Last nite we had an hour and a half drive home from visiting friends in the city and I spent the majority of the time contemplating the concept of what I eat it totally my choice. Seeing people who I perceive look better than I (slimmer, more fit) and once again thinking why do I struggle so much with this. It dawned on me that NO ONE MAKES ME EAT ANYTHING that I chose to eat. IT'S ME that makes the choice. Not since I was a kid was anyone telling me I had to eat a certain thing. Maybe that's where the trouble came in for me......I love knowing that I can eat WHATEVER I want which usually ends up being a binge on sugar BUT STILL.....it's my poor choice that has given me the end result that I currently am unhappy with - about 30 lbs too much weight.
I will blame my poor choices on just about anything so that I don't have to take responsibility for them. I have no willpower, I have 'issues', I am a sugar addict, blah, blah, blah.......
I want to try and focus on that thought......it is completely my choice what I will put in my mouth!!!
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your own choices!!!!
I know that I have the capabilities to do anything I really want to do, so why should this be an obstacle.
Remembering constantly - what I chose to eat is MY CHOICE so live up to it and I can be as healthy and fit as those people I envy if I just MAKE THE CHOICE!!
I AM MAKING THE CHOICE. I know each day will be different and will have it's struggles, but I am taking back my life and taking responsibility for it!!
Each day I will ask myself:
Did I eat healthy?
Did I exercise?
Did I spend time cultivating a strong self-worth?
