It Works If You Work It Cuz You're Worth It

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Food can definitely be an addiction. I have a difficult time looking at food and not being tempted to eat it. I can only take it for so long before I give in. I cannot say that every time I reach my calorie goal for the day I quit eating. I used to. I am trying to. Sometimes I am still hungry, which is good, because it means I am set up to lose some weight. I will gauge what I eat and only eat a small amount more, being careful not to eat a whole meal. For me, I must mention, reaching my calorie goal is hitting the bottom end of things, not the top. Technically, I am not really going over or seldom do. If I do not track my food, I am guaranteed to go over and probably by a large amount, at least gauging by the scale not moving or moving in the wrong direction. I should not sell myself short, though, in that I no longer care and continue to eat too much on a daily basis. That is not what is best for me. That is what caused my blood pressure to build and for me to lose my self esteem, at least partially. I CAN do this and I am worth it. My grandkids want me to be around for a while. They aren't even born yet. They deserve to get to know me. People are glad that one day, many years ago :), I was born. I have a lot to offer and don't want to screw it up over a doughnut or a piece of pie. How tragic would that be?? Just think how my self esteem is going to grow with every pound lost. Think how much more I will be capable of by killing this dragon. I was worth putting here on this earth so there must be something someone still needs to hear or a hug still needing to be given. I love my job. I want to continue at it as long as I can. I touch lives every single day. It's time I see my own worth and invest in it. As in life there will be bumps, but the valley is not where I make my home. Why? Because I have a life worth living and I'm going to live it for the best and the best is still yet to come!

    The best is yet to come, for sure! You are doing so well... never give up on yourself :) And a little cheat from time to time is necessary so we don't go over the top when we lose control. Sounds like you have things down. Keep up the great work! You can do it :) emoticon emoticon emoticon
