Do you have the guts???

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Do you have the true grit that it takes to step on the dreaded scale???? emoticon

Well. I do. I will step on the monstor tomorrow.

I haven't been feeling well. My insides have been tied in knots for no obvious reason. Normally, I can point to something that I have been eating. This time, I don't know why. sigh. That reminds me I need to take some magnesium.

I am finally back at my workouts. I've been listening to Sandra Ahten's Reasonable Diet for motivation, especially the three episodes titled 'I'm not giving up on myself.' I feel as though I have been giving up for a while now, and I'm not interested in continuing down this path. I don't want to give up on myself.

I have been listening to some spiritual podcasts. I've been looking for meaning in my life. I don't have what might be considered a conventionally successful life. I'm not married, I don't have any children, I live with my parents, I'm coming up on my 35th birthday. I worked incredibly hard in my twenties toward an end that I achieved and I discovered that I don't really like Hollyweird, so I came home. I went to work for myself, started my own business, and the economy took a nose dive. (Have we hit bottom yet?) My health took a nose dive, I was terribly ill for a couple of years. I have through luck, research, intelligence, and tenacity, figured a way out of most of it. I have not yet discovered the next chapter in my weight loss journey. That is the next thing. The one thing that I know for sure is that without weighing in, without a food journal, and without being dedicated to living, none of it works. I get sicker, I get heavier, I get more and more depressed.


I'm not giving up on myself.
I'm not giving up on myself.
I'm not giving up on myself.

~Say it with me now~

I'm not giving up on myself.
I'm not giving up on myself.
I'm not giving up on myself. emoticon

    I'm not giving up on myself either. I plan on having a really great Spring and I know you will as well.

    I don't get on the scale at home.... I have a doctor's appointment on March 18th. That's three months from my last visit and I'll get on his scale and we'll both take a peek!! I know that I've lost because I've had to buy new undies and new slacks and new tees... when things are so big that they look bad, it's a good thing!!

So, don't worry....just do it....we' here for you.
