You know what I am talking about...we all play the games. The bad part about the games is that they have a negative affect to our lives. I just wasn't smart enough to realize the damage I was doing to myself, until now. The mind games of my past..."if I don't write it in my food journal, I didn't really eat it". Then there is the "I can eat what I want for the first couple days of the week and then cut my calories the rest of the week before weighing in". Oh let's not forget the negative messages that I have told myself for years that let the air out of your sails.
I am bowing out of those games. I don't want to play any more. So, one step at a time, one day at a time I am going to make this work. I have the most beautiful little granddaughter in the world and I want to be here for her. I want to be able to run around with her and not be winded. I want to be able to get into a seat at the movies, airplane, or a ride at Disneyland with out having to squeeze myself in or having to use an extender strap.
So I am going to begin planning my vacation for next year. I want to go on a cruise and I want to be healthy enough to enjoy the trip!
I am looking forward to the journey and I am determined to stay away from those mind games. I am going to change those negative messages to positive ones. I can do it! Every positive change is a step toward my healthy goal!
