just sayin’ … can you hear me ???

Monday, January 11, 2021

Hubby had the sniffles starting Wednesday. With COVID running rampant … your brain jumps to the worst. It was “just” the sniffles.

My heart is breaking over the state of our nation. We each have a voice and a right to be heard … but I can not hear you over the sound of violence.

I wish there were such things as … magic potions.

More exerts from Steve #90:

Fat people rely on diets, pills and potions.
Fit people rely on themselves.

Fat people blame everything and everyone but themselves, and when they do accept responsibility, they go into a depression from thinking about how unworthy and weak they are.

Getting fat doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human.

Steve himself was one time 40 pounds overweight.

You deserve to be thin and healthy.

Fit people screw up, too, but they take responsibility and then go to work to solve the problem. Don’t waste time wallowing in self-pity and you can’t afford to feed the habit of searching for sympathy.

Critical Thinking Question: Are you self-reliant, or are you waiting for a hero on a white horse to save you from yourself???

Action Step: Accept the fact that no one is coming to the rescue, and your level of fitness depends completely on you.

Well, I haven’t found the magic pill that would create a situation where I could just wake up one morning skinny and my weight loss hero doesn’t seem to know my address … so it is up to me.

I just wrote on MeadsBay’s blog that if she … we … were consistent with what we know to do … we could be 50 pounds thinner a year from NOW.

So … I deserve to be thin and healthy.

Just do it … already.

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

**Within this blog is my longwinded thoughts based on my reading and humble understanding of from Steve Siebold’s Die Fat or Get Tough and years and years and years of searching for thinness and … self-peace.

    We must have hope, but hope grounded in reality.

    It's so hard to be patient and be prepared to lose only 1 pound a week, but a year flies by, and 50 pounds is a LOT of weight to have lost by then. Consistancy is key. I'd rather be 100 pounds lighter in a year, but I'll take 50 pounds too thankyou very much!!

    Love the photo you've used.

    Your country, my country, the World....sigh. Forget magic potions. I wish there were a magic wand to rid the World of it's violence and sickness. emoticon

    You said it. EVERYone is entitled to be heard, but can't hear over violence. Period.

    Steve makes so much sense!!! Really, when I was hugely overweight, I realy did blame everything and everyone except myself! When I was diagnosed w/type 2 diabetes and hypertension I knew . . . I had to do it already!!!

    Trying to visualize the reward of weight loss in the future with the immediate reward of the snack in my hand.
    It's tough.

    I cannot tell you how many diet pills, diets, vendors, supplements, and various quackery I have fallen for over the years.
    And here I am, almost 69 and just about my heaviest ever.
    Done with that. measly pound a week for 2021 means 50 pounds gone!

    Siebikd is offering training right now to become a fat loser coach: and says he himself has gained weight during the pandemic!

    Pandemic paranoia is a thing. Not that it isn't a self-protective thing, but it can add to anxiety!

    So... calming thoughts and vibes... being wafted out over our nation, and the world! emoticon
