The RIght Path....

Saturday, June 08, 2013

This evening I have laughed and laughed and laughed. My friend Alice and I were going over our blogs for SMART. We both are doing weight watchers and have attended many a meetings. I swear.....the meetings are in me and come out naturally anymore.

So many have written they want to lose weight...........

okay.....no surprise there! Who doesn't?

I realized that I didn't write ...I want to lose weight or ...how much?

WHY?

Of course I do...but..the number ...HONESTLY is NOT important to me! NOT AT ALL! I honestly figured ...that IF I were doing the RIGHT thing....I would LOSE the weight! I am MORE concern with HOW to accomplish my healthy guidelines...and by doing that....the weight will NATURALLY come off.

It took me a long time to understand that I had to be SPECIFIC in my goals...hence homework for the week. I have our leader Sherry's voice in my head...HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DO THAT? NOT GOOD ENOUGH....HOW? WHAT? HOW MANY TIMES? DETAILS...hence..story boarding. Her harping......is in me! Before when she would want exact details...I would feel exasperated.. She drilled...she prodded....and now...now...I can do it for myself....with precise detail. I can plan....rationalize.....and proceed.....

AND the most important thing....

I can evaluate the week with complete honesty whether I did well or not. If not...I can admit to why and .........work on the changes I need to make. When I do well....I can still see where I can improve and become a stronger me.


It NEVER occurred to me that I did NOT put down...I WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT in these next 12 weeks...or how much!

Alice pointed that out to me.....

I had to think about what I had written.....and she was right!

Subconsciously........

that fork in the road......


I took the right path......

for me......


I have fought change....I have struggled to find the correct balance......and worked on my spaces..my routines....

and tonight...I wrote a blog for SMART....and it had nothing to do with the number on the scale...it had to do with how to live and be healthy......weight loss was a natural given.

No symbol....no bravo star.... emoticon could.....would hold a candle to how I am feeling right now.

The laughter has subsided....

it is replaced...with.....

a faint smile....moist eyes......and the knowledge.....

total completeness.

    Still laughing when I think of talking to you anytime. After talking to you, I went back and read my blog and what I had written. I did list loss weigh and how much. Blushing now and thinking of removing it from my blog. We have our pact on our goals that we set together for Sept. With your theory and way of thinking, I need to rethink that goal.

    Love you Girl and all out talks
