Love Your Body- No Matter What!

I haven't been to a primary care doctor in many, many, years. Well, today I had a complete physical done and I am so glad that I did. I needed my doctor to say it to my face "You need to lose weight." "Everything else is fine but, you need to lose weight." He's absolutley right. This is what I needed to hear to motivate me. So, I'll be back on the treadmill bright and early tomorrow morning. He also prescribed a bunch of blood work, which I will have done one morning this week. I'll keep you all posted. I know how to lose weight, the hardest part is keeping it off. This is the struggle.
Here is an update on the previous post on seeing old friends- My brother decided to go ahead and tell my mom about the illnesses of her closest friend. She was sad for her friends but her reply to him was "That explains a lot!" Evidently she did pick up on the changes in her friend and just didn't know what it was. My brother approached the subject with kindness and care. I was glad that he did it!
Today's Affirmation Reads: "I love my body. I create peacefulness in my mind, and my body reflects this peacefulness as perfect health."
I know that I am healthy! I am in the process of losing weight. Today I faced the truth and now I am ready to face it head on and do something about it.
When have you faced the truth about something in your life and used that truth to make a positive change?

I don't have a doctor myself. I avoid them. Not in an irresponsible way, but I realized that when I got OFF all the meds that were "nessesary", my health and the health of my family improved greatly.
I wish you much luck in your weight loss. I hope you don't make the "diet" mistake. Diets don't work! If you want to be healthy for life, you must lead a healthy life.... not a healthy temporary diet. I am down 36 pounds from Sept. last year. It really is a healthy, permanant change that makes the difference. It's helpped my family too, as all their food and habits have also changed. That happens when the cook changes her eating habits! LOL

Lots O Love,

Hi Maureen

Good luck with the weight loss. I think diet is die with tea at the end so you may as well eat anyway but jokes aside... We do become comfortable when we put a few kilos on and this is where I think we should start... with the reasons we are comfortable in the first place. My weight goes up and down in extremes so I tend not to worry about it. The best weight loss program I went on was a new dog. I had to walk her everyday... a couple of times a day in fact. Unfortunately she is no longer with me but the extra kilos are :)

That's a hard one...I try to love my body, but hey, I'm a woman. I will always find something wrong!
