I decided to set my goal 'over-the-top'. Now I believe I can get to any weight I want and be naturally slender. I've got to do strength training and make my muscles work so that whatever weight I am, I am strong. I am releasing the squishy parts to the universe day by day. This is so funny to me. I used to set my goal to what I thought I could achieve. Now I set my goal to a previously unthinkable number. The scale is gone from my daily life and I will check my weight every few weeks when convenient. ( that scale held me back, but I didn't believe it until now).
I am eating slowly, consciously and loving the food I eat. I'm only eating when I am truly hungry. I only eat 'just enough' so I feel comfortable. And I'm keeping track. I am no longer using food for entertainment or to relieve boredom. I am only eating food to nourish my body and I pay attention to messages my body sends me. I forgive myself and others for my Fat Story/Machinery and I affirm that all of this I can do. I am grateful that my life is full of joy, even though I know there are also speed bumps along my path at times ( like this winter).
Best wishes to everyone on Spark People! I send you encouragement! You can make your life wonderful and you deserve to have it all.
