    So true. I have also heard the hardest door to get through is your own...when we start a journey, we don't know what we are getting ourselves into, or if we THINK we know....doesn't mean we shouldn't start, but that we need to be prepared for possible outcomes. Life is what you make of it...lemon juice or lemonade!

    Very true, plus.. if you give up, then you have to begin again eventualy, and as it's hardest.. well.. circular logic, right?

    well, this one is tough. I HAVE to eat 5-6 times a day being hypothyroid and a clean eater. I eat really small meals though. A lot of times I'm not even hungry, so I eat for my health having mostly raw, whole foods 60% or more a day.

it's when I'm not eating complex carbs like I should be is when I get into trouble then I start getting CRAVINGS for the wrong foods like sweet things, more carbs like bread (especially a freshly baked loaf) etc...oh, and then If I have a glass of wine or two, then I start eating bad which leads to the above.. it's a vicious cycle!

    It isn't? I think there are a lot of us on that train of subconcious thought. It is a hard one to break too, because it can be so subtle. We think we have it under control and it breaks out again...not an easy fix.
But, maybe we need to do like AA and have a buddy system (yea, like Spark...I know...) when you feel yourself losing control...make a plan to touch base with a buddy. Or, if you have lost control...make a plan to touch base with a buddy and make sure they don't! Might make the difference for the buddy and then for you the next time your buddy calls on you for help!
check out IUHRYTR's Blog...Life is like an empty glass. Maybe that thought will inspire you. I found it refreshing.
Have a good day (translation...don't eat the leather off the bottom of your shoe cause you are so "hungry" you could eat a horse...lol)

stop quitting

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

It's not that I've quit, but I'm sure not focused like I was last summer. I hate that.

  NEEDTOLOSE is a hard act to follow! I love the line from that Tim Allen movie "Galaxy Quest"..."Never give up! Never surrender!"...in fact, I just used that today! :D

Life is in the trying. I'm game!

    I prefer to reference it as digressing, not quitting. As an example, when driving, I am never lost (not due to any special navigation skills, though I have been reading maps and navigating since I was 4--my mother couldn't find her way out of a WET paper bag to save her soul), just temporarily misplaced. It holds with it a sense of being a momentary blip and sounds much more positive than "I am lost". Also, while temporarily misplaced, I do not take both right and left turns. If I turn left, I keep going left...less likely to become MORE temporarily misplaced...you see where I am going here? Our journey, or maybe I should pluralize that to journeys, are the paths we take. All paths lead the same place, but some are much more colorful, more stressful, more rewarding. If we treat our mistakes as rewards for making the wrong move instead of just bad choices, we give ourselves the option of learning from them. You think you had a bad year last year because you didn't lose weight. BUT, you maintained within 2 pounds...that is awesome! And, that was despite all the journeys you took, some that were forced on you. Look at the journeys you took last year and see what ones you can repeat and what ones you need to avoid. Maybe set some new journeys for yourself to see if they fit into the final plan. It would be boring if we didn't fall...we get a closer look at what makes us tick when we do...and we get a chance to find out how special we are to others, because they pick us up and dust us off (IF we let them).
OK...I could talk (write) for hours, but don't want to bore you all, so I am going to leave it at this...you are NOT a quitter, but you do need to discover what road is going to get you on and keep you on the scenic route to a healthier you. Look around and pick your journey!
