This Sparked Me!

After I stumble I become less motivated and sometimes find it hard to get myself back on track. I heard a quote that helps remind me to keep at it. I don't know who said it but it helps me. "You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there." emoticon

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could find a way to stop the continuous white knuckle mental battle? It is free and easy to learn. It enables you to look at your cravings, laugh at them and walk away. You have 2 opposing streams of thought in your one mind. This process shows you how to let your "I don't want to eat mind' out of your head which enables it to be dominant over your "I want another slice of pizza mind" which is always connected to your body. Then your more dominant external mind directs your weak and wanting body around this planet by remote control. It is so simple. When I first learned this process, I actually forgot to eat for 4 days. Someone in my family actually asked me whats wrong, why did I stop eating? Oddly enough, I did not realize that I hadn't eaten. Try it, you have nothing to lose but your big ass. LOL. Go to my blog- How to UNADDICT Yourself for Dummies- read it, close your eyes and begin to watch your addictive behavior shrink into nothingness.

    Excellent quote! Someone once told me, "If you trip on a stair, you don't throw yourself to the bottom of the staircase."

    One of my Weight Watcher leaders stated it this way, "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always be where you always were!" and I will always remember this one!
