Hopefully none of us will be starting over today (again).
Hopefully we have all found our "groove" and are being faithful to our decisions and our commitment to make this the last time we have to lose our weight.
Hopefully we realize that we have to endure some hunger to lose weight and have accepted it as a fact of this journey. We can do many things to deal with it but that booger is a fact of life. Who doesn't have a booger now and then? (OK, enough). There could be some graphic descriptions about getting rid of boogers and how this is done but I'll have to think on that for another post. Feel free to use the idea with boogers being----anyway.
Hopefully we are less afraid of hunger feelings and can face them knowing this is a sign of our maturity as we go about our lives. More people die from overeating than from starvation.
Hopefully we realize that being hungry means we are forcing our bodies to turn to stored fat for energy - this is a good thing.
Hopefully we are not going to let anything get in our way. Food is not that important anymore. We see it for what it is for what it can and cannot do to us or for us.
Hopefully we realize that we wouldn't have to start over if we would stop quitting.
Hopefully we understand and accept that we have caused this situation, that behavior has consequences, and we must pay off the bill we have run up (our weight) through our poor choices (thank you Paul). This means enduring some hunger (which isn't fatal is it?)
Hopefully we have made this decision final, non-negotiable, and without fear to lose this weight once and for all and keep it off. Food has been our master. We have let our bodies rule over us. No more.
Hopefully we are putting into good use what we have learned from other bloggers - those "Aha" moments, those epiphanies, those light bulb moments, those convictions, and see our truth. Even if other bloggers make us mad sometimes there is something that struck a cord and it's time for self-examination and going forward better armed to do this right this time.
Is hoping going to get it done? Nope. There is Scripture that says "Faith without works is dead". This was to keep people from talking the talk without walking the walk. Hope without action is dead as well.
Hoping the hope without acting the act doesn't sound right but you know what I mean (I hope). Be well.
