a fresh start...

Monday, November 02, 2009

well, i need to get back on track. this has gotten out of control. i really lept off the wagon and ran in the opposite direction. but i see how my weight is all connected to the rest of my life and how that is also somewhat out of control. i started reading "does this clutter make my butt look fat" by peter walsh (the guy from Clean Sweep when it was on TLC or something). i'm not very far into it, but he is basically saying that it's all connected. my house is getting out of control...it's clutter central. i start throwing things out and then when it doesn't get any better i just give up. similar to my attempts at losing weight.

the book talks about what you need to live a more fulfilling life...and that living a more fulfilling life is really a key to happiness...and that the weight and the clutter really aren't the true issues. the real issues are being covered by and fed with the stuff and the food. and a lot of the real issues are related to how people feel about themselves...but i think it is interesting that he is drawing a comparison between weight and clutter.

so yeah, another self help book with promises and whatnot, but so far i really think the concept makes sense. i'm going to keep reading...and i do think that i need to make myself feel worthwhile. worthy of my own time and energy. because no one else is going to believe it if i don't first. if only i could figure out how to do that...

    I know the feeling. Kudos on coming back and trying again. Continuous effort is the key to a life style change - get up one more time than you fall down. Never give up, never surrender!

    Don't give up. It is the easiest thing to do. Sticking with anything is hard to do. i amjust glad that I am staying with school. I think that I was starting too many things at once, which isn't a good thing. Just keep it up and we will all get there together!
