Choices Instead Of Habits
Tuesday, March 04, 2014
Each day of my weight loss journey is going to be about making choices and removing habits. I don't know about anyone else but I find I need to break certain habits and replace them with choices.
One of the habits I need to definitely break is using food to escaoe from being more forthcoming with my feelings. It's a habit I have had for many, many years. Rather then stating how I feel albeit with family or friends, I don't say anything but to suppress whatever feelings I have I use food as my way of holding back. I'm smart enough to know that is a very poor way of not communicating. I'm wise enough to know that that particular habit is so well entrenched in my personality it will definitely take a long time to make a new resolve. But I have to think positive thoughts and know that each day I can take steps to open my mouth and allow words to come out rather then lol using food to squash those words.
One more habit that I fully intend to start as soon as possible is making myself a priority. For years, I have been the last one on my priority list. Now, it's my turn to come first.
Before I close this post, I want to thank those of you who have stopped by and taken the time to read my blog. That definitely will encourage me to post something every day. Take care of yourselves and make it a great day.
