I just read a blog where the advice was simple.... Track what you eat, get sweaty, and do it every day. This really hit home, because his blog was in your face honest. To get this fat, I had to over eat, binge as often as possible, be a huge lump on the couch or at the computer, and make horrid food choices Every Day.... So, to undo the damage, I will need to stop overeating, stop binging, move my heavy body, and make better food choices. Why do I think I will miss the negative eating habits that have put me in this miserable shape? I won't miss the fat, so why miss the food? There is something sick or twisted in my brain that believes I should mourn the loss of fatty fried food, sugared bakery items, and mindless eating in front of the TV, or while reading. So it is time for an update, just like java script or Windows.... Do the better choices, and do them Every day. Do not mourn the empty calories, celebrate the better feeling body. Move the better feeling body. Live the better feeling body. Bend and stretch the thinner belly, thighs and arms. New data, new outlook.
I just read another blog. Maybe it isn't time to fix an old problem, but time to create something new. Yeah. Create something new. Phooie on the past. Piffle on the old, fat me I used to be. Hello, healthy, lower blood pressure, thinner arms, happier Sherry. Older, never to be thin and have a do over of my youth. I am old, but I am going to get older. Get older in a new body. More saggy, but more flexible. More wrinkled, but less flesh. Create a new body for this old gal. I shall create a new mind while I create a new body. Create a New Mind/Body... Every Day. A new me. A better me.
