Sometimes I…

Sometimes I eat lots of chocolate.

Sometimes I feel guilty for eating lots of chocolate.

Sometimes I feel guilty for eating lots of chocolate and try to figure out how much I have to run to work it off.

Then I remember how strong I am and how eating lots of chocolate will not ruin my life.

Sometimes I think about food all the time.

Sometimes my mind is so preoccupied with thoughts of food, that I think I’ve actually eaten this food.

Sometimes my mind is so preoccupied with thoughts of food that I think I’ve actually eaten this food and that my whole day is shot.

Then I remember that this is only one day.

I remember that this is only one day and one moment and that in the next moment I have the opportunity to make a healthy choice and that just because I’ve been thinking about and wanting to indulge in junk food, I don’t have to do it– that I have every opportunity to make a healthy choice.

Sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling healthy and light.

Sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling healthy and light and I decide to step on the scale.

Sometimes the number on the scale is not what it’s “supposed” to be and I feel bad about myself.

Then I remember that weight is just a number and not an accurate representation of me. I remember that I am much, much more than a number on a scale. I have a strong, functional, beautiful body that can do any and everything that I ask of it.

 It took me a long time to get where I am today and I still have to work at it every single day.

Through hard work, healthy eating and, most importantly, being kind and forgiving to myself, I am becoming the woman I’ve always wanted to be.

Yes, I do daily affirmations to remind myself how great I am and how much I can do. Yes, I still eat ice cream sometimes and chocolate most times, but I rarely feel guilt when I indulge in these sweet treats. I’m a work in progress, just as you are a work in progress.

I love working on my progress and supporting people to make their own progress.

I’ve been there.

I get it.

It’s my passion and my purpose.  I’m grateful for my job and I’m eternally grateful to have the life that I have.

Sometimes I am so bursting with love and joy that I actually start to cry.

    Haha I’m a guy so my weight fluctuates very little but my body has looked so very differently at exactly the same weight (+/- 1 pound). Weight don’t mean diddly.
