A better day

Saturday, July 23, 2011

As I walked this morning in that beautiful cool morning air, I was thinking about my life journey here with sparkpeople, and how much my life has changed over the last 5+ years, and thinking I have come a long way, i have weathered many a difficulties and won lots of self battles.... I have learned I am my own best friend and sometimes my biggest enemy...but now......
I'm feeling pretty good about my progress, yesterday when confronted with the option for lunch at a fast food place or not with out hesitation I opted for my own food...
at work they offered lunch, I thought about it telling myself that maybe just this once it would be okay....I could order a salad , there are healthy choices, there must be.....but then I thought you have everything you need right here just pop it in your lunch box and go....I then decided I could use a treat, so I stopped and got a container of watermelon to share with every one.....funny thing as we ate our lunch together everyone was saying your salad looks so good, so fresh and I added healthy...they all thanked me for the of the girls said .....Beverly always eats healthy that's why she looks so healthy and that felt like a million bucks and what a triumph over opting for fast foods..not to mentions the calories I saved......
it still answers the old question from some one who said ..."is it possible to never eat fast food again in your life"..... yes it really is....just plan

so today I am proud to be me...and I'm letting the negative thoughts from people who don't get a vote in my life.....they can all kiss my much tighter skinnier butt.......that feels so good to say..
don't let anyone or anything control your self worth.......

have a healthy week end

    What a beautiful blog. I started with your earlier blog, about the "friend's" comment. I'm so glad you came through that remark with such a productive result. That you realize that this journey is so much about what you want it to be. That there are those who will still want us to be what we were and will call us selfish because we aren't what we were. And sometimes I am selfish, looking after my self first. I need to do that because I want to stay here at my goal weight. I don't want to be back there where some of my friends and family are ... fighting their weight. No, staying right here, enjoying the view from my thin, new body. We're in a great place, Kitt!

    Excellent, Kitt! Continue to focus on what matters, and let that other stuff just turn to dust, fall to the ground, and blow away.

    You are awesome!

    LOL Kitt well put.. thats right they do not have a vote in your life.. I'm so proud that you didn't buckle under the thought of "1 time won't hurt" I hate it when I have to eat out and the only option is fast food... I can never find a healthy alternative.. the best I can do is a taco bell taco fresca style.. usually means no cheese or a baked kfc chicken breast.. but both of those are still high in sodium.. I agree your salad probably looked much better and I KNOW tasted better than their choices.. that was very nice of you to share your watermellon... that had to be wonderful... Ronie
