The Devil made me do it....

Thursday, October 03, 2013

I am sharing this from a recent BLOG response I gave to my SPF. She talked about being "BRAVE" and even posted a link to a video and song, which I thought was so cool. So here is my response......

You ARE Brave!!! I honestly feel that when we get to a POINT, our bodies and minds kinda play tricks on us, yeah like the devil doing his deed. But the point is, we all have these moments in time. Set backs, medical issues, delays, then that pesky devil creeps up and tests us. I have experienced the same thing. Right now, after MY LONG medical recovery issues, I have been on a plateau and it is driving me nuts. So trust me, I get your problem more than you know. My plateau has made my weight fluctuate up 6lbs, down 3, up 2, and so on. I also realize that with my "fretting about it" as actually KEPT THE WEIGHT ON, like that stress factor, our bodies keep that "fighting weight" on. Sounds silly, I know, but trust me, I have figured this out more than 100+ times, and each time, it all boils down to the same thing. My Serenity Prayer comes in REAL HANDY about now! Which I sincerely, say EVERYDAY, as a meditational tool for me.

So here is "my plan" ....I will not QUIT, I will keep eating as healthy as I can, I WILL Keep exercising, and eventually that pesky little imp will decide to leave, and I will WIN!!! After all, I can and will be BRAVE!!!!

    How true is that!
I know that you will break through this plateau and come out slimmer and happier on the other side.
Bless you!

    Ok, the new emoticon is just the right response to your blog: emoticon

Never, ever quit. It may get frustrating, but I always think to myself that it would be 10 times worse if I weren't practicing a healthy lifestyle.

HUGS and keep pushing.
