Today...I am going to start detoxing my life!

Saturday, November 13, 2010

After much thought, my triggers to eat and living an unhealthy lifestyle are....that I have a extremely stressful life, I haven't been a priority for a long time for myself and I have toxic feeders around me.

It is time for me to start detoxing my life of unhealthy/toxic foods, people and attitudes. I want to be happy and healthy for myself and my children.

I have a soon-to-be ex-husband that still tries to destroy the small shreds of self-esteem that I have regained. After being married for over 8 years (separated for over a year), I allowed him to make me feel unattractive and unlovable. This led to an attitude that I no long cared for myself, the weight packed on. So now, when he comes around, he still takes digs at me about my weight and my appearance. I need to cleanse myself of him.

The foods I choose were easy to prepare and no thought was put into what these things are doing to my body. I can't live like that any more. I have to change it, I refuse to let bad food choices kill me. I don't want to die at 40 due to a stroke, heart attack or diabetes caused by poor lifestyle choices.

I also have to work on myself. I AM WORTHY OF LOVE AND I AM BEAUTIFUL (INSIDE AND OUT)!
I have dedicated my life to caring for others, now it is time for me to care for myself.

    What an awesome attitude! I love the idea of detoxing our lives, I think I could use a little of that, too.

    That's the attitude! Ignore that ex if you can. He's just trying to make you feel bad.

Making better food choices and being around happy and positive people will be good for you. Other Sparkers will support you and give good suggestions along the way.

Best wishes on your journey to better health!
Deb :)
