New Attitude

I am starting out again with new plans. I am going to continue with Beck Diet For Life guidance in how to diet successfully. I am going to keep counting the calories on SP and working out at the Y. I am letting some old core beliefs go that do not serve me well anymore and am instead, going to try something new.

Thanks so much for my cleaning service.! That is one of those things I just dream about. Maybe one day I'll have one for real. Wouldn't that be cool?? I would absolutely make sure I did not reduce my overall activity. I mean, I do burn some calories cleaning, but would rather be burning more working out!! Happy Thinking Thin!! -Marsha

The meditation below is meant for people struggling with addiction to mind-altering chemicals. It applies to food as well for me. What I got from the reading this morning is that I don't have to make a "New Years" resolution with this diet, like I am tempted to do every year. I did it this year also. I was thinking things like," I can start on New Year's day, and I will eat whatever I want today..." I am sure that Dr. Beck would point out the cognitive errors in that type of thinking. I have shared this with my SP diet mentor today as well. The point is, that today is the only day that matters. What I am doing with this day is what I am doing with my life, as the meditation below points out. I also do not have to live this day alone! I have help today!

Today's thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

The new is but the old come true; each sunrise sees a new year born.
--Helen Hunt Jackson

We know that a totally new life can begin on any day of a year, at any hour of the day, or at any moment of an hour. That new life began the moment we decided to surrender and admit to powerlessness over a substance or an impulse. It began when we accepted the fact that we needed help and could receive it simply by asking.

Many of us used to choose New Year's Day as a time for making good resolutions and swearing off bad habits. When we failed, we simply shrugged and said, "Maybe I can start tomorrow, next week - or next New Year's Day." We were always going to "turn over a new leaf."

Now, in recovery, we no longer depend on doing it all alone. We know we can stay abstinent only by sharing with fellow members.

Let me remember, each day in recovery is another milestone. I no longer have to use a calendar.

You are reading from the book:
Easy Does It by Anonymous

Thanks for your comment on my blog....I know how you feel but as soon as you are ready you should....My diet coach told me that "the BEST way to GET Beck into our heads is to COACH someone else....." so I am afraid of it too but for that reason I will do it too! Think about that a bit...WE CAN BOTH DO THIS! We can ask other Beck-sters too what their opinion is. I love Spark because everyone is SO willing to see us victorious and to HELP!

Have a GREAT Sunday!
