurities stop us from enjoying life. I'm not going to wait until I lose weight to get out there and live. No way...
Tell me, have you ever felt prejudice due to your weight? If so, do you think it's legit or all in our heads?
