Uh Oh, Reality Check!

So, time to hit the ol' gym. Actually, I did go last Thursday, for the first time in forever-and-a-half. I was proud that my body responded well, like it's memory kicked in and I wasn't dying on the elliptical or anything. I'm disappointed in myself that I have been having waaaaay too many treats and nowhere near the amount of fresh fruits and veggies that I should have. I guess that I should have faith that my body will take care of itself by dropping the pounds when I choose to treat it in the manner to allow it to do so.
This brings about an interesting point I would like to share. So about a year ago, I had a friend of mine hypnotize me for weight loss. Long story short, it has been helpful in many areas, especially taking the "edge" off of wanting to eat irrationally (like way too much candy or something, out of stress). During one session, she took me through a visualization where I had to package up my excess weight (stay with me here, I know : ), and put it in a machine that shot it out into space. I said to myself, silently, of course, "Hey! That's MY weight, and I'm not going to shoot it anywhere!". Hmmmm, opened me up to the possibility that I have been holding onto this weight for some reason, though haven't the slightest why.
