LilySlim - Weight loss

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Okay, I'm leaving the mistake title.

I was starting to do a new post earlier, when the phone rang and well, I hit the backspace button a bunch of times, but I guess I hit publish too. It was going to read...."Why couldn't I have been thin instead of fabulous?" Hmmm the answer: I was thin and fabulous, but had no appreciation for who I was or all of my possibilities. Now, I'm older, wiser, much fatter, but still have too little appreciation for all of my possibilities. I mean hey....I've got it going on. I'm smart, funny, I can sing, dance, act, cook, mother, make people laugh, but instead of focusing on all of the things that I have, I zoom in on the one big thing I don't have...a slender body and control over food. If my children acted like I do, I would shake them and say "hey, put this in perspective, look at all of the positives!" So, I'm taking a new direction. Today I'm going to accentuate the positives! I'm going to be more thankful for all that I do have, I'm surrounded by people who love me and support me. My husband loves me as I am, I need to do that too. Because if I want to have real success with this elusive band, I realize that I must embrace an attitude of success. If you hold it in your mind, you can hold it in your hands, right? So, it's glass is half full! Have a great day!

Ahhh this is the rest of the post lol. You had us laughing.. (did you know you can cancel your old post.. go to settings and find your drafts and delete the one you don't want.)

Glad you're having a glass half full day. Sounds like a nice place to be.

I figured that out, but loved the comment from Amy and you, so I'll leave it. Thanks for the comments. BTW, I love your blog.

yes, I thought it was priceless and totally something you would do! Although I was worried for a second that you were calling out for a killer was in your house and you could only make it onto blogger and managed to eek out that random message...sort of a blogging SOS! hahah

"smart, funny, I can sing, dance, act, cook, mother, make people laugh" - those are a lot of positives. Keep in mind with all that, you sound like one heck of a person! The extra weight is just a small physical component of who you are as a whole!
