Amazing how others can form my attitude...

Monday, January 23, 2012

It amazes me how I can read blogs and see countless positive blogs about weight loss, exercise, eating great, body changes...you name every positive thing a person can say...then there is this one negative person out there who says I CAN'T...and those 2 LITTLE words can make me second guess myself...and how all my I CAN'T thoughts pass threw my mind...Now before yall think I'm thinking I CAN'T do this...I'm NOT!!
My thoughts about "diets" is they don't work PERIOD!! Everything in moderating is the key! But as we get healthy we don't crave the crap we ate to get fat! PERIOD! I have tried almost every diet known to man....only to lose the weight and go off the "diet" and gain it back and some! YO-YO sound familiar?
Since I gave up sugar I don't crave sweet stuff and if I do, carrots are sweet....go figure that out!! Sweet potatoes are sweet! Now I won't lie..I do love chocolate, but I now LOVE dark chocolate! Where it use to be bitter it's now sweet...
I still have snacks, I even have cookies, but they ate the healthy snack packs if that's what I want...I would rather eat light wheat crackers and low fat skinny cow cheese, that is my weakness now...lol
It just amazes me I guess how sometimes we think that this journey to a healthy us is a DIET! It's not something to switch off of when we get to where we want to be, it's something we all have to do for the rest of our life to STAY where we end up instead of going back to the weight plus whatever else we gain after we come off the diet.
I have learned that this weight isn't going to come off on it's own...and it sure the heck ain't gonna come off over night like I wished it would! It's hard work getting it off and SOOO easy putting it on!
Tracking everything I eat is my key, counting my points and making better choices have been my secret. I have been doing this weight loss thing for a while and the weight is coming off slowly, and at times I get frustrated but I know that .5 to 2 pounds a week is key to success!
I refuse to let others negativity form me any more! I am me...no one can make me do anything I don't want to do! And for once I WANT to get healthy! FOR ME!! I will do this...one meal, one day, one bottle of water, one healthy meal at a time! To equal 1 pound at a time!
MY LIFE IS WORTH THIS!!

  You've got a great attitude. I have to keep reminding msyelf I'm not on a diet whenever I'm temtped to cut back too far. I'm on a journey to being a healthier person overall not a diet.

    I'm rewording one of your sentences for a new mantra. "The journey to a healthier me...is not through a diet". emoticon

Thank you! Loved your blog!
