But I've sort of been seeing things differently lately and I wanted to share something with you. No, it's not a religion or a book that will change your life. (I'm rolling my eyes.)
It's just my way of looking at things.
I've stopped lying to myself.
“Walking your talk is a great way to motivate yourself. No one likes to live a lie. Be honest with yourself, and you will find the motivation to do what you advise others to do.”
Vince PoscenteYup. It's that simple. Don't lie to yourself because then you'll just perpetuate the cycle.
Be honest with yourself about your feelings and your fears, it's made things a little easier on me. But what's truly enjoyable is rejoicing in your own successes. That's right. You heard me right. If you're going to throw yourself a pity party on Monday, why not throw yourself an I rock party on Tuesday?
Go ahead, celebrate the smallest things in your life. You're healthy? Great! You have a job? Fantastic! You lost two pounds? Awesome! Celebrate it! I'm totally serious here.
These can be depressing times and if you're not willing to have a little fun or find your own happiness, well no one will do it for you. Trust me.
Back in December I went looking for blogs related to Weight Watchers. Yes, I'm back on. No, I'm not posting progress or my tracking. But what I will share are some things that are getting me through. One of those things is a funny, but realistic, blog about a weight loss journey.
Ms Bitch Cakes
She rocks. She runs. She's funny. She's smoking hot. Even if you're not a Weight Watcher, I guarantee you'll like this blog.
So don't lie to yourself today, just see how it feels.
