Winding Down From Over-Indulgence

Saturday, August 22, 2009

I have a confession to make... I over-indulge...

I know that is not a surprise, but I have to admit it to myself that I cannot do or eat whatever I want. I have somehow given myself permission to keep myself pleasantly full & comfy, sitting here.. lounging there.. not really watching out for my BEST interest. I seem to make healthy enough choices to feel reasonably good. I read labels & make my meals with as many fruits & vegetables as possible. I drink my water & park far away from my destinations when I am out and about.


I should be getting my gym voucher in the mail any day now & I will soon be out of excuses. I want to get this freaking weight off of me once and for all, and I need to reclaim the knowledge that I had when I was on a role here.

I feel really discouraged & as if I am beginning all over again, but I have to keep at this...

    Just like in a meditation, turn back gently from wherever your mind went to calm awareness, calm abiding. So too for a diet, begin again where you want to be in the present, and that will take care of the future. I have trouble with this issue as well, so this is what I tell myself. All the time I have is now. It's easy to eat too much, even when it's healthy. I have to remind myself to eat slowly with awareness, and reassure myself that I can have more later if I want. I find that I don't really need to eat as much as I do. I have a certain anxiety about not getting enough. I hope you will not feel discouraged about beginning again. It's like driving. There are tiny corrections all along the way in order to go in a straight line. Give yourself a hug for persevering!
