I guess it's all about the horse

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Well, I guess learning to get back up on the horse is what it is all about. I have to admit, sometimes I don't want to go for a ride. This weight loss is for life. I am determined that this is for life. I want to be healthy. I know I have said this before, but recently there has been a switch in my brain. Before, I wanted to be healthy, but when I fell off the horse, I beat myself up so bad I thought with my "fat" brain. It said I really was beyond help and therefore would never really be healthy.

But in this past week something switched in my brain and now I know that I will be healthy. I will be a good rider and not fall off my horse!! I will have a great one year anniversary. I have already lost 20 pounds. It doesn't matter that it has taken eight months. Loss is loss and therefore I am now healthier than I was 8 months ago.

Yippy- I - Ay!! Ride em cow girl!!! :) emoticon

    I have so much weight to lose I try not to think about it. I just focus on what's going into my body and how it is going to affect me. Keep up the positive thinking. Maybe start your day with a motivational email. You can sign up for emails. I did and they are short and inspiring! Best wishes!
