Hello again. Thought I would drop in before heading to bed.
CHANGE ...I don't think your talking about nickels, dimes or quarters. LOL
I often feel like I get "short changed" on diets. I do REALLY REALLY
good for an ENTIRE WEEK
and I only lose 2lbs.
Then after 3 weeks ...I STILL havent reach goal YET !!!
It amazes me how often I feel short changed.
Let me be honest... I didn't want to change.
I like eatting all of my favorite foods... and as much as I want.
I don't like having to exercise.
I wish I could just "WISH" a new body ...but continue to eat whatever I want, whenever I want.
I don't want those things to change.
BUT....CHANGE is a MUST for SUCCESS!!!!!
I have to change what I eat and the amounts.
I need to change the foods I eat the least (veggies) to the things I eat the most. And the foods I eat the most (fast foods) to the foods I eat the least.
I have to get this body moving. NOT just to lose weight... but because it is necessary for a healthy body and mind.
I have to change to a POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
Attitude is EVERYTHING !!!!
I have to think positive. I have to talk success. I have to read literature that uplifts me and inspires me. I have to quit badmouthing myself. I have to be my own best friend. I cannot hate myself into recovery. I need to take CARE of myself. I need to be gentle with myself. Not so gentle that I love myself to death. Tough love is sometimes needed.
I need to change my hate to forgiveness. I need to change my guilt to forgiveness. I need to change my anger to forgiveness.
Forgive YOURSELF...and even a few others too.
Change is sometimes a very difficult thing to deal with.
Change my eatting habits.
Change my activity levels.
Change my attitude.
Change my way of dealing with people...including myself.
Hmmmm.... maybe I want to change my mind about this recovery thing.
No.... I am going to WELCOME change with open arms...
.... even if you have to tie me down to do it.
