Surprise! it's me, myself!

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Staying on my food plan seems to be less difficult than it used to be. It isn't that I'm necessarily more motivated, it just seems more "normal" to eat the way I do now. That surprises me!
Eating healthy just makes sense to me for the first time in my life, and since my PRIMARY goal is to weigh less and be healthy, eating less and making healthier choices seems like a simply normal thing to do. That surprises me!
I used to be afraid to write or even think anything so positive as this, as though I was putting a whammy on myself. I'm going through this old notion and facing it head on instead of going around it. That doesn't surprise me as much as it used to because I'm more able to confront problems now than ever before.
I am not the person I used to be when I was younger and at the whim of every fleeting emotion and opposing opinion that came my way. That surprises me because I used to be so afraid, and now I'm not.
Maybe I'm not just getting older, but getting better, at least better at being the me I was meant to be! Some days I really surprise myself.
I'm happier being the older me than the younger me, and that surprises me. But I like it.

    Thinking and eating Healthy adds years to our lives so you are ahead of the game. I'd have to say I'm more sure of myself now and know I'm the only one that can make those healthy changes in my diet and lifestyle. Since I retired I do seem to be happier and more satisfied with my "lot" in Life. I just posted a Team question about eating changes and I'd love it if you'd reply back to it as I want us all to eat healthier too.

    Love,
