It’s Time To Get Ready
Now I have to be honest I have slipped off the wagon the past couple of months. A mixture of comfort eating, ill health, financial worries, setting up as a Reiki practitioner among other things has meant I have been craving all the wrong things and indulging when I shouldn’t have been.
This Time Last Year
Now this time last year I was gearing myself up for the start of filming the first week of January, in The Fast Fix: Diabetes documentary house. Firstly I can’t believe how quick this year has gone it has seriously flown by. But looking back it is a good reminder that I can lose weight when I put my mind to it.
Dust Yourself Off
So it is time to stop beating myself up about it. We all have times when we struggle we are human beings and it is how we are made. There is so much more to losing weight than just reduce your calories. It is you as a whole that needs addressing and I think I kind of lost that along the way over the past couple of months.
Against all the odds I lost all the weight so I know it is doable. It put my diabetes into remission, reduced my liver fat considerably and changed my life. Admittedly I haven’t put it all back on but it must be around 1st. Now, this is where people usually go off the rails.
Self Destruct Button
We start the self-destruct routine, you know the “I’ve had one biscuit I might as well have another, to well I’ll finish them all now and start again tomorrow” and you know what happens, we do it all again the following day too. We change the inner dialogue to something like, “I’ll start Monday, after the weekend. I’ll have one last binge”. Come on admit it we have all done it.
I was even going to say to you today I am starting again on New Years Day. Then I thought to myself, what am I thinking? I will have every intention of starting New Years Day but until then I know I will just binge. So no! I’m not starting New Years Day I am starting, today and right now!
I wrote a book about this. But I wanted to show you that blips happen to everyone; every single one of us. None of us are without flaws, without temptation, we all have weaknesses but we do all have strength and more than you realise.
A Little Demon
We have a little demon sitting on our shoulders telling us to “just have that one piece of cake, go on it won’t hurt it’s just a little bit”. We need to grab that little demon and throw him in the toilet and flush it. Do not let that little demon win. It is time for you to be in charge of your own body, your own mind, your own future.
Today I am reading my book from cover to cover. I am going to watch The Fast Fix again to remind me just how far I have come and remind myself again how strong I really am.
So to all of you out there saying I’ll start New Years Day. Don’t! Start today… Right now… Take control of your future. This is your life and you have one… it is simple it really is… Just do it!
It is day one for me too so do it with me. If you want to read my book with me along the way you can get it on Amazon for £7.99. The link is here.
There is also a diet journal to go with it which is really helpful. I find writing everything I eat and measuring myself on a weekly basis really helped. In fact, that is when it went tits up and I slipped a bit. I stopped writing about everything. You need to find a coping mechanism mine is talking to like-minded people like yourselves, writing things down, and to focus on the positive outcome. For my food journal click here.
