DAY NO MORE DEPRIVATION.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

AT THE BIRTHDAY PARTY YOU HOSTED FOLKS WERE HAVING CAKE AND ICE CREAM. YOU FELT LEFT OUT AND AFTER THE PARTY was OVER YOU TIP TOED INTO THE KITCHEN AND HAVE 3 PIECES OF CAKE.

DO YOU GIVE IN AND EAT BECAUSE YOU FEEL LEFT OUT??

STOP AND THINK ABOUT THE WORD DEPRIVATION....

IS IT HORRIBLE? DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO PUSH YOU OF YOUR PLAN??

LIKE IT OR NOT TO BE SUCCESSFUL ON GETTING HEALTHIER YOU HAVE TO SET BOUNDARIES AROUND YOUR EATING. IT MAY TIMES WHEN YOU HAVE TO TURN DOWN THE CAKE.

LIFE INCLUDES DEPRIVATION...................
...........
IN YOUR DAILY LIFE DEPRIVATION IS A FACTOR AND HAPPENS EVERYWHERE. YOU'LL DEPRIVE YOURSELF FROM DATING IF YOU ARE MARRIED..ETC.

DEPRAVING YOURSELF OF DESSERT MIGHT MEAN THAT YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL MANAGING YOUR WEIGHT.

WHEN YOU FEEL DEPRIVATION REGARDING FOOD LOOK AT THE BENEFITS YOU GET AS A RESULT OF YOUR ACTIONS.

DECIDE WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT--LOSING WEIGHT OR EXPERIENCING THE TEMPORARY PLEASURE OF EATING CAKE.

WEIGHT DEPRIVES YOU TOO.

MY LIST OF HOW WEIGHT DEPRIVE ME OF.

1. IN MY CASE BEING HEAVIER THAN I NEED TO BE CAUSES ME TO VISIT THE DR MORE SPEND MONIES ON PRESCRIPTIONS BECAUSE OF MY HEALTH CHALLENGES.

2. SPEND MORE MONIES ON CLOTHES THAT ARE PLUS SIZED. NOT FAIR BUT THEY COST MORE.

3. CAN CAUSE ME TO FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE WEARING CERTAIN CLOTHES.

4. DIE BEFORE MY TIME IF I DO STAY ON TOP OF MY CARE.

I CAN LIVE WITHOUT FRIED CHICKEN SOMETHING I THOUGH I'D DIE WITHOUT. I DO NOT MISS.

PIZZA I NEED TO GET RID OF.

AT FAMILY GATHERING I CAN BE IN CONTROL AND STILL ENJOY THE FAMILY. I CAN CONCENTRATE ON THEM AND NOT THE FOOD.

THOSE WHO KNOW ME KNOW I AM NOT A HOPELESS PERSON. THIS EXERCISE REQUIRED ME TO MAKE A LIST AND I DID.

WITH GOD ON MY SIDE I AM STRONGER, WISER AND DETERMINED.

    Amen!
The results of self-control brings so many rewards! emoticon Especially when there are so many other options when it comes to how we eat and what we like. No excuses necessary. Great blog!
Be Blessed!

    Pat, you are far from hopeless. Indeed you are courageous and determined, and like all of us, on a learning path. "Progress, not perfection" emoticon

    Not to belittle what you said..... I do fully understand where you are coming from, but do you have to completely deprive yourself? Why not everything in moderation? Would just a bite do to help you feel as though you are a part of the celebration so that you would not have to be deprived? Can you really give up the things that you love forever? I think it's important to try to practice allowance but control... just a thought. I hope I have not offended. emoticon

    You CAN DO IT! You said the key words at the end of your blog, "with God on my side". Go to Him in prayer and He will see you through. emoticon and emoticon emoticon . I am cheering you on.
