Moving the number on my scale in the right direction now!

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

About 10 days ago I chose to start working very hard at my weight lose journey… I still have the stress issues in my life, but I am changing my attitude to that stress. Eating my way out of the stress was not working and I faced that fact it never will. I decided I needed to take care of myself at the same time I have the stress issues…. So far so good. It has only been about 10 days and I am doing great. I have dropped 2 of those ugly pounds I had gained. But more important to me is working on my "Heart Health" instead….

My Mom died of a heart attack when I was only a very young adult, and as I am growing older, the focus on my heart is becoming more important to me then the number on my scale…I have one grandchild, and the second one is due this Spring…. I want to be here as long as I can to see them and watch them grow up….

I love the Judith Beck Book , Training your Brain to think like a thin Person…. It is a cognitive way of thinking about your weight, but you could use it for other things in your life you want to change…. THis time I have added to the weight lose desire, also my healthy heart desire…. I am working the program and I am going to continue this journey. I am taking it day by day, and building on a string of good days… I am also ok if I choose to eat something on a special occasion is I want…. I can do anything I want if I just keep my silly little brain in the right thinking mode!!! I know I can, and I know I am worth it... emoticon

    One Day At A Time, all those days add up whether you are on plan or not. Yesterday is gone, you can't do anything about it. Tomorrow isn't here, deal with it when it gets here (a vital attitude when in stressful situations, believe me, I know). Today is the one day you have, and there isn't anything you can't do for Just One Day.

    I've heard of that book. Maybe I'll get it from the library. Thanks!

    I think you are on the right track. Try to stay in motion. If not exercising, march when you brush your teeth, wash dishes, etc. Those steps add up. You move so many different muscles.
