A small revelation...

Monday, February 04, 2013

When I quit smoking, something I'd tell myself when I'd want a cigarette was, "You're a nonsmoker, and nonsmokers do not smoke cigarettes."

So, now I tell myself, "Thin people do not eat an entire bag of conversation hearts." (Although I'm not yet thin. hah!) I'd been thinking I might let myself have "just one bag."

Whew! No one ever said changing who I am would be easy. I've been developing these bad habits for YEARS!

    You're right, we build these bad habits over years, it's not gonna change overnight, or even in a week or two. They say a new habit takes 30 days to become...well....habit. Work on one good "new" habit at a time and good things will start to happen.

    Keep working on it!!
