ONEderland....a faraway dream??

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

I know it exists--I've been there! (OKay, so it was 1983, but I *WAS* there!!) But I haven't been back there since, almost 25 years. I was a senior in high school, and I felt FAT and unloved. How odd it is that all this time later I would KILL to be that size again!!

So why is it that every time I take that journey toward ONEderland that I have to take all these stupid side trips to places I DON'T WANT TO GO?? Why can't I stay on track? Am I scared that ONEderland is no longer that great of a place? Is it because I'm scared to find out all of my problems will NOT be solved? Do I think it is just too hard to get there? Is it because I'm forced to go on foot as opposed to taking a jet, and I'm just too impatient and want to get there NOW???

Why can I not just ENJOY the journey and focus less on the destination?

    Even thought getting to Onederland takes a lot of time and effort, it is definitively worth it and you are worth it. Try to enjoy being active and eating small and healthy meals often. Also try to enjoy the small accomplishments along the way and reward yourself! I like to treat myself to a new pair of shoes or going somewhere new whenever I lose 5 pounds! Try to focus on small goals and before you know it you will be on your way to Onederland...good luck!

    I'm sure ONEderland is as beautiful a place as we've heard. Not like we remember - I know I felt way too fat the last time I was there too. If only I had known that I would be twice that size at 40. Of course even if I had been told the future, my 18 year old self would never have believed it.
