Stand in Your Truth

Sunday, January 27, 2013

It is what I needed to hear. The nutritionist was speaking of calories, how many we should eat . . .

Stand in your truth!

The last three weeks since New Year have found me slipping into old habits. Cutting out my exercise for a bit more sleep. Noshing out of bags without measuring, then estimating the damage. Eating while standing up. Eating junk food. Making excuses. Thinking it looks too hard. Avoiding the scale.

That's my truth! Ouch!

It's only as I am honest with myself that I can move forward. That's truth, too!

Hard is okay. I can do hard!
I know how to make the time for a workout.
I know how to measure my food, even how to work treats into my daily calorie allowance.
I know how to satisfy my body's needs without giving in to junk food every day.
I feel better when I eat healthful foods instead of junk.
The scale is a tool to help me reach my goals.
I have a choice! It is a choice, not a sacrifice.
I have never regretted a healthy choice.
I am a finisher.

These, too, are my truths!

I commit to truth, to being honest with myself about my choices and where they will take me.

Stand in your truth!

    I so agree...once I was honest about how much I was eating, it all became clear...

    it's not always easy but .....I too have to state...."I have never regretted a healthy choice" and don't think I ever will..

    when I made healthy choices I feel free, I feel in control.....

    I am here with you dear friend every step of the way

    Too true, the food tracker for me is my biggest tool, thats why my challenge was 6 weeks of FULL tracking, even if I cheated I had to commit down exactly the damage caused.

    So far that has kept me on the narrow, not wanting to really know what the crazy food indulgance really adds up too, nor wanting to track and share it.

    I love "I have never regretted a healthy choice"

    I weighed this morning and have not lost anything for quite awhile now.

    I know what comes next: gain.

    Weighing the same is the emoticon , the alert before gain.

    So I'm with you. It's time to be intentional about The Journey.

    Great blog! emoticon

    Wow, I love this blog. Great self-awareness, insightful reflection, but you're keeping your focus with what your goals are.

    My sister tells me, "You cannot change what you do not acknowledge." Acknowledging things has been so, so hard for me. So what you write really touches me. I have great admiration for your courage and honesty. It takes a brave woman to say, "I am doing this and this."

    Yes, you know what to do. And you have proven skills to carry it out. Your path is a tangible encouragement to me. We will keep inching forward, listening to those with proven wisdom about the quest, making small good choices, trusting God who is so merciful.

    I needed to hear this tonight; thank you truly.

    Yes, sometimes it is hard to cut out an evening snack because one had an extra snack earlier in the day, but it is better to do that than to end up looking like a beached whale.
