This week I let go to live

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Since high school I have been chasing a number that I have never known. I... Give... Up. And I am so happy to. My obsession with the scale has sabotaged my happiness over and over again. So I QUIT!!! I don't want to make anymore goals based on a number the scale decides to give or not.

I want to live those goals now:

I want to be proud of me.
- today I walked a little over 5 miles today under an hour and a half
- I stuck to my planned foods all week.
- I have exercised everyday this week so far.

I want to achieve happiness in as many days as possible
- this week I have smiled big because of my accomplishments
- I have taken time out everyday to laugh
- I go to bed every night excited about the next day.

I want to like what I seeing the mirror.
- I love the new confident smile on my face.
- I love watching my body show changes each day.
- I love seeing myself in exercise clothes knowing I'm about to go kick my own butt.

This is what I have gained:

-Eating what I want the healthy way
- self confidence
- energy
- motivation to live each day

What I have lost:

- the scale's control
- frustration
- failure
- excuses

I am truly free!!!!!

    Personally, my goal is my Day. As long as I keep to my Day, plan it out, check it off, the scale manages to follow. I follow the Day.

    This is a GREAT blog! Good for you! I just read an article about motivation and it argued that people who try to lose weight to feel better, stay healthier, and so on do much better than those who want to meet a target weight. So, hurray to good health, energy, and confidence!
