The Cheese…

Once upon a time there was a girl who loved cheese…

She loved cheese so much that people sometimes had mistaken her for a mouse…

Every occasion. every holiday, every “oops”…she bought cheese…

But she didn’t buy cheese this New Years Eve…

Even though she had bought cheese EVER OTHER YEAR. Even when it was the eve of her hitting lifetime, eve of her commercial debut…she bought cheese. Lots of it. Lots she would not track…

But she didn’t buy cheese this New Years Eve…

Why??

Because when you lose 100+ lbs and then gain it back in a year, you learn some shit….you learn that you do not have an eating problem. You are a creature of habit.

And that I am….always giving into to my habits.

But I have the upper hand because I’ve seen the “peak”…I know how great I *CAN* feel….

People who lose and then gain are often called losers…

I call us Believers (really….no pun attended).

Because I know how fucking hard I worked to get where I got. And sure, I can beat myself up about where I am now,or I can fight,,,

And I’m not Suzi Fucking Storm for nothing….

  1. Oh I love cheese too! Old habits can be replaced with better healthier habits, but you know that :).

  3. I LOVE CHEESE! I'm also a creature of habit so I know my strengths and weaknesses. Good for you for being so self-aware! :)

  4. Oh, my, yes...cheese. When I actually do have some now, I can tell in its goodness why it's so bad for me. This year for holidays, I felt indulgent with shrimp and cocktail sauce...way fewer points! I miss cheese, but like you, I remind myself that there are other ways to go. Like I tell my daughter when she wants a treat or new toy, it's not "for special" if you do it all the time.

  6. cheese. It is a downfall for many. Which is why I also did not buy it for NY's Eve or Christmas dinners. It seems simple but when you prep your life and where you live, it can be easier and it helps to not fall back into those traps. Lot's of hugs Suzi.

  7. I love the statement "you learn that you do not have an eating problem. You are a creature of habit." Because that is exactly how I feel even though I have never ever been able to really say it. It's so true, thank you for putting it into the words I have been looking for.

  10. I just found your site and you are SO inspirational! I am a former-marathoner-gone-fat-again and absolutely miserable. I've gained all of the 80 pounds that I had lost and am having a tough time getting back on track. Stay strong and know that you ARE motivating others!! Thank you! :0)
