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...
