Obese, Afraid to Be Smaller

March 12, 2012

“I’ve gained a lot of weight over the past fifteen years. It came on slowly, but now I’m technically obese. I really want to get on a good healthy regimen and lose weight, but I think I’m actually afraid of being a smaller size. Like I won’t know what to do with myself if I’m totally different. Why is that? Seems like losing weight would be a good thing – what am I so afraid of?”
