Promises I am making to myself

Sunday, November 18, 2012


I will not let people shame me, nor will I allow my pain to be an excuse to quit.

If I mess up and have a really bad morning, day, couple days, week, month--I will NOT give up. I will pick myself up and start again. And again, and again if necessary. Every moment is a new opportunity to turn the page and start fresh.

I will be open to receiving help, open to helping others, and willing to be open about my efforts, successes, and failures.

I WILL TRY NEW THINGS: Foods I think I will hate, new, intimidating exercise regimens

And maybe, just maybe when someone invites me along to do something that I either think I will hate OR I think it will scare the bejeezus out of me.... just maybe I'll put on my big girl panties and give it a shot.... not committing just yet, just promising to think about it!

I will not feel weak for excluding myself from "boot camps"--my heart and my joints can't take it!!

I choose to accept that at my thinnest & most fit, I have always had a table for a butt, "cottage cheese" thighs and as I am built like rectangle on top and a triangle on the bottom, I will probably never ever ever achieve "inner thigh gap" (unless someone has some top-secret insider info they would be willing to share?)

And since I am dieting but NOT DEAD, I vow to enjoy taste as much as I do my other senses ... just with more sense... and in moderation

Thank you, for making all these wonderful tools accessible to EVERYONE!!
