I'm actually doing this!

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

I didn't know if I could do this. I had no faith in myself and I was my own worst enemy. I'm 63 now and thought I would just live my life out as an obese woman. Oh I hate that word. I had given up on myself. I decided to give myself one more chance. So in September I began daily reading to help me appreciate me. It took several months and I've realized my internal voice was the most unkind bitch that ever lived and she is gone! My internal voice was this almost constant negative and degrading influence but now my internal voice has turned positive and it is wonderful! Even days when I'm not losing weight, my internal voice is telling me other positive things about how my clothes feel or how much better I feel. I never want to hear that negative voice again. Now I find myself 1 step, 1 pound closer. I don't expect perfection and I'm okay with that. To date, I've lost 34 pounds! For the first time in decades, I believe in me and I know I can do this! May everyone's negative voice be silenced and replaced by the kind words YOU deserve!!
Believe in yourself!

    So that was my first "blog" and then I didn't really think to check to see responses. I haven't logged on her again until today so THANK YOU everyone for your comments and support. There is part of me that is waiting for the magic spell that I'm under to disappear so sometimes I'm afraid to celebrate my success but I do know that I'm in charge of my success and there isn't any magic involved! I just reached a 47 pound loss mark!!! So close to 50 that I can see it. I've also come to realize that in the past, I couldn't see the future healthy weight me but now I find myself thinking that next month I will be down a few more pounds and it is a fabulous feeling. I'm doing work outs every day for the past 2 weeks. Not any major work out but for me it is major! I'm a baby step kind of person so been working on getting more and more active and that has been another journey. I upgraded my Fitbit to a watch and I never thought I would like the thing but it has motivated me and is keeping me active so that is a great thing! Thank YOU all again. I will log on more often and read all your journeys too. Have a great weekend!

    Yes, that inner voice plays a huge part in every aspect of our lives....especially when it comes to how we view ourselves. We can be our own worst enemy if we listen to that negative talk. I've been there too. I am happy for you that you have found your freedom. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Way to go.... woohoo on the weight loss. This is a journey and not a quick "poof you are cured" approach, but you have made one of the most important changes and that is the head changes in going from negativity to positivity. Keep up the good work.
