A new day is here

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Thank the Lord I am almost back to normal. I am feeling so much better. No nausea, no headache, energy up this am. Wow I didn't realize how much my mood is affected when I am sick. I feel like a different person. I am eager to work on my mind, body, and spirit. Started the day with reading my bible and meditation. Now for my exercise during lunch.

Read a good article on Spark yesterday about how you can never be successful at losing weight till you fix the real issues in your life that contributes to your obesity. I have heard this a million times and my head hears it but never my heart. Yesterday it really kicked my butt. For the first time it really sunk in that I have to change my whole way of thinking about weight loss. No DIET will work till I come to terms with why I overeat. I have lost weight so many times to just gain it right back. I am praying that I can think of food as energy and not think of it as a way to lose weight. I started this am with a simple word or to on my calendar as to how I am feeling when I eat. Hopefully this will open my eyes to my emotional state when eating.

    First, I am happy to hear that you are feeling better. Secondly, I agree about finding out WHY we overeat. It has taken me a long time to come to terms with that. I hate people that constantly make fun of overweight people. There are issues that cause us to overeat. Bullying doesn't get a person to lose weight.

    What you are saying that the most important thing is to have a well thought out plan. Most people say "I'm going to lose weight" then jump on the latest weight loss bandwagon and ride high for about two weeks or five pounds, whichever comes first only to come back crashing down.

    Identify the challenge, Identify the solution, make a plan, work your plan.
