Dare to Dream

Thursday, December 06, 2012

A thought crossed my mind today and I pondered the possiblities of it....I was given some things of my sisters after she passed away, one of the things was this full length denim coat, I bet she paid a pretty penny for. Its sitting in my closet....its a size 14. I am currently in a 5X, could I ever fit in this coat? I don't think I've been a size 14 since 1972.
My sister was not a size 14 but all her clothing was that size, she was much much thinner. She had body issues, I have body issues...different end of the spectrum I guess.
Usually when such thoughts cross my mind I scoff and think...."no way will THAT ever happen"
But today I allowed that dream to tumble around in my head....would it not be the most wonderful thing to be a normal size" Could it be possible and it struck me.........I am the only thing standing in the way of realizing that dream. I just need to do it for crying out loud!!
This is all coming on the heels of a little "accident" I had last night with some chocolate chips.
I took them out of the freezer last night to do some holiday baking and kind of had a "run in " with them. Such a sugar addict I am! But I'm back up on "the horse" today, had a good healty bowl of oats this morning and have a nice diet friendly lunch planned.
My monthly weigh in at my Dr.'s is on Monday. I really want to stay on track.

    A person must dream and have visions in order just to live life day to day and have fun living and enjoy life and to be the best that they have been created to be.

    My goodness, dream on, have visions of you wearing that wonderful coat and see yourself walkzting around in it and also confess the action of being able to wear that silly ol' coat and looking smashing, gorgeous, and delectable in it as you are wearing it and you will be greatly surprised how this will turn out in your favor of losing weight down to that size. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Please a size 14?! That's easy! I see you in a size 8 or even 6 you'll have to get that denim coat taken in by the time your done! we all have our run ins with those sneaky chocolate chips from time to time but you did great! You saw it probably wasn't the most healthy thing to do but you didn't dwell on it you just made sure that your next food choice was a healthy one KUDOS! I can already see your attitude changing in your blog entries and I am amazed. Stay motivated and stay strong you are such an inspiration to me.

    Get a plan you can live with, not just today and tomorrow, but a plan that you can see yourself working with for a long time. Something that inspires you (do you love to swim? What about dance? Or maybe riding?) so that you will WANT to continue, even when you're tired or angry. Make food choices that are good and healthy, but allow for treats in moderation, be they cookies or wings -- just remember to preportion them!

    Good luck!
