All Important

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I am reminded of this key to my success every single day. For me, there is no greater lesson, and one I have to learn over and over again ---- than loving myself. When I love myself, I respect myself enough to call myself out when I am off kilter, or giving into bad choices, because it seems easier at the time.

"Seems easier" like grabbing whatever without thought and putting it in mouth, does not take into account, how that so-called morsel will end up detracting me from my goals, adding fat to an already extended belly, more wearing and tearing of my joints, and worse yet how it chips away at my self esteem for not being courageous enough to stick to it just for me.

Victory is mine when I take ACTION, no matter how small it might be or seem to plant steps in the right direction and I will get to admire my growth in a good way!

Here is the tiny path that I am following now. I am not eating a daily scone for breakfast. Some days, I am still going to have them, but I did not today, and I did not yesterday, and slowly, ever so slowly I am flexing my muscles to do more, bigger, and better, and above all, to believe in myself that I am worthy, capable and by gosh, I am going to do it, even if it is just pushing away one scone at a time.

    So true, our bodies are what carries our soul. And our souls are perfect. Our minds are the strongest part of us,and what we believe is what we are. emoticon

    Scones are soo good but so high in calories that I am glad you are not eatin them daily. Thay way you have a lot of room for many other things to eat,
Keep up the good work.
