my thoughts are important

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Self talk is so important. When I tell myself I can do something - I do. Whenever I start giving in to the doubts and fears, I don't do it. I caught myself thinking today that I "can't ever get down past the 180's" that I "will always be stuck here so why bother trying" that I "have been stuck here for three years, so OBVIOUSLY this where I am supposed to stay".

Well, these are LIES that my brain is telling me. I am going to CHOOSE to think differently.

emoticonHow bad do I want it?

emoticonAm I willing to go to ANY LENGTH?

emoticonAm I willing to get busy doing what others may consider "a little extreme" ?

emoticonThe 175's WILL be something I see very soon

emoticonBy the end of this month

emoticonPeople will look at me and say "Wow! What has she been doing? She looks great!"

emoticonMy food choices will be the foods that like or love ME

emoticonI accept that certain foods TASTE good, but ultimately work against my health

emoticonI can love myself enough to continue on making the best choices possible given any situation I come upon

emoticonI forgive myself for mistakes I've made or will make

emoticonIt's progress, not perfection

So here are some good choices that I have made in the past 24 hours. First, the lunch I had yesterday INSTEAD OF PIZZA:

And second, here is my lunch from today.

    Great self talk -- and you are right, it's learning to think like a thin person (to use Dr. Judith Beck's phrase) that is the essential first step.

    Yes, important to think and talk about these things! I just had a discussion with myself at lunch today. I told myself to not just eat the entire sandwich just because it's there. That if I eat it, I would be stuffed and uncomfortable and then angry with myself for having done that. So I got a to-go box and took the remainder with me.
