Here We Go

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I know as I go back over my blogs I have said this statement a million times - "Today is a new day with a new start!" However, no one says we can't have a million start overs, we just need to find a way to keep it going. So what makes each time different? I don't know but I can also try over & over until I get it right! I know what to do,how to do it & I do it! Then something comes along first one day goes by then one week, then one month & before you know it a year has gone by & guess what - weights back!

So the questions to ask yourself - why is weight loss the biggest market out there? Why can't we all figure it out - what does it take? When will the news change to say the healthiest people live here instead of we have all become morbid obese not just over weight? Maybe it would help if we all focused on the positives in people instead of the negatives - stop & think, when did the news last report happy news?

So today I make myself a promise - "I will do everything within my power to make today, tomorrow & the rest of my life the best it can be!

I will start each morning off- looking in the mirror & telling myself - I am worth it, I am healthy, smart & beautiful inside & out!

I will do what ever it takes to make the changes I need to make them permanent!

I will not go back to my old ways!

I deserve to be the person I'm meant to be!

Then before I go to bed at night, I will say "Thank you to God for everything he has given me to be the person I deserve to be!"

    You're right.......why don't they report happy news? :-/

    I like the picture you posted - if it takes 12 weeks for people to notice.......I think I can stick it out for that long! That's only 3 months! I like this blog - thanks. I like the positivity in determining how you're going to be and feel!

    Wish I knew the answer to your question of why we can't figure out this weight loss thing. My best guess is that we try to depend on our own strength and we are human and far from perfect. I do know where we can find strength. Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:5

    We all struggle because it's hard to understand it's about being persistant, not perfect. Until we internalize this knowledge on an emotional level, we won't have the patience to endure those days or weeks when we don't follow the plan perfectly. It took me a year to lose 50 pounds because I did it so imperfectly. If someone had told me it was going to take so long, I probably would've given up. But each time I screwed up, I'd say, "well, tomorrow's another day" and just kept at it. You are on the right track by using motivational techniques to get focused. 2013 is going to be your year!
