Last night I had a quote come to me from one of my all-time favorite movies. "Get busy livin' or get busy dieing". That is exactly what I've got to do. It really is a choice that I have to make. I can live or I can die and the end result is a cumulation of my food and exercise choices. It really is as simple as that. Get busy livin' or get busy dieing!

The other thing that hit me last night was that I'm letting some demons in my life are at war within my life and those demons are causing me to feel that "why should I? What's losing weight going to do". Fatalistic, yes...very. I need to kick those demons in the butt. And actually turn it around and say, "I'm going to lose weight BECAUSE of the demons...." And yes, after thinking about it for a while, I can definitely come up with a mental plan of attack that does turn my thoughts and energies around from something so fatalistic to something that is kick butt. It's going to be difficult to retrain my thinking and to banish those fatalistic, 'why should's not going to make a difference' thoughts and turn them into the the new 'think outside of the box, do it in spite of those demons'.

This morning, I'm working on my eating plans for the day and I've already exercised so I'm on track!

No time for the demons, just time for YOU. For me, the weekends are my demons, but I so love the time off. If I could just move the food out of my sight. But since I can't I'll have to learn to control it, and not let it control me.

I vote for the "Get busy living" plan. You're really doing so well with the plan, a little positive "tweak" might be just the thing to get you re-motivated. Knowing you have the entire blogosphere in your corner and willing to kick you when needed, should help....I know it does me.

My precious blogging friend. You are a victor not a victim. You are above and not beneath. You can be powerful or you can be pitiful but you cannot be both. You tell those pesky demons to get on back were they came from because they don't want to mess with you. You are awesome and I know it. Look how far you have come. YEA YOU!!
