Trying to Forgive Myself!

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I blew it. I want to blame my almost out-of-memory computer, my lack of time, and a hundred other reasons that I got off my journey away from excess fat. I haven't stopped trying hard to eat healthier or choosing really good-for-me healthy foods. It is my lack of portion-control and my willingness to side-step off my path to wellness. These are areas of my hectic life that I must grasp a good handle on.
I am getting ready for a lot of major life changes and a big move....again. So here I begin, once again, to re-invent myself. I am so glad to have my Spark pals to help support me when I really mess things up. I can't begin to tell you all how much I am thankful for all your encouraging words.
If I am in and out a lot for the next couple of months, it will be due to the move and the changes that I happening around me. I hope everyone will be patience with me.
I will try to be patience with myself. I will try for slow, small steps to succeed with my weight loss goals. I will try to forgive myself. I will move onward and smile while I do that. Bless everyone!

    You are not perfect and sometimes we need to learn an important lesson, so we falter. Now you have a wonderful opportunity to learn from this, forgive yourself and move on.

Love yourself--you can love others, forgive others--why not do the same for YOU?

    If only you can figure out how to lift your eyes to the future goal to look past the urgent desire for the thing in front of you.

    Sometimes we just need to stop what we are doing and get real. And you are clearly on that path! Awareness is always the first step. Good for you!

    Sounds to me like there is nothing to forgive but the part of you that keeps beating yourself up :) That part needs to be forgiven for jumping in and adding more stress to your already hectic life because it thinks that will help. It just doesn't know any better!!

If you are anything like me ( or the former me - I am changing :), one indulgence or act of unconscious eating sets me off down the spiral of disappointment in myself that leads to giving up because I clearly don't have any self control and the beating up begins :) That's my gerbil wheel that I have recently sent to the garage sale cause it is now worthless to me. My new me recognizes that my unconscious (or even intentional) foray into indulgence is actually a good flag for me that I am feeling out of control and need to stop and notice what is causing it. Rather than being angry with myself, I can congratulate myself for taking a step to look after myself and then choose another way to do this nurturing that I clearly need.

Sorry if this sounds like crazy talk...just my transition to a new way of looking at the vicious circle that your blog reminded me of.

Hope your move and other life changes go well :)

    Sometimes life just takes over. You are doing your best given all you have going on.
