This is me...

Saturday, August 07, 2010

f you drop an egg on the floor... you don't throw the rest of them down too... you clean up your mess and move on..

...I usually throw down the whole packet and go out and buy some more and throw them in too... I have really bad habits when it comes to slips. Instead of shrugging my shoulders and moving on in my set direction I give up and stop.

I need to focus on recovery and ignore any eggs that slip during my journey...

    Oh my, this is exactly what I tend to do too! So many of us have an all-or-nothing attitude about weight loss. I am working on this issue and wish you luck in overcoming it as well.

    Slipping is part of living. Now is what is, right now. Choose now. Let the past float away. It does take practice. Poach those eggs! LOL.

    emoticon Meddy, love this analogy.

    emoticon read here someplace, same with getting a speeding ticket. we would stop speeding, not go speed and get 200 more tickets!

    i so get the disappointment/upset that happens and how hard it can be to stop the egg throwing! Idea Pictures like this sure help me. I HATE cleaning up eggs!!! ;)

    emoticon emoticon emoticon btw, did I tell you last weekend? I made eggs & left them on the stove while I got my cereal. The dang dog counter shopped & stole my eggs!!! LOL ;)

    I really the likeness to eggs. There are a few on my floor right now, but haven't thrown any more today!

    Great attitude coming on! This is so true! You can mess up a little and stop and continue on. The more you do that the easier it gets!

    Move forward... the past is done. WE ALL slip... it's getting back on the horse that matters.

    You can do this!

    Great analogy. It takes a lot of time and effort to wallow in our messes. Just think how far we could go if we didn't? Now, that's a scary thought! At least wallowing is familiar territory. Perhaps that's why it is done.

    That is such an amazingly appropriate way of describing the options we have when we make a mistake. As you say, we don't necessarily have to throw all the eggs onto the floor just because of one slip. We each have that choice, and its up to us which way we will react when that first egg hits the floor.

    We all drop an egg occasionally but when it happens we need to remind ourselves after all its only the one egg and there are many more eggs left, many more chances to succeed. I read just recently that only by making mistakes do we become stronger and learn to cope when things go wrong.

    I know you won't throw away all those eggs you still have, no matter how tempting you find it. You won't because when you think you are about to, you will remember you have so many supportive Spark friends who are here for you, ready to offer our support. We can't be strong all the time, but we can gain added strength from our friends and keep that egg from falling.

    I know you can do it, just as surely as I know that morning follows the night.

    Chris.
