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.
