I have been trying to break the habit of eating after 7 for such a long time.
At night I would sit, grab some munchies and watch t.v. Didn't get the good stuff like carrot and celery, not even popcorn but the bad stuff...high calorie foods, frozen pizza, sandwiches anything that I didn't eat during the day. I did good during the day, then crashed it by stuffing my mouth at night. I didn't really pay attention because I was in the throws of a good action movie or series. Oh I had good intentions this last week. I tried and held off that snack for many hours. In fact night before last I held it of until after midnight and then cracked and ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Well last night I had a talk with my stomach. Usually I start out with good intentions...but somewhere between my head and my stomach, it starts rumbling and my head gets food on the brain...especially now with hubby and Moms health.
Well it went like this:
Listen stomach I hear your call to that food. I am absolutely tired of ignoring my good intentions just to fuel your rumblings. Why can't you just wait until morning? I am not going to give in this time. I have my feet up and will not let them down without good reason and that is not to get food for your evening satisfaction. You know you are not hungry and just want to stuff those bad things in your mouth. I am not bringing trigger foods in the house so that helps but you seem to find food anyway. Well not this time Mister! I am sticking to my plan of breaking this habit once and for all so beat it. Stop the rumblings, stop the thoughts of a calorie laden snack because it ain't going to happen!
Oh my gosh...I made it through the night with no food after 7! I am so proud of myself, I could do a jig and you know what now that I know I can do it....I am going to make it my new evening habit.
So today I am riding a high and can't wait to break the next habit. So pick a habit you want to break and see how good it feels! It is better than a sugar rush....which is the next to tackle. I might not do it in a day but now I know I can do it...a little at a time.
coming out of that cocoon and starting to open up.
Come ride with me
and you will see
Just how good life can be.
Hugs and rainbows. Namaste, Pam

I know inside there is a butterfly and she wants to fly! I feel like a caterpillar, crawling on the ground and never getting very far. Then slowly learning, but going backwards, I encased myself in that safe, dark cocoon, but now I want out. I want to transform into a beautiful butterfly and leave the darkness to soar high. I know I am a miracle but I feel as if I am not done. I need that freedom of taking the weight off my body.
Too many times I have cried because I was afraid that I could not do it. I have done it many times before but gained it back and it is scary. How do I know I can keep it off? I think that is why I lose belief in myself but when I am here with my friends, I know I can do it.
I am going to say this everyday until it sinks in. I know there are more of you that feel the desperation but we can kick this! We can do anything we put out minds to...but we have to work at it...not the desperate plea and rush into it...but the taking it day by day and enjoying the journey. You can stay in the dark and say Why can't i do this or you can just eat healthy and move your body. Make it fun, dance, garden, just take a walk, but move it.
the darkness will become lighter until you can soar. Just don't let it stress you out until you gain from the urgency you make it. Take your time and do it right this time.
I believe in myself and know I can do it
I am tired of being overweight and physically unfit
Inside I have a butterfly, waiting to get out
I can do this! I can do this , I can do this! I shout.
this is my saying for every day, now make your own and say it like you mean it!
