Accept The Solution

Okay, from the previous lesson I learned "obesity is a condition" and I'm, Linda puts it, "stuck with it long-term." Hence, the lifestyle change!

Another piece of the puzzle is about ready to fall into place, but in order for that to happen I have to be willing to "accept the solution." This means that I'll be doing what I'm doing now, or the rest of my life. Well, I'm ahead of the game, as I already knew this, by His Grace.

There is no rhyme or reason as to why some people can eat "like a bird," (which is 40 times their weight every day) and never gain an ounce. There is no answer for this. If there were, somebody would be very rich! The main thing that counts for me, is that I choose to do this for the rest of my natural born life!

I have reached my goal weight, and I'm determined to maintain God's success story! I do know that me maintaining God's Temple the way He wants it to be, is a life time commitment, and I don't mind working on this, "forever!" After all, look what He did for me!!!

I am still setting up boundaries and guidelines, as far as my food intake. Which flows right into getting an exercise regime in place, and sticking with it. This is part of the lifestyle change, which is just an ordinary, every day, event to me, which is just my way of life now.

Even though I've made a clear decision about "how to live," I'm human and there may be days or even weeks when I'll let up on my efforts. However, to be successful over the long run, I'll have to commit to always "accepting the solution."

In today's assignment I choose to think about my "condition of obesity." I'm more than willing to accept the changes I'll have to make in order to manage this for life.

I choose to write down my thoughts and how I feel about accepting the solution.

I choose to make a decision about what you want to weigh long-term and record it in my notebook. I choose to add a few thoughts on how I can live in a way that supports that decision.

Be blessed,

    I think the acceptance that it is forever and not a temporary thing is one of "the keys" to being successful with this health issue. Just as someone who has lost a limb or has another chronic disorder has to accept what they will need to deal with and find a way to make it work for them. emoticon

    Honestly, I know some bemoan the "foreverness" of this lifestyle, but to me that means they haven't hit on their solution yet! It is all about having a lifestyle that you can maintain forever! I just have to ask myself "Do I feel better than I did in the past?" Yup! So, it's the right thing.

    There is something very freeing about accepting something and then just dealing with it regularly. Yes, I have obesity as a condition, yes, I have a husband with some emotional craziness, yes, I have a difficult family situation. Okay that being said I will have to live my life accordingly. I have sufficient $ to eat healthy and lots of exercise opportunities, hubby mostly is sweet and loving and he is the one that suffers the most from his emotional roller coaster, and the family, well one just does the best one can as things come up. On the other hand, I am so lucky to be a Bahai and one of a world wide fabulous belief system, I am mostly very healthy, have lots of great friends in the world and on Spark. I am so lucky!!!!!! Thank you Nancy Jean for giving us your wonderful opinion on this book I am reading slowly.

    Wow, you've said it all in this blog. Yes I guess all come to the point of "accept the solution."
The solution is "the life style change." I'm in some what my happy weight. But when I found out or realized the solution, I was kinda disappointed or maybe looking for easy way to keep what I achieved and maintain. I'm working on it and taking day by day for my solution.

Thinking about you all day today with my positive vibe and prayers on your way. Good luck with your Appointment with your doc. **Hugs**
