Shutting off voices from the past

Monday, March 25, 2013

I have done at least a hundred different food plans, diet plans, crash and crazy diets in my food history starting at 12 when the boys said I had a Fat ( chest ! I never wondered what was happening? They learned to appreciate me later but by then I had a bad self image and hated my "chest" And there was nothing "fat" about me.
So it took fifty years to start seeing myself for who I am and it has nothing to do with how I look.

Check out my graduation picture on my spark page gallery..
I do not know how to get the pictures from the gallery to here. ( figured it out)
I believe as we loose weight we excavate old hurts... and today... I am doing pretty well on my plan... This is an old hurt that is standing in the way of a healthier me.

    Oh, my you are so right!

    Check out IOWL Team and the podcasts that go along with it! Renee Stephens, Sparking and a lot of internal work has prepared me to make this my best year ever.

    Not that there are not bumps on the road...had a major blow out with my 15 year old daughter just this morning. Her super power is making me angrier than a hornet's nest that has been kicked over.

    I think I feel the need for a podcast coming on...


    Have a great day and keep ...

    We have to acknowledge those voices before we can silence them.
