This week's gem of wisdom comes from my friend, Lynn. (can I tell you about Lynn? She is so sweet, and pretty, and she EXERCISES. FREQUENTLY. Like daily, even. She runs...where there are hills. On purpose. Because she likes it. And does marathons. All while raising two kids and working from home and being a loving wife and a nice person.) Sidenote: The running thing is completely beyond me, because I will only run on purpose if there is some danger to myself or my family that would necessitate me moving that quickly.
At last Friday's Weight Watcher meeting, Lynn's leader said this:
STOP SAYING YOU ARE "LOSING" WEIGHT. LOSING MEANS SOMETHING THAT IS GONE THAT YOU WANT BACK. INSTEAD SAY YOU ARE "REMOVING" WEIGHT.
Isn't that profound? I don't want to loooooooose weight, I want to remove it. As in having it gone forever. Never to return. Never to find me again. Never to have to re-lose or "re-remove" the same pounds!
So this week, your challenge is to change the way you talk about this here weight-removal journey. Just see if it doesn't put you in a better frame of mind.
REMOVE yourself from the kitchen! REMOVE the trigger foods from the pantry! REMOVE the unwanted pounds from your life!
Then, re-move yourself on over to my house and help with all this laundry. The end.
