It's Going to Be Glorious!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

That fatloser program is really an excellent free resource:

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!!

    Thank you for the Day 11 highlights!! I benefit so much from, but it won't play here at home. I enjoy listening at the library, but only got through Day 4 so far.

The "straight talk" is just what I need to hear!

    Thanks for the reference to the website. I'll have to check it out.

And I understand completely about that "advance forgiveness." I have used it several times; it has a way of getting me in trouble.

You ARE strong - and you CAN handle anything that comes your way.

Here's to those glorious results that are on their way!!

    "use those opportunities to move forward."
Love those words.
Sometimes we have to look for opportunities or make the opportunity.
You are just the lady to make all that happen.
