Almost caught up..

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Playing catch-up on my work load is going along nicely. Today as part of some of my store audits I had to inventory certain items in back stock. Inventory part is never a fun part of these audits, but in one store I had to climb a rickety old ladder(the type that is on wheels but is supposed to lock into place) to a 2nd story loft, then squeeze my big butt between stacks of boxes on both sides. The only way through was sideways! with the fear of causing an avalanche of boxes & products. Finally got the inventory part done, then come back down the rickety old ladder (of course the person that held it for me going up was gone by the time I got done). It really hit me though. How much easier would this have been if I wasn't carrying around all this extra weight.

The old me would have looked at this as a sign that maybe I should give this up and go back to sitting at a desk, 8 hrs a day, and end up tired & stressed each night which would lead to eating more and of course, I'd be just to tired to exercise after sitting in that chair all day!

The new me looks at this and thinks "the next time I have to climb up here, at least I'll be thinner and able to fit down that cardboard tunnel, and I won't have to worry about my weight being to much for that stupid ladder"

By the way: the ladder is safe, it just doesn't feel it

I am changing... not just the weight I'm losing on my body

The "stinkin' thinkin' " that has kept me fat & unhappy with it, is finally being eliminated.

I am making changes for me!
