Weight Loss vs Health Gain
My entire life the constant theme is........... I need to lose weight... I need to lose weight.. I need to lose weight..................
and the entire time the scale has continued to creep up!
My focus has been: I HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT BECAUSE I AM FAT..... and the reality of what has happened is the opposite..... I have GAINED more weight, I have GAINED more self esteem issues, I have GAINED pain and heart ache...........
SO IT"S TIME TO CHANGE MY THINKING!!!!!!!!!
It's Time to GAIN HEALTH!
Instead of always thinking... I need to lose weight, I need to lose weight.... I am going to replace it with----
I want to GAIN HEALTH, I want to GAIN HEALTH!!!! and here are the reasons why
1. I truly do love myself.
2. I truly do think I am beautiful inside and out
3. I truly love life and am excited for the new adventures ahead
4. I truly love my husband and want a better life with him.
5. I truly love God and want to serve him to my full potential!
I am TIRED of feeling bad about myself because I don't Lose weight fast enough.... NO!! I AM STOPPING THIS! I want to GAIN HEALTH, one step at a time!
I also want to be brutally honest with myself and others through this journey..... which is why I am tracking everything!!! Including the doritos I had a few weeks ago.... Including the Yodels chocolate cream things I snuck and ate in my car last week..... I have a feeling that the scale is going to go up a bit when I weigh in tomorrow... but that is ok! I am going to be honest with myself and track whatever the scale says......The Truth Will Set Us Free!!!!!
I had a few bad days last week.... so what? I am movin on!!!!!!!! In the past I would have been so ashamed about the bad choices that I would have completely stopped my journey... but THIS TIME THERE IS NO STOPPING!!!!!!!!! I will be 35 in a week and a half and it's time to grow up and put into practice all the things that I truly do believe.... That God loves me, He has a plan for me which is good, and that I have to take care of this one and only body that I have been given.....
This week I need to exercise more... and I will track whatever exercise I do.... BECAUSE MY FOCUS IS------------------ I want to GAIN HEALTH!!!!!!!!
Keep on loving yourself enough to change! Keep Going Spark Peeps!!!!!!
