Oh dang.....it works!?!

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

apparently, this whole "weight loss" thing works if you do it right.

who woulda thunk it??

seriously, by taking control of my life and my choices, i can see myself actually reaching my goal eventually! yes, i know, simple enough - watch what you eat and exercise. but it's so much more than that!

i seriously had to get to a point where i needed to make some changes. and this wasn't anything anyone else could do for me. no more "i promise to start tomorrow" or "i deserve this cookie." i deserve to feel good about myself, that's what i deserve!!!

so, i had to commit to myself, which is the hardest thing in the world. have me make a promise to someone else, i can keep it easily. but to myself? not always so easy.

i love myself, i do, and not in an egotistical narcissistic way. i need to be able to rely on myself for my happiness. and if losing weight is one way i'll be happier, then i need to do that for myself. i'm happy with a lot about myself, don't get me wrong. and i don't think i don't deserve good things until i lose weight - i deserve good things now AND when i lose weight.

i guess my whole point is that i do like myself, and if i want others to treat me with respect and kindness, i most certainly need to do it for myself. and one way is committing myself to weight loss

    Great thoughts! I spent years telling myself I'd start being sexy when I lost weight, or that I'd reward myself later. How silly! Thanks for your wonderful, welcoming comments. I added you as a friend so I can come back and see how you're doing!

    You make some great points in your post. I would print out what you wrote and keep it handy to remind yourself, when the going gets rough, WHY you are doing this. You are doing it for YOU. And, I love that pic!!
