Mind Games

Friday, May 25, 2012

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!

    I have played all those mind games too. No fun there in that land. And not productive to our health or quality of our lives.

    You have the right frame of mind Sunshine.

    We can do it!

    Glad your here! emoticon
