Trust in yourself

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Ever do this? Just stand with the door open waiting for something to jump out at ya but it never does. Yup your just bored not hungry. If you stand there long enough you will be tempted to grab and go but what you get won't fix what is wrong.

Self-trust is the first secret of success. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote was on one of my team threads. Is this not what a lot of us don't have? I myself don't trust myself so I tell all who will listen about my goals. I have informed those I work with that if they see me with something I shouldn't have they are to take it from me. I need to be accountable to me but I sometimes need a little help from friends.

The weekend was nice. the weather here in the south was awesome today so my hubby and I headed out early got our groceries and got back home by eleven so to enjoy the sunshine. I got a new bird feeder (you know your getting old when you enjoy watching the birds) and I got outside and got it set up and the old one filled. Now my spring friends have a bit to keep them coming back.

So as I head off to finish my evening I want to let my fellow team mates on WW that i'm still holding strong. Day three and i'm planning better, eating better, and still getting the exercise in. Never think it can't be done because YOU can do it. Remember: "Self-trust is the first secret of success. - Ralph Waldo Emerson"Trust in yourself and in the process.

my pitfall is not so much one of trust, but falling for the idea that I need instant gratification

    I was once tempted to put up a small sign on my cubicle that read

someone in the office always had snacks available and people hate to binge alone
