That fatloser program is really an excellent free resource: www.fatloser.com
And today (day 11) I've picked up some new "scripts". I've got them on index cards and am adding them to my Beck stack.
Here they are:
1. Life isn't fair. Success isn't free. Don't get in my own way.
2. I have the ability to handle anything that life throws at me.
3. The universe is conspiring to help me get everything I want.
4. I can achieve anything I focus on with persistence.
Hmm. My life isn't "fair" in so far as I've (frankly) received advantages and benefits that weren't equally distributed on a global basis. Better make use of 'em. But still, success isn't free: I've gotta be 100% committed to it. And not make excuses, not permit myself to be my own worst enemy . . . by feeling sorry for myself.
Whatever goes wrong . . . and things will go wrong . . . I can handle it. Because I am tough.
Besides, if I pay attention I will see that the world IS a place of abundance and love: good things happen to me, and I can use those opportunities to move forward.
If I want to achieve my goals, gotta stay "on message". Compliance with my diet at 100% is the goal, recognizing that I am human, when I make a mistake it's "oh well" and start over. Right away. But not using that "advance forgiveness" as an excuse that I don't need to take responsibility for myself either. Because it's persistence that will get me where I want to go. As far as weight loss/maintenance goes, the scales have no choice: if I stick with the program, the scales HAVE TO COMPLY! No choice, scales!
But: clearly this is a mindset with far broader application than weight loss/maintenance.
The results? It's going to be glorious!!
