The last conversation I had with my body was not very pleasant. It all spurred from a bucket of buttered popcorn shared by others at a movie theatre- as if that validates over indulgence-and ended up in abdominal thrusts (not exercise either) .
While walking briskly along the beach, listening to upbeat tunes, I began to reflect on what I REALLY expected of myself.
Do I REALLY expect to reach my goal weight?
Do I REALLY think that I can be positive with so much negativity surrounding me (work)?
Do I REALLY believe I'll get the support I need to persevere and be content with my lifestyle?
Well, you may think I answered "NO" to these questions, but I actually had "YES" answers to MOST of these. I know it will take time (more than I initially wanted), but I CAN/WILL reach my desired weight.
At work, I've decided to just "do my job" and steer clear of ANY negativity as much as possible without giving feedback to validate "rain clouds" [negative people].
Since my family no longer nag and tease about my constant "Sparking", I know they'll support me if no one else will.
As far as being content with my lifestyle. Hey! I have a terrific husband, 3 great kids, and a humorous, spoiled poodle. What more could I ask for?
Oh yeah! As long as the health reports from the doctor remain positive, I'm good with that.
So whenever you feel discouraged, take a brisk walk and have a conversation with your mind. Be sure your lips aren't moving though or onlookers may think you've gone bonkers.
