Are you a willing or an unwilling partner in your healthy life change journey?
Willing of course meaning you are 100% in or unwilling meaning you are laxed even in the slightest?
I'd say honestly I'm an unwilling partner. I have good and bad days. I'm in it for the long haul and maybe that's what makes the difference for me. I eat what I want, when I want but I've still managed to lose 59 lbs in the past few years. Oh I could have had a bigger number I know that. But I chose to take it slower. I chose to make sure my lbs stayed off. And if that means being laxed than so-be-it.
How about you? What do you think about my analysis?
Is that where you are at in your life? We can choose this you know what I mean? We choose daily how we are going to live today. Make the best choice possible for you and where you are at in your journey.
I was at my mom's yesterday as in every Sunday for the past 10 years+ and I played with her beautiful cat Jingles. He's completely blind, a stray and they have had him for the past 5 years or so. This morning I get the following message ~
Hi Donna, We lost Jingles awhile ago. He was on the counter top and just fell off. He couldn't stand up. He lived for a little while before he died. He probably had a heart attack or stroke. That's strange because today he act like he felt good and I even remarked it was unusual that he come in the living room a few times. At least he had a home and plenty food to eat for about 5 years with us and for that I am glad. Love you, Mom.
What is it with pets this past week? 2 people from work besides myself and my mom have lost them. And they are our family. I'm single (accept for my boyfriend being here) and I know Scoobie was so much a part of my life.. He was my walking buddy, my door greeter and so much more. As in life the seasons come and go, so do our beloved pets.
My daughter works at a Best Western Hotel in our local area. This is a conversation she had with a guest this morning:
Wow... just had a 'guest' tell me I'm beautiful but "you'd be so much prettier if you lost weight" and I'm like "I'm beautiful just as i am"
Doesn't she have the right attitude? Aren't we all beautiful the way we are? So why do we keep beating ourselves up? We sometimes rely too much on what others think about us and most likely they aren't even thinking about us that much it's how we perceive ourselves internally that we rely on.
I wanted to say a special thank you to everyone who commented about my loss on Thursday of my beloved Scoobie. There will never be another dog that will take his place.. he was so very special to me and I miss him being here with me so very much.
Love and hugs to all for your concern, prayers and well wishes.
