Dream with consequences.

Monday, September 30, 2013

I am headed off to bed to dream. When I thought of that just now I wondered what my dream is. What it is exactly that I want to be. Why am I taking such a long time to reach my weight goal. Why do I make progress and then run back towards the old familiar unhealthy habits. When I notice the foods that I eat I know that the unhealthy foods do not taste as good as I image that they will and they are not satisfying. Will I ever again be comfortable with food? How will I get to that place?

I have listened to many encouraging words this weekend.

One class helped me realize how much strength I can gain from the simple act of prayer with a bit of faith thrown in.
One podcast helped me realize that I want progress without regret. I can get there through commitment to manageable habits and keeping myself accountable.
I know that taking care of myself is important. I am going to spend some time tonight pondering what I really want. Reviewing my goals and making sure that I know exactly what I want to set up as streaks. I want to go back to the doctor better than I was this time.

Good night my friends.

    I was visiting a friend who eats very differently than I do. I have changed how I eat since joining spark people. Small changes. But seeing how she ate made me realize that I am still a creature of habit and don't think out of the box for meals. In their house they eat a lot of protein and vegetables and often don't bother having a starch with their meal. While I was there I felt better. It's not low carb but certainly fewer carbs than I eat. Since I got home I have gone right back to my "regular" food choices and your blog made me remember that maybe I want something different. I still don't want to "diet" because it always backfires. But maybe look at what my choices are. Choose less. It makes me feel better that I'm not the only one still wondering if I'm doing things right. I know that a healthy me that feels good is more important than wanting to look a certain way so for me I need to ask myself what foods make me feel healthy. I like the idea of manageable habits like having cottage cheese with greek yogurt for a night snack. I KNOW that prayer is powerful for me and that while I walk I connect with God... so I need to do that too. The rest will come if I let it. Thanks.

    I certainly have faith in you. You persevere and will not be deterred, I love your strength, You keep at it. You will find what works for you.
    Finding new habits is challenging. Some occasional habits took me 3 months to change. Like the staying out of the junk food aisle, now I can go down it without the stuff speaking to me. :)
    With the change of seasons, seasonal habits creep back, Your awareness and willingness to change are amazing and will get you to your goals.
