Every now and again I have to remind myself that what I am doing has nothing to do with weight loss or looking good. Since I don’t weigh myself, I have to find other ways to measure how I am doing. Usually my energy and clarity of mind are the best indicators for me that I am on the right track. However, on occasion it does occur to me that I could have stalled and would never know it. Not that I want to weigh myself or anything but I did think maybe I could get cleaner with my diet. I do eat fairly clean but I know I could be cleaner. The problem with this is I love food and if my food is not tasty I am not happen. I also know that if I become to rigid I am setting myself up for failure, so I decided right away that I would not listen to these thoughts. They were not coming from a place of love but more from fear. One thing I know is that thoughts that come from fear and anxiety are not real. They are thoughts connected to prior situations in life they may have been painful. Thankfully I am able to turn it off. recognizing it as a junk thought and move on. Thoughts that come from love or good feelings are the ones to listen to. These are the ones to work to fulfill.
