Being creative.

Sunday, May 05, 2013

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.

    I wrote on my blog the scale was stressing me out and quite a number are in that same mind state.
    I am eating well , not perfect but no processed foods and certainly no junk food. Rarely ever was there junk food.
    I am taking a wait and see attitude I will get weighed when my Dr wants another A1c. Well done. We have to be in charge of our body and only put what is in tune with your bodies needs. Pat in Maine.
