Acceptance

Friday, May 22, 2009

I deleted my previous blog because I felt it was too negative. It wouldn't help me or anything else except for the fact that I had a place to vent. Since then I have acknowledged to myself some things I really have to accept.
That slow progress is better than no progress and accepting this will develop the gift of patience. I do not need to blame things outside myself. The time I spend on SP is my choice and if I am on it because I am procrastinating over other obligations in my life I need only look to myself. I will repeat the following to myself:
How many times have you said no to an opportunity because you had to take care of something else you put off earlier. How many lost opportunities can you accept. Lets make action a habit. Focus on the toughest hurdle first.
I am now going to enter my new weight. I have lost another pound (despite long time coming). I have had a very frustrating few weeks of hovering just above and below 143 pounds and finally hit the 142 today. I accept that the same may happen again but that is okay.
Remember: fortitude, persistence, determination and "Never give up" I found I needed to monitor sodium, decrease meat meals, increase vegetables, more water and exercise of course. Anyway I am glad to be feeling more positive.
Thank you SP
