|Thanks Mona for this - we can all relate!!|
I got this off the Weight Commander message board. I don't know where it originally came from, or whether you have heard it before. I don't even know if it was a quote or just something the woman was saying. But I guess it's a quote now. I found it very insightful. I have to try to remember it.
When you choose your behavior, you choose your consequences.
Isn't that a good one? I try to remember all the time that it all comes down to choices. I might not always have the strength to make the correct choices, but no matter what I eat, it was always my own choice to put it in my mouth. If I remember this, it makes the correct choice easier. I can tell myself, "You crazy fool, why would you choose to eat this and remain fat?" It also helps cut down on the "Oh, poor me" and the "I just can't seem to lose" attitudes when I remember that I'm the one choosing to eat badly."
