Can't Rely on Magic for Long...

Monday, April 08, 2013

This is an open letter to myself...

Dear Sorgin, you are slip-sliding all over the place. For the last few weeks, you've let your defenses down and have allowed things into your diet you know aren't good for you. Other people can eat them. You can't. Other people can control their impulses when it comes to chocolate, wine and some processed foods. You can't. So stop tempting yourself and put the brakes back on. YOU are in control. Act like it!

You are lucky. You haven't gained weight. You are holding steady. But it's only a matter of time. All that stuff you nibble here and there? It's the gateway to putting back on the pounds. More importantly, it makes you unhealthy and feel crappy. You went through years of that before 2008. Do you really want to go back there?

Do yourself a favor and B.E.L.I.E.V.E. you can do this. Think before you grab. Get rid of the stuff you don't need. Set yourself up for success.

You know what works.

Just do it.

    Absolutely! You are not the same person you were 5 years ago. You see the slippery slope and you know how to put on the brakes before you go over it.

    This isn't about willpower, it's about choice. Choosing to feel better all day vs for 5 minutes. Choosing to do what furthers your long term goals for yourself vs what your inner child wants r.i.g.h.t. n.o.w. choosing health and fitness and joie de vivre vs chic chips

    I believe in you. You can do this!

    I am with you 100%. My magic gave out. It is NOT worth it!
    Time to regroup, girl, and get back in the groove.

    I am setting myself up for success, too! Today has been a great day. I will not blow it in the hours I have left. May you remain strong as well!

    emoticon Thank you!
