September 6, 2021: Optavia Journey Begins

It’s the day before my Optavia journey begins and I’m feeling determined but also destined to have this program suck!

I can’t help it, I unpacked my “food” AKA “fuelings” and was so not impressed!

See my first impressions for yourself:

The most impressive thing in the shipment was the size of the books! (I’m not reading those.)

It’s me again! click this link if you want to learn more about Optavia so your Optavia journey can begin. After all, I’ve made it sound so promising lol.

I don’t come across as eager to embark on this program do I? Perhaps it’s because food has been such an important element of my life.

Sign a big contract; go out to dinner to celebrate, that “special” time of the month; ice cream and Netflix it is, meeting up with friends; lunch, having a bad day; donuts will make it all better, busy day at work; fast food drive thru here I come; don’t feel like cooking; dinner date it is!

Food has been my addiction for decades! It’s comforted me, saved me from boredom, calmed me, thrilled me, kept me company, dare I say it? Food has loved me when no one else did.

Now I’m trying to change that? For what? Husband doesn’t care that I’m fat!

But food has also mastered me, taken over my schedule, my thoughts, my ability to climb a flight of stairs without gasping. Food has become my idol, my God. I spend more time thinking about food than I do my Father.

I know that needs to change and besides, I’m stuck with it now.

It would be hard to explain to my husband throwing out $400!

Look at me all doom and gloom. I need to get excited, I need to get motivated!

Yeah, that’s not happening.

What have I done?

This is pretty much how I start all my diets…how unmotivating and self-defeating, geez Fatty, lay off me already!

I found this in the bottom of the box:

This I can get behind!
