Triumphant Return Part 2

Monday, April 15, 2013

What does one keep saying as they fall off track and start again, over and over and over. It is scary how quickly a person falsl back into past patterns and the price of that is very high. For myself, I have to face that I have gained over 40lbs, undoing months of hard work. I have a whole laundry list of reasons why it happened, but none of them change the scale.

However, I can't dwell there, instead I have to move forward from this day knowing that I am worth it and I can do it. Instead of focusing on the failures of the past months, I will focus on the success of each new day. I will celebrate myself, my choices and my triumphant return (part 2).

I'll share a quote I found here on the Sparkpeople..

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up!

    The Big Book of AA tells us that compulsive overeating does for us what we cannot do for ourselves and if we don't do it (compulsively overeat), we become restless, irritable and discontented. Eventually, our mind will take us back to compulsive overeating through craving. As a result, we admit that human efforts are useless against the process and we realize that our defense MUST come from a higher power. That is the genius of OA: it recognizes that human effort alone cannot return us to sanity, a sane way of eating or a sane body weight. By working the 12 steps, you practice daily the solution to this seemingly intractable problem!

    If you need a 12-step sponsor, you may be interested in this resource: a telephone meeting on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Dial in at 209-255-1000 P.I.N. code 740111.

    I was amazed by it and I feel like it's really helping me turn things around for good.

    emoticon welcome back!

    It is only a failure if you stay off track. You keep getting back on...that is what is important. Never give are worth it! Today is a new day, new beginning. Focus on Today, the past is the past..can't change it...don't live there. Stay in the moment.


    Have a great day,
