No Thank You Holidays

Thursday, November 29, 2012

So according to my Wii, I am 1.5 pounds away from being in the healthy BMI. This will be a first in my life. I am so motivated right now to finish this. It's been a very good week.

We are having a work lunch party for a coworkers birthday on Friday, and our supervisor offered to pick up everyone tacos. I said "no thank you". I told her I'd just bring myself some chicken and eat the salad that I am bringing, and I told her that I was excited to reach the healthy BMI. Her response was "why not just wait until after the holidays".... because there will always be more holidays or celebrations.. because I want this more than I want tacos or cake.... because this is my life, at this moment, and I am not putting anything on hold.... because I know I can do this and I have the momentum right now... because it feels good... because I can.... So, no thank you.... and I will be saying the same thing to those Christmas goodies. I am worth more than health is worth more to me than a cookie. So how about I just finish it (and then keep it up) now... here and now.

    Your blogs sound healthy and positive, even when recounting the behaviors you want to improve. I'm proud of you, Jeannie!

    And your plan sounds great. I let myself get derailed when there are pb-filled pretzel nuggets at work and I'm working 12 hrs and-and-- "everyone else is having those hot Cheetos, yeah, I'll try it even though I've never ever had it or any desire to eat them!"

    That was today. I'll think of you next time, with your determination so plainly and emphatically spelled out here.

    Thank you, my friend.
