lisa-g2Eating should be fun. It should be pleasurable. You should be able to enjoy each and every single eating experience. There should be no room for guilt when eating is involved. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. I know that pretty well.

I had always been an overweight child. It got worse in junior high. I just loved to cook and to eat. I lived for both.

I found it really ironic. Cooking was my passion but eating was my guilt. I just loved cooking all sorts of dishes. Unfortunately, eating them just made me feel so guilty. I just felt awful each time I ate but that didn’t stop me. I still ate and felt guilty afterwards.

Then something happened. I reached my heaviest weight. I remember it vividly.  I was turning 20 and I felt so depressed. I just couldn’t look at myself.

That was when I made a promise to myself. I promised myself a happy 21st birthday. The only way that was going to happen was if I lost some weight. I had to lose weight. My health was in danger and I looked and I felt bad. It just wasn’t fun for me to turn 20 at that time. Hence, I wanted to feel a lot better on my 21st birthday.

So I committed my 20th year of existence to losing weight. I had never dieted before and I had no idea what I was getting into.

My first few weeks of trying to lose weight were challenging. I just couldn’t do away with the guilt. Each time I ate something, I felt guilty. Each time I missed a day of workout, I felt guilty as well. I was just feeling so guilty all the time. Then finally I was able to find a more guiltless way to lose weight.

That is what I’m going to share with you here on 021lsg.com. I am going to tell you how I was able to let go of the guilt and finally lose some weight. Yes, I did it!

This is my year’s journey to weight loss and I can’t wait to share everything with you. Find out how I was able to let go of the guilt that comes with dieting.
