Realization about myself and weightloss

I’ve been trying to loose weight since Lily was born, and I havn’t lost more then 30 pounds, and seem to gain and loose the same ten pounds these past few months. 

I’ve realized though what’s kept me mentally from putting my all into loosing weight….See a few years ago I was a few pounds over what I wanted to be, I became a vegetarian and then didn’t eat anything processed much at all. I would also spend about 2 hours a week on a elliptical at my gym, and by myself do about 15-20 minutes of yoga every other day of the week…I lost five pounds in 3 months….and I remember this, then I remember when I was restricting during my high school days, I lost way to much weight in a few months. 

Know here is the creepy, awful, issue- My brain is telling me that for myself, personally the only way that I am able to loose weight is for me to restrict. 

I honestly don’t know how to conquer this thought process at all.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

I’ve been struggling a lot lately, so I made this comic to motivate myself. I hope it helps anyone else who’s in a bit of a slump like myself.
