I have been thinking about how I got so fat and why I never realized WHY it was happening until it was really far gone. What I have decided is that a major factor for me has been CLUTTER - clutter around me, demands made on me and my feeling that I just couldn't live up to expectations, chatter in my head, disorganization in my world.
For a while now, I have been dealing with some of the clutter - trying to stop the chatter - to quiet my mind but also to make my surrounding a tiny bit less chaotic. It seems to help with my weight BECAUSE I am feeling less stress - or at least coping with it better. Sleep, spiritual support, and relaxation have all played a role in helping me to deal with the temptations that foods presents. Exercise has helped me to keep me from focus on the food. Stopping to focus my mind BEFORE I react has helped to make healthier choices and to see the consequences for my choices.
I am really tired now. I need to get a bit of sleep.
Blood sugar is good. BP is good. I feel like I am making some healthy choices, therefore I am doing "GOOD"
Good night all. Sleep well. May the angels surround you with a screen of protection and serenity so that you will rest completely safe in the understanding that you are loved, you are ENOUGH, you are GOOD ENOUGH, WORTH ENOUGH, and LOVED ENOUGH to allow you to wake in the morning totally refreshed and ready to start a new week with hope, love, and kindness. Remember that each person you meet is ALSO ENOUGH - what an amazing thought - EACH OF US IS TRULY ENOUGH and is LOVED ENOUGH. WOW - can you imagine anything more AWESOME than that?
