Recently I found out I have a ton of food allergies, which might have upset me, but it DIDN'T. You know why? I focus on what I CAN HAVE, not on what I can't have. And the can't haves are a long list of favorites, like ice cream and chocolate. When someone tell me how hard it must be to be so restricted, is say to them, 'BUT I LIKE ALMOST EVERYTHING I CAN HAVE' and I don't let myself think about the rest.306
The long term payoff will be less pain, less pounds, and a happier and healthier me.
Building myself up to be strong and healthy. Never know what the future is going to hold so need this old body ready. Eat healthy, exercise, walk and drink water, strong mental happy outlook and it can carry you any where. Smile be happy and healthy. Love Spark people.
I keep two pictures on my dresser ALWAYS! A picture of me when I was'nt happy with my weight, and eating habits. And a picture of the NEW me happy, and healthy. It keeps you in check, to maintain the new you. And a constant reminder of all the hard work you put into changing you life. You might say 'Ughh" looking at the one, followed by "But look at me now!!" 248
