You have it in you to step outside your comfort zone and do one thing differently today.
Just one.
You may surprise yourself with what you thought you couldn't do!

Today I learned my neighbor lady died, due to complications related to obesity and diabetes. My mother lived the last 15 years of her life mostly in a chair or a bed due to complications of obesity before dying last week.
Food addiction has a powerful hold on the mind, even when we know we are literally killing ourselves with the food choices we make.
For me my Sparkpeople BL team is one of the best tools I have to fight my addiction. If it weren't for the Blue Sapphires support, I would be much heavier. I have learned so much researching food addiction, but it doesn't change the fact that I am still responsible for the choices I make.
My focus today is to get out of my chair and do a bit of yard work along with 3 good meals and a healthy snack this evening.
I need to think about the world outside my door a bit more too. Life has more of a purpose than just work and eating. This morning I bagged a meal for a homeless man and used my little Julia's flea medication to treat his poor pit bull that is suffering from fleas. Didn't know what I was going to do with Julia's medication after she passed a couple of weeks ago, but God found a use for it.
Just for today I will take care of my health both physically and emotionally , I will let tomorrow take care of itself.
I wish you peace.

Right now, in this moment.

Saturday, May 24, 2014

I canít think of this as a lifelong dieting process. It gets too overwhelming and I feel defeated before I begin. I have to think of this as a ďRight now in this moment.Ē plan.
What can I do right now, big or small to make a positive difference for my health?
Choose water or soda?
Donít pick up the salt shaker?
Ask myself to wait 15 minutes before eating that little something I think I canít live without?
Take my dog for a 10 minute potty walk instead of letting her out into the back yard?
Maybe my positive choices helped me lose a bit of weight today, and thatís good.
Maybe my positive choices kept me from gaining a bit of weight today, and thatís good too.
All of these little Ďin the momentí choices add up to big changes at the end of the day for me.
And that is how I have to approach this.
Right now, in the moment.

    I agree with you. I can't think about doing this for the rest of my life. I just can't. I have to take it one day at a time.

    I really need to focus on this more, because I get so discouraged when I try for something larger- my history is so poor...I never do keep the positives going. Thank you for sharing this. emoticon

We should all feel this way
