I finally was able to watch the first episode from Oprah's Best Life Week
and I am SOOO glad I did. She literally had me in tears and question myself a lot.
The strongest part of her show- was the point -that a lot of us don't make ourselves a priority in our own lives. We get so tied up with obligations, stressed out with routine errands and stretch ourselves out so much, that we lose a part of who we are. I know I am guilty of that.
She asks us to answer the following questions, and not just with a superficial answer but with a deep and well thought out one. To be truly honest with ourselves for once. I will be answering them.
#1 WHY ARE YOU OVER WEIGHT?-DEEP
-NOT BECAUSE OF FOOD
-I AM UNHAPPY WITH -FILL IN BLANK-
#2WHAT ARE YOU REALLY HUNGRY FOR?-WHATS MISSING IN YOUR LIFE....
#3WHY HAVE YOU BEEN UNABLE TO MAINTAIN WEIGHT LOSS IN THE PAST?
#4WHY DO YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT?-HINTS YOU WILL BE HAPPY AT SIZE AND WEIGHT
-REACH WEIGHT AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR HAPPINESS
If you would like to answer these awesome!
On another note; my whole bite it and write it commitment went great for day 1.
You may have noticed that I added a weight watchers calculator to the link sidebar. Its really handy in finding out points.
It has been doing nothing but raining the last few days here. No way to get around it so I finally got a gym membership. I am shooting for 3 days a week. woo!
#3 Focus On Real Food
The danger of foods that say DIET!
I know I make the mistake of thinking just because it says light or diet, or fat free that I can have more. I think mentally I know better but a small part of my brain that likes that excuse takes over.
That's all for today.
