Chapter 28, Day 26

Saturday, May 12, 2018

My spark friend inspired me today. Her past successes remind me of how strong a person she is. Yes, reflecting..... that IS what it takes to lose weight. Success over food. And I remember. That was me too. I have been successful. I do have the inner strength, and enough self discipline.

Food. It's all about the food. Good, bad. I love it all. Right now, over the past six months (and many chunks of months before) I've overworked and stressed myself. I've excused myself, food moment by food moment. The moments add up to a day. The day adds up to a week, and then a month. Pound adds to another pound of weight on me. If you do what you have always done, you will get what you always have gotten. What is key about this? Food. My behavior.

Food. It's all about the food. Good food, healthy food. I love it. Fruits. Vegetables. Get the food plan going daily, ritualize it, just like I brush my teeth or my daily coffee. That will spell success.

    Yes, my friend, "just do it!" That is the only way to go about it. You also inspired me this morning, we've been at this for a long time together and I agree, we do have what it takes to do it again.

    We plan on putting ourselves first, but then life gets in the way sometimes. I love what you said about ritualizing it, relearn to say no to ourselves again and as we conquer each day, the motivation will follow.

    Have a wonderful Mother's Day! You deserve to be treated like the queen you are! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
