It has been many years now

Wednesday, February 05, 2020

I have came at this body work on and off for years and years. I get gung ho and then for this or that slump back into the captivity I have tried to escape.
I have learned when I slump and allow it to terry all I am doing is allowing my captivity to remain. When oh when will I learn and stand against what is so harming my health and not say temptation....... got me. I need to commit to not touching any of the things that are just not needed in my nutrition. What will happen if I commit to not touching what I don't need? Each of us can answer this probably pretty close to the same answer. It is not just nutrition but this is one area I think needs to always be dealt with.
I have learned I can never give up for that would help me at all There have been times earlier in my life I thought just don't worry about it just live and eat. Well I can't just live and eat because I eat too much. This area needs to be given attention.
I have learned to be gentle with myself. Earlier when I felt I messed up I would mentally cast myself down which would only make me feel so miserable and keep me from getting a grip longer.
I have learned it doesn't make any difference what others think of my progress or lack there of.
I have learned NEVER GIVE UP!

    I struggle with eating too much processed food but being obese and this covid thing has scared me enough to focus on my goals and lay off the junk. We can do this. Best wishes.

    All we can do is keep on doing our best and not give up. Some days it gets so frustrating because I'm not where I want to be, but as you said, I've learned not to beat myself up. It's a journey, one that will take a long time to get to where I want to be. Hang it there.

    I have learned all too well that the one side of me is so motivated to lose weight but the other side wants what it can't have. It's a delicate balance but I will never give up.

    You've given great advice . . . . never give up. We will NEVER be perfect, but it's all about progress. Keep on being gentle to yourself. That definitely makes a huge difference.

    It's been a yoyo life for me too, so I completely understand. But the "never give up" is really hard to do!
    It's a shame to allow defeat for months before returning! Oh, it would be so nice to keep on keeping on without falling off the wagon. May the Lord Bless you on your journey!
