I am working on two attitudes that are causing me some problems with my weight management. Right now I am a healthy BMI. I would like to be thinner though. I'm talking about 14 pounds. It's not a lot of weight. I have to stop beating myself up about it. It's stupid.
Well, the first attitude I am slipping into is self-pity. I should be grateful for my health and my life. Sometimes I feel sorry for myself because I don't have the most glamorous life and job. I don't have lots of extra income to spend and save. I'm not known for high intelligence or great beauty. Big deal! I'm not going to sit around and feel inferior. As Popeye says, " I yam what I yam."
The other attitude I have been slipping into is the desire for more. More food, more stuff, more attention more love, whatever. The never enough syndrome. I have more than enough. I need to practice gratefulness.
