Mimi,
I understand your use of pay. It isn't really improper. All behaviors have consequences and as a personal believer in the concept of personal responsibility I look at all we do as a consequence or result of our choices. No distinction.

On another note, your musings are very significant. Being positive as positive as we can, is healthier in many ways. Stress levels come to mind and there are physical advantages. However, our lives are not always perfect. Holding onto the negative feelings, and pretending all is rosy is a form of denial, and not good for an individual. It feeds upon itself, and creates stress and further negative responses which prevent us from optimum health and well-being in all areas of life. I believe it is better to get it out, in whatever way works, and then it is easier to let go, and a more positive attitude will return. emoticon

Teresa

Thank you, Teresa

I think I'm using the word PAY in relating to the sentence "there is no FREE lunch.
If I decide to get off plan, it will cost me later.
When I get off plan, I may gain 2-3 pounds. In order to loose these pounds, It takes hard work amd great discipline to get back to where I was before the "party".
I understand that the word pay is not as positive one....
Which word would you be using instead? Thank you.

I know we benefit from being positive. It is funny how in WW meetings, the will to be positive all the time is in the air. But some of us, speak our mind, and the truth is not always "pink".
I love the honesty.

I'm getting totally off the subject...sorry...

Have a wonderful evening
I always appreciate your great input. Keep it up.

Excellent practice! emoticon However, as quickly as you are able to return to your healthy practice I would question the term PAY, As a lifestyle I agree it is definitely necessary to not practice deprivation. Keep it up! emoticon
I appreciate your kind words. emoticon
I wish you success as you continue to pursue your maintenance goals.

Teresa

You ask excellent questions! Thank you


I need once in a while to let go of my discipline completely and get FREE! It doesn't happen too often, but when it happens (it's better when I plan to indulge), I also know that I'll PAY for this later, meaning, I'll have to be very strict, eating very healthy for at least one week afterwards.

It looks like it helps me to stay at maintenance, so I'll keep doing it!

Did you notice I didn't call it to sabotage....smile... This is one side of my HEALTHY plan (most of the time) to stay at maintenance.

Do you Sabotage your best intentions?
Are there any specific circumstances which lead you to do this?

Challenge: Observe your eating behaviors. Just for today (Longer if you would like, or consider your past) It is a rare day when we eat completely healthy. emoticon
In what ways, if any, do you sabotage your plan?
