Wrapping up a quiet 44th Wedding Anniversary weekend.
More from Steve #43:
Fat people put faith in their diet.
Fit people put faith in themselves.
Fat people expect their diet to make them fit. They put all their faith in the diet, and when the going gets tough they blame their diet for failing.
Thus the … diets don’t work attitude.
Diets don’t fail people; people fail diets … and then blame the diet.
Even though diets work, fit people put their faith where it belongs; in themselves.
They have the street smarts to understand no one can make them fit and healthy but themselves.
In the final analysis, each of us is 100% responsible for being fat or fit.
Everyone who wishes to evolve from fat to fit must eventually realize they are the secret to their own success.
Victim mentality, feeling sorry for yourself … is a form of pleasure that allows failure without accepting responsibility.
Fit people break through this self-destructive conditioning.
The secret is begin believing in yourself, even if you never have before.
Above all else, you have to believe in yourself. You have to let go of the fear of failing on your diet, no matter how many times you’ve failed, and trust yourself to do whatever it takes. No one can do this for you. This kind of faith requires that you forgive yourself for all past failures and make a fresh start today. Build faith in yourself one day at a time, or even one meal at a time.
The new you is waiting for you to arrive. Don’t keep her waiting!!!
Critical Thinking Question: Are you willing to forgive yourself for the failures of the past, and have faith enough to believe this time will be different???
Action Step: Make a decision to take your diet and exercise program one day at a time. You will get stronger with each successful day and this will become the foundation of your ultimate success.
Forgiving myself for alllllll my past failures … done, sorta. My 2017 losing almost to goal and then gaining 70 pounds … well … that’s a biggy. But this time is different. I have learned a lot from my … failures. This is not a race. I WILL get to my goal.
Weight Watchers food exchange program is a good foundational diet.
Walking is my chosen exercise.
And I am taking it one day at a time … one meal at a time.
I have within me what it takes to succeed.
PS … the hall is still being a pain. We may need to start over on one-two of the walls. Just like losing weight … some times you just gotta learn from your mistakes.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
Coz … I want to be ME.
**Within this blog is my longwinded thoughts based on my reading and humble understanding of Steve Siebold’s Die Fat or Get Tough and years and years and years of searching for thinness and … self-peace.
