It's SO important that we take it easy on ourselves! We are only human after all. So take it moment to moment. Baby steps will pave the way on your journey. Just remember YOU ARE WORTH IT and YOU CAN DO IT! Keep a picture of something-you at your heaviest, you at the weight you want to reach, an out fit you want to get into-SOMETHING and keep it with you as a reminder to stay on track. But never give up on yourself. We fall down, but we get back up again!
This sparkmail was in my inbox today. I found it very poignant.
Give it your all...
If you can do your best and forget your worst, you've already got a head start on tomorrow. As long as you lay it out there every day, you can relax when yesterday is behind you. Of course, the only way this will happen is if you give yourself permission to forget. You can use this approach in anything: Pick up a problem, do what you can with it, and then put it down. Work your tail off at the office, then leave it there (the work, not your tail). Deal with a personal crisis by finishing off one day at a time. There's a great deal of satisfaction in leaving things be for a moment. There's a great deal of freedom in knowing that you could do no more. And there's a great deal of success awaiting the person who gives it her all, no matter what.
Have a great weekend and remember YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
