Its not that its hard

Thursday, July 25, 2013

We know that we can pack our own meals. We know how to set an alarm. We know how to gently scoot our wake up time back an hour over a week by doing it just 10 min. at a time so that it doesn't jar our systems. We know that doing more gooder than badder is more effective than being a hundred percent all the time. We know these things. Usually, it just comes down to: I don't want to.

So, have that conversation with yourself: why? And skip the BS for once. Skip the: its hard' whining. Why? Cause we know thats just obfuscation. Its bogus, so don't lie to yourself this one time. Ask the genuine question: is it the discomfort? The pain of weight loss you are trying to avoid? I fall into that camp myself. I don't really like that old 'slightly hungry and sick to my stomach' feeling. So, I avoid it. I avoid it like it was the worst thing in the whole world.

Of course, it isn't. Thats probably just a hold over from when we were babies and first learning that we had to eat to make that feeling go away. It was more critical at that time to eat. We had to grow. Well, now we can stop. Its ok. We don't have to be growing as much. We are at the point where its ok to have that feeling and not panic.

Its time to set aside the panic. Its time to be honest. Its time to grow up.

    Unfortunately I have hypoglycemia so I can't allow myself to suffer the pangs of hunger as it means my blood sugar is too low and unstable.

    I can totally picture my kids whining "I don't waaaaaaannnnnaaaa" when I come up with some excuse for not eating more nutritiously (my trigger). Argh!
