Smile Only I Can Do It For Me

I am watching a show on TLC right now called "The 750 Pound Man". I am watching this man and listening to his plight -- and I am wondering if I hadn't found this plan, if I would have topped out at that kind of morbidly obese weight someday?

I feel so capable right now. The fact that I know that I have the tools to give me back my life with this new lifestyle is an incredible gift.

I have to remember that there are people who, for whatever reason, are unable to use their bodies...or some part of their body -- and here I am, perfectly capable -- yet in the past, I've chosen NOT to use my body.

Use it or lose it -- that's for sure!

I am capable. I am strong (mentally and physically). I am beautiful. I am competent. I am ready to conquor this fat forever. I'm not only ready -- I am doing it.

I don't ever want to forget that there are people out there who have done a lot more with a lot less than what I'm blessed with -- talent, intelligence, information, self-esteem, etc.

I won't take my body and my health for granted anymore. It's my responsibility to preserve myself. No excuses - no woes -- no negativity -- no sabotaging thoughts -- no justifications -- none of it. Just do it -- or don't do it.

I made my choice. I'm going for the full monty! Come with me!!

Love to all...

I loved your title, it is absolutely true. No one can do it for us. We each have to take the personal responsibility for our lives and our health. Good for you for coming to this realization and putting it to practice.
