One day, one moment at a time.

Monday, February 11, 2013

Sitting here this morning thinking about my strategy for today and decided that I must approach this in much the same manner that I approached getting clean and sober a few years ago. One day at a time. As I think back on that period of my life, I seem to recall there were many many days that I couldn't face a whole day at a time. I had to just learn to go one minute at a time. This is where I am in my weightloss journey. Taking one minute at a time. In this moment of today, I am forging ahead. What will I be doing in the next moment? Well, only time can tell. But, for this moment, I am strong and focused and moving forward. Doing what I have to do to make it to the nextminute, day, week, month and year. That is all we are promised and all we can control. THIS MOMENT! What will you do with your moment today?

    Good for you to look at the whole picture! I find it interesting that people who use drugs and alcohol are addicts but society never look at food, love, hoarding (and can we go on here?) as addictions/illness?

    lations on being able to overcome your addictions. I hope our health system will wake up and allow others to do the same thing!

    I believe it is an addiction and we have to approach it the same way- one step at a time emoticon

    So very very true - this moment is all we have. Wonderful point of view, and what will get you through the tough times. You're already doing so well.

    Sometimes I think food is way more addictive than alcohol because it is everywhere. People do not pay as much attention to someone eating, but it is addictive just the same. My husband went from the addiction of drinking to the addiction of eating. It is awesome that you recognize that each addiction is a struggle all the same, and you are determined to be free of all addiction instead of swapping one for another. You sound like a very smart person.

    I am the daughter of parents with addictive personalities. I too struggle with taking each moment as it comes. I commend you on picking yourself up and moving forward, and congrats on being clean and sober. It's not easy, but it IS worth it. YOU are worth it.
    I would be honored to be a part of this with you, so please feel free to add me as your friend and I will add you back if you do.
