Day Two-- Operation: Fit.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

No changes yet, but I'm feeling enthused about this. Also, my motivation grew a bit when I decided to do this. Maybe it's because I want this shirt to fit, and it's for me and not anyone else. I even ate a good breakfast, one slice of french toast and 2 slices of bacon; two things I absolutly love but I didn't go over board with them! I even chased it down with a cup of water and Im working on my second cup now!

It is really amazing at how much can change when you decide to do something for yourself. Now that Shawn broke up with me I no longer feel obligated tochange things for him or for anyone else. Even now that I have a new boyfriend, I dont feel the need to change myself to make him happy. I'm happy right now. Seriously, I feel so much better! I don't feel like I'm being held back, oppressed by some unseen censor, or by lack of encouragement.

Even though I'm not noticing the changes in how I look I am starting to see changes in the way I think. The urge to be independant, and to have this 50/50 relationship, and just wanting to be happy and live a life that I can be proud of. A stong body is a strong mind, and I want that. This isn't about how a shirt fits on me, or if I look good to anyone else, those are just pluses. I want to be strong, physically and mentally, especially if I'm going to get into paranormal investigating, I need to be strong and able to face fears.

    A major change in your love life is a great way to start new habits! I've lost almost 40lbs since my relationship ended in June, and it's been (almost) effortless. Good luck to you!

    Congratulations on your journey to a healthy lifestyle. I feel sooooo much better since I started my journey. I am eating healthier, exercising, and have tons of energy. I never would have done yard work before I started this new lifestyle.

    I have loss weight, feel more confident, and don't feel that my only options are in the plus size of department stores.

    You should be so proud of yourself!! Everything you're doing and the reasons behind them are going to help you change your life for the better. You can only do this for YOU and when you are good and ready, not because someone else wants to change you. Congrats and good luck, you really can do this :)

    Knowing your goal, and knowing you're doing it for you, are powerful things.

    I spent years listening to the Big Meanie who lived in my brain and always put me down. That changed about 15 years ago. The voice has become my Inner Coach. Sometimes it's harsh, but it's mostly encouraging. I prod myself when I need prodding and nurture myself when I need nurturing. (I wouldn't let someone else get away with tearing me down; why would I do it to myself?)

    Keep up the good work. If you respect yourself, it's far less likely you'll let others treat you poorly.
