Day 1-A Brand New Day

Saturday, June 11, 2011

I'm not sure what motivated me to get up this morning at start this except for yesterday I was feeling very low almost depressed because I haven't heard anything from any of the job applications that I've put out except for the rejections, but anyways...I decided to get out my diary (I hadn't written in over a year) and I started reading my past entries from last year when I didn't have a job and I was going through the whole emotional roller coaster of finding a job. What I found was a quote that I had written in there, "Each day is new day with no mistakes in it!" I remember hearing that quote given to Anne Shirley by Miss Stacey in Anne of Green Gables. And I realized that I needed to start by looking at the brighter side of life and focusing on my blessings rather than my troubles. My troubles seem nothing compared to those people in Joplin who lost everything including their jobs. Who am I to be wallowing in Self-Pity!! "Self, it's been fun, but I've found something else!" My life!!! To live my life to the fullest!! And frankly eating 6 to 8 cookies daily if not more is not going to help me to see my future in a healthy way!! I've always wanted to live to see our countries 300th BD! And I want to be healthy enough to do it even at 90! Anyways, this is a new beginning!!! I am making the commitment today! I realize that there will be days when I loose control of my life, but I know that each day is a new day with no mistakes in it!! Persevere to the lower goal! :P

    I had to laugh at the part about the cookies. That was me too! I ate cookies after breakfast!! I started my new healthy lifestyle in February and I actually had dreams about cookies!! It isn't easy to give those things up,
One thing I have learned is that losing weight is more addictive than I ever thought it would be.
I am pretty weak. I was very comfortable being obese for a long time. If I can lose weight here, so can you. I am most definitely here to support you!

  I am touched by your blog and would like to encourage you on your journey. It will be difficult at times especially in the first two weeks but if you are determined you will find success! Keep on keeping on! Trust in yourself to know that you have ability to make the change! :)
What helps me is the saying «not for today» ...not for today I won`t eat those cookies; maybe tomorrow! and then I never do :) I can eat more cookies than you but have too chosen to say NO; Not for today!
