How do I change?
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labour.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
-Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”
I have been journal surfing and there are just some amazing weight loss success stories out there. I feel empowered just reading them and know more then ever I will succeed at my goal. I am not sure when and really that isn't even important, just that I will do it. I really really want this and I can do this. Nothing can stop me from making my goal, no excuse not to go on is good enough. I love being thinner. I love more importantly how much healthier I feel. Like I have shaved 10 years off of my life. Now this is a 2nd childhood that is wonderful. My family is proud of me. I am proud of me. I am happy, but actually I always was a pretty happy person. Life is good.
My total steps today is 8628. I didn't get my pedometer on until 12 noon so I missed whatever morning steps I would have had.
