Welcome to my Weight-Loss BLOG!
I started this adventure with 200+ lbs. to lose to get to my goal. Daunting? LOL Some might say that, but I choose to view it all from a new perspective. Follow me for lots of humor, thought adjusting, and positive expectation about Food, Weight-Loss and Health. Follow my progress! It’s gonna be an awesome journey!
I’ve always been a “scale junkie” and in the past have determined whether my day was good or bad by the number I saw on the scale. I’m ditching that thought process this time around and plan to keep my main focus on making P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S instead! I’ll weigh in every so often, but will look towards overall accomplishments and not just scale weight loss.
I’m an avid believer in the Law of Attraction, Visualization, & meditation and understand how powerful thoughts can be…both positive ones and negative ones.
After many many diets, many tears and many failures in the past, I’m finally bubbling with the renewed (or maybe “new”) perspective that I deserve to be healthy, fit, beautiful, successful, abundant, sexy, strong, happy and do all the things I enjoy! As the title of my blog reflects…Why NOT me? (See who inspired that name, here!) I believe I deserve it simply because “I Am.“, and that I exist as part of an unlimited Universe that can help me achieve it.
I believe it’s possible to get a healthy, strong body by paying attention to how I feel, then adjusting my thoughts to a better feeling place. Then to let inspired action lead me to appropriate way of eating, exercise, persons or actions that are the path of least resistance for me to get to my goal.
“Inspired action” does not mean do nothing… but it’s me allowing and following the least resistant path to my goal.
I’ve tried it my way for over 40 years with countless diets, crazy gadgets, pills, starvation, and even weight-loss surgery. To read my story on how I “dieted” my way up to 385 lbs., click here. But I’ve now turned request over to the Universe, Higher Self, God, Spirit (whichever name you choose) for help. Law of Attraction and Abraham Hicks teachings have changed other areas of my life dramatically so I truly believe this way of thinking can also help me achieve a healthy, vibrant body. I JUST HAVE TO GET OUT OF MY OWN WAY! So…I am where I am today and the number on the scale and the size of my body is okay whatever it is. I’m pointed in the right direction and moving forward from here.
A GPS doesn’t look at the past or care where I’ve been, it only wants to know where I WANT TO GO from where I am right now. It only focuses forward.
An awesome way to look at this whole thing! I intend to keep moving in the right direction and know I’ll eventually get to my goal! Along the way I’m going to focus on and allow the beautiful, strong, healthy, flexible body I desire. I can do this… I’ve always been able to do this…and now it’s time.
I’m very excited about this new perspective and renewed hope as I begin this new leg of my weight loss journey!
I’m first in line for takeoff, got on my coolest shades, and rollin’ down the runway at full throttle! I hope you’ll join me and I hope to inspire with my openness, humor, and outlook.
We can do this!
