Trying to rewrite old tapes in my brain

Friday, December 17, 2010

Today as I read a friends blog it brought back negative thoughts of my old life.....

as I was cutting cauliflower I could hear one of the old tapes in my brain" no body likes fat people" if your fat your worthless" "your bother and sisters are ashamed of you" "if you stay fat you will never get any where in this world" then some where down deep I heard myself say"stop that and stop that right now" those are not true statements, those are someone's opinions and feelings, it's how she felt....not how you think or feel and what's more you are no longer fat, you have never been worthless , so stop those thoughts and find some way to turn it in to positive here I am, blogging to my Spark friends again....

what would I do with out Sparkpeople, I use to think that once I reached my goal I would stop needing Sparkpeople so much but seems I need it more than ever, I still need the support and encouragement that you all so freely give to me.....I sure do appreciate it..I think that's what makes this program so powerful if you use the tools and support one can get here you have a better chance to reach your goal...and maintain as well

So once again I thank the Spark Guy for this free and wonderful program and all my Sparkfriends for your support and for listening to me, especially when I'm in emotional trouble.....

from the bottom of my heart.......THANKS... emoticon

    I have been running those tapes through my head for all my adult life. And now, just when I was ready to really attack this, my dh has cancer and will need lots of attention for some time. I keep asking myself - when will it be time for me. I am trying to find a way to make his chemo. time my time to exercise but he insists that I stay by his side.
    I keep wondering if his illness just may kill me.

    You are a treasure, don't let anyone, or those tapes in your mind tell you differently.
