Thoughts for the day

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Last night I had an eye opening thought as I was sitting in the middle of a fight with hubby. For any of this to work, changing your lifestyle, eating, loosing weight and keeping it off, hell going back to school and even keeping hubby and the kids happy, all of it! For any of it to work for longer than a few days to a few weeks you have to believe that you are worth it. That you are worth the extra time it might take to make a healthy dinner instead of hot dogs, that you are worth the time it takes to workout. That there is nothing more important than your health. If you don't have that belief then you will end up sabotaging (did i spell that right?) yourself. And that little voice that tells you over and over again how awful you are wins again. It has just one more thing to throw up when you start something new.

So does anyone know how to gag that little b*&^% and shove him in a closet?

Now I have to go fight some inner demons. But I think that is part of the whole reason why 98% of us have weight issues to begin with. At some point in time it became easier to eat and not feel than it was to feel. Why does making yourself healthy have to mean dragging all the skeletons out of the closet and tossing them out? Guess I gotta clean that darn closet after I get all the bones out of it.

    As we emotionally 'declutter' we can 'declutter' our bodies, too. I'm going to work on cleaning my closet, too. Thanks for helping me look at it that way. Give yourself time and lots of hugs and step by step you'll get to where you want to be. And you are worth it - every single effort! And that little voice, drown it out with telling yourself all those things you mentioned! Or try what Jessica does in this video:
