Dealing With The Problem

By HappySkinnyGirl

I gained some weight this week but that’s because I took a break. I like to eat comfort food once in a while but I need to learn to enjoy without gorging it. I’ve to be on the watch when to eat these type of foods. I think eating them early on the day is the best, the body will have all day to consume all those calories. Sometimes it’s frustrating but it took several years to get fat so it’ll take some time to unlearn the bad behavior.

What lessons have I learned while trying to achieve a healthy lifestyle? Not going on a diet put me in the position of ”I’m the conductor of my life”, and becoming a stronger person. I’m learning to develop a healthy mindset and having better self esteem. Learning to love myself is difficult. Victoria Moran, the author of Fit From Within wrote in her book:

Being fat is not disgusting. Child abuse is disgusting. Tying up a dog outside all day and night in every kind of weather is disgusting. Homelessness and starvation and weapons of mass destructions are disgusting.

We need to learn to accept our body and deal with the problem.

I’m shifting gear on my blog toward personal growth because I want to develop and grow as a person, and get rid off the toxic thoughts. I want to live a vibrant life filled with possibilities and no limitations. Health and weight loss will still be part of the blog’s topic.

This is my last weekly update for weight loss. I’ll only post my progress once in a while in the future. You can however still check out my daily/weekly progress on this page: weight loss progress

    Hope the personal growth works out for you. Those toxic thoughts as you say can actually have a very negative impact on your weight. Most people don’t realize then when you’re under a lot of stress you release the hormone called cortisol which can lead to weight gain.

    Stumbling you 😀 .

      Bobby, ooh I can read your mind! Lol. Definitely. We know what to do most of the time but if we don’t strengthen our mind and learn how to grow we’ll wither. Good luck with figuring, if you’re really stuck or have question about blogging just mail me. I’m not expert at it but may be able to help =)

    We have to to take a step sideways and look outside the path that we are on every once in awhile to get a better view. Your journey is an inspiration!
