Talking myself into it

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

That is what I am doing right now. Talking myself into weight loss, determination, mobility, and exercise. One little baby step at a time.
While waiting for my dh to get to bed last night (actually, after midnight, so technically today), I did about 5 minutes of my back stretching exercises. I told myself that 5 minutes is better than no minutes, and I could add to it in the morning, which I did. I added another 3 minutes.

One minute at a time, I can convince myself that this will work.

Last night, when I felt hunger hit me, I satisfied it with one thin slice of low sodium american cheese, and some water. Then I slept soundly for the night.

One tiny bite at a time.

This morning, my hubby made waffles. Ok, not the most healthy, but I use minimal syrup, and when I got down to the last couple bites, looking at that double stack of 2 inch squares I quit. I said "I AM full, why stuff it in my mouth." Instead I wrapped it in my paper napkin and threw it out.

Look out Daylight! I am out to get you!

    That is right-you can do this one step at a time. And as you did-one bite at a time-I am like you I am getting where I can throw food away!!!
    Good for you.

    Send the left over waffles out to the squirrels and birds. :) They would love that.
    One second, minute, hour or day at a time is awesome! HUGS!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon That's the way to go, one step at a time!

    I often coax myself forward when i get on the bike. "Just 10 minutes - it's better than nothing, and 10 minutes is what they recommend least..." When I get to 9 I start telling myself I can make it to 20...and so on. Little by little! After all, we didn't "plump up" all at once! God bless you on the journey!
