An account of an obese woman's weight loss journey.

I needed to see this today.
For those of you who know me well, you know I can be very
melancholy at times. The world can seem too much some days. Over the past few
days, I have been very melancholy. Part of it is self-doubt regarding my weight
loss and part of it is just where we are in life right now. I am really
struggling with believing I can finish my weight loss and reach my goal. On one
hand, I am tired of fighting and working so dang hard and on the other hand, I
want to reach my goal so badly. Why after so much success do I still doubt
myself? Why does doubt even dare to show itself after the success I have seen?
Why do I doubt my strength and my abilities? Why do I fail to see what I am
capable of? I have no idea. I am searching for answers because I believe this
self-doubt is exactly what is keeping me from reaching my goal. One day I am on
top of the world and the next day I am convinced I just cannot do it. Why? Do
not hear me wrong. I am not quitting. I am just trying to figure out why this
doubt creeps up and how I can combat it so it does not sabotage my efforts.
