Skinny from the inside out.

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

I've been thinking through some things lately. Some have been hurtful but I'm letting them be used in a positive way in my life to bring healing and health. A few weeks ago someone I know made a comment that hurt me. It was said with a smile but was basically letting me know that they thought I had put weight on. I was shocked and hurt. I knew I had put some weight on and my clothes were tight but having someone point that out to me was hurtful and felt like a slap.

As bad as I felt I decided to use it for good. It was a slap alright but it woke me up that if I didn't start to make better choices and stick with my healthy lifestyle that I would end up putting the weight back on. I have worked way to hard to not just lose the weight but to gain a healthy life-style.

The next day I journaled a few thoughts. They were basically remembering that for every second of the day I have a choice to make. And every choice leads me to something and away from other things. I was using the analogy of wanting to go to the mailbox – how do I get there? I take a step towards the way that leads to the mailbox. If I take a step towards the living room then that is where I’ll eventually end up – which is not the mailbox. So, I need to intentionally move towards the mailbox – one step at a time. Maybe it sounds weird but the mental picture worked for me.

That is how I need to be in getting and staying healthy. One step at a time. One bite of food at a time - 30 minutes of exercise at a time etc. And I also realized that once I am making these decisions that I have the mindset of a healthy skinny person. I don’t have to be skinny on the outside to be skinny on the inside. It is a renewing of the mind. I make healthy choices which reflect a healthy mindset. Eventually the inside will be revealed by my outside. I am a skinny healthy person already!
