Day 27 Challenge: What do you feel guilty for doing?

Besides eating anything sweet, fried, or cheesy? I honestly can't think of anything I feel guilty about that doesn't have to do with food. When I was in therapy for bulimia as a teenager I went to support meetings where we compared addictions. Let me be clear about this, they all suck. I just remember a counselor saying the difference between eating addictions and drugs or alcohol is that you have to walk your addiction three times a day. I really don't dwell on this any more than I dwell on the loss of my dad. We all have our crosses to bare. I remember watching The Biggest Loser a few seasons ago and there was a cast member on that had lost her husband, five year old daughter and week old newborn in a traffic accident. My life problems are nothing compared to that. I am very blessed.

I will find what I need in life because I am stronger than I look and I am not going to let the guilt of eating a slice of pizza once in a blue moon hang over my head and stop me. I am not going to let my insecurities keep me from meeting new people or going to dance class and making a fool of myself. I am not going to let the haters & doubters dictate my feelings about myself. If someone doesn't like me for superficial reasons, that is on them. If someone hates me for my personality, I am okay with that too. I quit apologizing for who I am long ago. I like who I am more and more every day. I am going to be great someday soon, watch me!

I think you are AWESOME!!

I complain about "petty" things and then I see someone who has lost everything and is still loving life. I've learned to appreciate all the wonderful things God has blessed me with, especially my friends!!
