Scale Come-uppance ---- Spring Again

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Got up and GOT ON THE SCALE. oy. i knew it would be up. but one is never really ready for the bad news that comes with repeated eating-my-feelings. . . . which i've been doing for a coupla weeks off and on but mostly on.

Up 6 lbs. Crap. And ah well...
Ah well. Yep. It happens... to lots of people. And... armed again with my morning shakes and a sparky attitude (gotta get online every day maybe?).... i am going to take that 6 off.

That's 'the new me'-- It's not that I'll never gain weight, it's that I take action to maintain... which means when I'm up I dial back and get back to basics.

AND.... I have ED feelings about all of this that don't quite fit into the above declaration. I have stress(ors) that I've been eating through... which means I need to do something else with that stress.

Months of struggle... Relationship struggles.... This MOVE to unknown destination... Packing 20 years of stuff....

I HAVE some attachment disorders. I have huge anxiety of the UNKNOWN.
Through out my life I have chosen THE KNOWN THING over the unknown thing... EVEN when it has made my life smaller. And I see it. And I don't know if I can change it. This lack of experience taking risks, this lack of experience jumping-in... this lack of experience... starkly aware of it as my skillsets and toolboxes show their LACK.. even as I must now embrace ABUNDANCE.

Portability. Mutability. Mortality. Possibility. Squared.

Mindfulness. Meditation.

Therapy with Niquie was good again. Lots of talk about my relationship with Joe. And my family of autonomous floating other people -- my fantasies of the past as it might have been different (or not, according to her)...

Smallness. Largeness.
Lack. Abundance.

Negativity. Gratitude.

Negative posture or languaging is a dial-in attitude that manages Lack, adapts to Lack, Invites Lack, is a coping skill to deal with Lack... even while complaining about it.

"What you focus on is what you get".

We learn that here in Sparkville especially. GOALS and Positive Attitude.... is what carries us happily forward at whatever speed.

The speed of my road toward a new home, or as guest in the homes of others... is daunting.
The speed of maintaining Food/Exercise Routines.... is a comfort I CHOOSE TODAY (it is a smaller focus.... details.... and I need it today).

Routine. Is not smallness. Is it? It can be, but doesn't have to be.

THere is enough chaos in my world. Letting my food choices become chaos is TOO UNSETTLING too dangerous.

Onward and Downward.
Look out SIX ... You are out a here.....

    There is so much we cannot control in this world. So much that's simply out of our hands. You will take control of your nutrition. You will care for your wonderful, precious self with healthy food and choices that reflect self-love. Those silly ol' 6lbs ain't got nuthin' on you!!! And soon they'll be off you.

    I wish you strength and positivity in dealing with all the big changes in your world.
    You can do this!

    You can do this. I am constantly amazed by the insight shown by my fellow sparkers and the raw honesty and emotion. The unknown is definitely scary, but as someone who did a huge life transition a year ago, (and yes had a 30 lb. emotionally overeating gain to show for it), my life is so much better now than it was before. So even though I fought hard to get those 30 lbs. back off and continue on my way down, and though it was really tough at times, I chose me over the food. I chose exercise over emotional eating. I chose light over darkness. I chose to be positive rather than negative. Living life mindfully, honestly and respecting myself is making a huge difference. Good luck to you!
