I will always be overweight
And I refuse to believe that
I can succeed at this weight loss
I realize that isn’t the way most people think but
“Eating to live instead of living to eat”
Making myself happy with food
Is more important than
Making myself healthy with food
And this much is true:
People are succeeding at losing weight every day
But I know in my heart this will not be the case for me
Right now it doesn’t seem possible
I can change my ways and be fit for the rest of my life
This is what I believe:
This journey is just too tough for me
It’s just a fact of life that
People like me are weak-willed and lazy
And it’s ridiculous to believe that
I will lose weight and be healthy
That’s how I used to feel…now I’ve changed my way of thinking and reversed my philosophy on this whole weight loss thing…So now read it from the bottom up to see how I currently feel.
And if that reversal wasn’t enough…how backwards is this: I managed to LOSE weight over Thanksgiving!!!
Who would have thought?!
Thanksgiving this year was undoubtedly different than previous years…
This year I only got one plate (which I didn’t finish).
This year it was more about spending time with my amazing family than obsessively focusing on how many bites of stuffing or potatoes I could fit in my mouth.
This year the whole family got to experience my gluten-free gravy – and liked it!
This year I felt beautiful and confident instead of feeling insecure and disgusting in my own skin.
This year I realized how blessed I am to have my family, and blown away at the incredible bond that we all have with each other.
This year I felt marvelous and on top of the world.
This year I was healthier than I have been in the past.
This year I gave immense thanks to what I stand for, what I am, and what I am starting to become.
This year I know for a fact that I am amazing.
This year is MY year.
“Something inside you emerges….an innate, indwelling peace, stillness, aliveness. It is the unconditioned, who you are in your essence. It is what you had been looking for in the love object. It is yourself.” – Eckhart Tolle
