looking at the "bigger" picture
Monday, January 26, 2009
I have to think beyond the end of my nose, and honestly, sometimes that is hard. I will not lose this weight as fast as I have gained it. I have to think long term and why I am doing this, not as quick let me look good- but for better self confidence, to be a good role model for my kids, to be able to be here for my kids, to attend their weddings and their kids' weddings, to have enough energy to not fall asleep at 8 pm everynight, to not feel so lazy, to tackle new things and feel confident in doing them, to not have to worry that everyone else is looking at the fat girl walking across the room or eating the fast food--- this is not pure vanity here. (i will admit, some of it is..., in fact, some of it comes from spite, but that would be a whole other blog!)
I must commit to myself to every single day, to chose which path I will take, one that will help me achieve my goals, or one that will hinder me and set me back. Another sparker said she visualized herself thinner and reaching her goal and it really helped her. I am going to do that daily... to ask myself what is my goal, why, and then visualize reaching my goal.
By recommitting myself every day, I can do it step by step and hopefully my bigger picture will become smaller....
