Join my Inner Dialog

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

I am thinking as I write this down. My hope is that committing to writing this blog will help me move closer to achieving my goal. I've started over so many times I contemplated forgetting it all.

My inner dialog went this way. Just accept what is, You should have kept it off the first time, now you're older and it is just that much harder, Why bother. Liposuction would be the easier route, Yeah, with no money, come back to reality girl. OK then, I'll just stay fat, who needs the saggy skin anyway. I don't want that look where my cheeks look sunken in. See being fat isn't so bad after all. Yeah, except the part where your knees are hurting because you put so much weight on them or what you're doing to your heart and most important of course, you can't fit your favorite pair of jeans anymore. Now you have to wear those old lady jeans with the elastic at the waist.

OK, OK, Time to leave the pity party. OK, well, On 2nd thought, I am older and why live with what I don't want for another day or year. I can make the most of what I have today, Every day I wake up is another opportunity to change my life. Can you believe I got that answer from a homeless man, I met on the street 10 years ago, If he can look on the positive side of life, why can't I? I guess that is how I will approach each morning. I will greet the sun with the attitude, that today is another opportunity to change my life.

No. This time I will not just say something, or in this case type something in the hopes it will stick. I literally just typed this up to print out and post on my wall where I can see it.

    Here are some more:

    Add one change every month.

    Add doable habits that can be lifelong habits. Starving yourself is not sustainable. That is why I love the McDougall Plan.

    If you slip, immediately do something positive (like brushing your teeth) and build from there.
