LTC for week 8

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

"If you’re stuck holding onto any guilt or resentment of yourself, how are you ever supposed to truly heal?"

Lime team challenge this week is a blog on: Can I forgive myself for the past? How will it affect my successful journey to better health?

Yes would be the right answer to the first question, but it is really no. I can not seem to get past forgiving myself for all the weight I have lost over the years and putting it all back on plus more. Every day I seem to beat myself up even though I tell myself I won't do it any more. I think this feeling guilty goes back to my childhood when I was constantly hounded for gaining weight. Of course that was when I learned to sooth my feelings with food also.

I know if I could let go of the guilt and just forgive myself I would be successful. I think I need therapy for this.

Part 2: How will I feel when I reach my goal weight? I would like to think I would finally feel great, then I wonder but will it fix everything? I think it would certainly make me feel happier, so many things in my life are painful due to this excess weight and those things would be removed.

    I totally understand... you said you needed therapy, is that an option for you?

That's how we got where we are.

But I do believe that we are learning different techniques for tackling this problem. We just need to remember it "in the moment". I've started congratulating myself for every time I make a healthy, good choice instead of giving in, and then feeling the positive emotion from that choice. It seems to be working for me. In spite of being very sore from the exercising for my current challenge - instead of cutting back because I'm really sore - I'm maintaining, and today was even more positive than yesterday.

    Forgiving is a truly powerful event when you can do it, I started by trying ti get rid of hostile grudges I was holding. Once I frogave the frist one, the rest came easy.

I am struggling right with you on where to start, so I am starting small. Going to start a journal and try to list all the things I need to forgive me for! will have to get a lock on it so no one else read it though LOL

You CAN do this, one baby step at a time!

    I don't beat myself up over the past BUT I do believe I resent how many years I have wasted on thoughts of losing weight, on always never being thin enough, my whole life since I was 13 on has been all about weight loss
I resent that, I'm 62 this week and still dwelling on weight loss.

We need to think HEALTHY --- healthy eating and exercise will just naturally lead to weight loss. Easier said then done.

    Well I know one thing Barb you would be so much more happier then you are now only because you would not have all the pain you have now -- and your diabetic problems would be gone --so your over health would improve tremendously..

Now about beating yourself up hon ... just stop you got to love yourself now as you are --forget the damn past it is not here anymore -- only the present .. you are loved by family and friends no matter ---remember that --- so you can love yourself --you are okay!!

    How is it that we can forgive others fairly easily, but when it comes to forgiving ourselves, it is extremely hard to let go. Hang in there and just try to remember that we are all human. emoticon

Hi Barbara, how has your 12 week challenge gone?

I've had a great challenge.

Thanks to all my Spark friends, especially my Pixie team who keep me on my toes, to do the best I can, take one day at a time, and believe in me.
