The hubs and I watch a lot of Ancient Aliens on The History Channel. We find it amusing and entertaining. However, what really rubs me the wrong way is that the show states on many occasions that "ancient astronaut theorists contend" that ancient humans were incapable of building structures like the pyramids, and that aliens had to have helped them.
We weren't GOOD enough or SMART enough or SKILLED enough to complete complex tasks.
Just like ancient humans, each and every one of us is CAPABLE of losing weight. We just need to put our gosh dang MINDS to it, darn it! (Imagine this sentence as a sailor would say it, because I'm self-censoring here.)
YOU CAN FRICKIN' DO IT.
Yes we all suffer self-doubt sometimes. But if you don't think you're capable of great things you're never even going to stinkin' TRY.
Do you want to give someone else credit for something YOU did? HECK NO!
Was it your trainer who pushed you to run that extra mile? Was it aliens who held you down and forced you to eat only one portion of dinner and stay within your calories? Was it God that stuck a funnel in your throat to get in those 8 glasses of water today?
IT WAS YOU, DUMMY! YOU DID IT! YOU'RE CAPABLE AND YOU FRICKIN' DID IT!
Give yourself the dang credit. Because if you realize you're the one who did it in the first place, then you can convince yourself to continue. You gain the CONFIDENCE to beat this weight loss game.
Success LEADS to MORE SUCCESS. Confidence leads to BELIEVING you can SUCCEED.
So stop whining, put one foot in front of the other, weigh and measure your food, drinking your water, and TAKE OWNERSHIP FOR WHAT YOU DO.
Who's fault is it when you fail? You blame yourself, right? But who gets the credit for all the good you do. SOMEONE/SOMETHING ELSE. No, you did the good stuff too. You're responsible for it all. OWN IT!
