"I can't believe I did this to myself" Brendan said on last night's Biggest Loser.
I have been saying that to myself over and over again. I've ruined my thyroid, my pancreas, my figure, my relationships, my future. And for what? Some bacon and alfredo sauce? WHAT? WTF?
And that is what motivates me to keep moving, keep working, keep weighing in, keep eating sensibly, taking in fewer calories, burning more calories, making good choices. Blogging my brains out. Reading reading READING to fill my head with information - sorting out the BS from what's valuable. Using the good stuff, pushing away the insanity. I am the only one responsible for taking care of this body and I intend to do a good job of it - not by punishing it with deprivation or extreme pain, but be doing what I've known all along I needed to do: Burn more calories than I consume.
Bob told Brendan, it's time to forgive yourelf for the damage that has already been done, and get to work on fixing things. Forgiveness, as previously discussed, is not my strong point, but I think I better work on it. Being angry at myself isn't going to burn fat. Working is!
