Our thought process is like a two edged sword , It can cut both ways . I learned this this week ! The scale wasn't budging and that lead to a lot of negative thoughts and also amnesia . I am a failure . always will be a failure , I am ugly , disgusting . and also I forgot I lost 40 pounds . I forgot how much weight 40 pounds is . I forgot that I threw out a lot of my clothes because they are too big for me now . but then I think God gave me a message because I KNOW IT DIDNT COME FROM ME ! not with all the negative thoughts I have been having lately ! I always tell my son "When God wants to communicate with us , He starts out with a whisper , then if you don't listen he Yells ! and then if you still dont listen HE KNOCKS YOU OVER THE HEAD WITH A SLEDGE HAMMER .. So listen to the whispers if you can. " I think he got sick of me insulting what he made , so this time He didnt have to shout or hit me over the head , I listened to his whisper.
I was putting some sunscreen on and all of a sudden I went ! Wow , I feel muscles in my legs I never felt before ! Then as I was doing my arms I again said Wow more muscles I never felt before ! As I got dressed I put on a pair of shorts that last year would have looked like daisy dukes on me but this year they are baggy ! Something in my mind told me to remember the day I bought those shorts.. and how disapointed I was that they were way to revealing for my taste , and now they hang on me and nothing clings !The other day I had a sundae and I thought omg ! I over ate I blew it I am a failure again but when I came back and tracked my food on Spark , I saw I had 23 calories left for the day ! Ive decided not to be hard on myself . To make smaller goals and to listen to the whispers and say to myself everytime I have a negative thought , That thought is making you gain weight ! get rid of it ! Not only that but this morning I got on the scale and I Finally lost a pound .
My advice is to anyone who wants it , I was eating on track and exercising I didnt lose . The fact that I realized some positive truths about me this week was what made me lose that pound ! So please realize that your mind can play a huge difference in your health even if you are eating and exercising well. Please remember your accomplishments . Start looking for even the tiniest changes for the better and do not be hard on yourself ! I wish that every single person here will meet their goals because if we all feel better about ourselves , its the first step in making this world a better place for everyone ! End of sermon !
