It has been an interesting road traveled during the last 4 weeks. I have been on and off the health track. Mostly on during the week but then oh so very off on the weekends. I take full responsibility for this. A friend of mine over at a weight loss community told me that we have to own our choices and then move on. Logically, food doesn’t hold a gun to our heads and make us eat. We eat because we choose to eat. Whether we are choosing mindfully or letting our minds wander while making choices on autopilot, regardless, still all comes down to a choice.
Thankfully, I have been able to maintain my loss up to this point. BUT I admit that while i’m owning my decisions to make bad food choices, I am still disappointed in myself. I know I can’t focus on this, but still — how much further could I be right now if I hadn’t gone so far off track?
The word “Tenacity” has been floating around in my brain all weekend. I’m going to grab on to it and use it.
Also, I came across a Maya Angelou quote the other day and I can’t stop thinking about it. So, Maya says:
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
Thank God for her written wisdom, because it is exactly what I needed to see.
So, how are you?
