I am not surprised by people who are trying really hard to diet and you have nothing but advertising blaring at you for Christmas eating and shopping. Buy this get one free and a whole host of other items and there all at it. It is indeed a very difficult time for all of us in the situation of been overweight as we are to try and keep on the straight and narrow. Should you falter just admit it and pick yourselves up dust yourselves down and re-start your regime. Remember we have all been there; there is no shame in failing on one or so days. As long as you do the right thing and remember your worth been beautiful and without the excess weight. This is your life and your discipline no-one else’s.

The discipline you are using is yours and yours alone. It did not come from me or and anyone else for that matter otherwise it is of no benefit to you. A discipline arisen in you and by you is yours wholly and will assist you in becoming aware, knowing when to eat, what to eat and why you’re eating. You will only eat that which is less harmful to you. Be come aware of the fact that this discipline is yours not put upon you by others because if you feel it has been put upon you it is the most natural thing to resent it and it will be of no benefit to you as resentment leads to failure. You may for a period of time give into the forced discipline but at the end of the day you will revolt against it. So become aware and give yourself the time to find your own discipline and keep to that as yours and no-one else’s.

I hear people all over the place saying what you are doing for Christmas and what a difficult time it will be for you. Well no it is up to me if it will be difficult or not. I will decide nearer the time what I will eat for that period. I know that the majority of folk pig out at Christmas and the New Year. Forgotten is the actual story of Christmas in which we celebrate the birth of the planet’s greatest healer Jesus. It matter’s not what your religion is. The majority of people know what Christmas is and why we have it. It has got money orientated which to me is very sad. I am sure I have help do that by my own forgetfulness in that it is to celebrate a birth. Over the year’s I am totally convinced I have contributed to the buying of gifts and food. Why is it in the Christmas week my shopping bill would double and often treble in food purchasing? You the same? So this year I am gearing up to have the strength and knowledge that I wish to live and to avoid all the bull and the heavy advertisings on TV, Radio and Press to buy this that and the other. For me it is just another day.

There is no one more aware of my own failings when it comes to food and trying to continue on a daily basis away from the old but to me it is worth the pain when it shows up. It does not last for long. I use the word long and I am reminded that yes it is a longing I get and must recognize that and thank it for reminding me of its presence and now it can poodle off.  I am been polite in my words sometimes it is stronger language. Coming back to religion if you are a religious or spiritual person you can always pray for the help you believe you require maintaining your diet and execising regime. I do know that a lot of people get a great solace from there God. Don’t get me wrong I have my own understanding of my God. It is the old tale of go to any lengths to maintain your well being. Allow nothing to come between you and your diet and exercise program.

I must look up the beautiful poem I read every Christmas and publish it for your perusal and please feel free to pass it around. I will be exactly one year in 5 weeks time on my diet and exercise regime. So I am looking forward to my hospital weight in.

Have a great day and be well and remember love the reflection it happens to be you.

I weighted in at 154.5

About the Author

I suffered weight issues for over fifteen years. I started with being fat then I graduated to being overweight. At last, obesity struck me about 8 years ago. In the year 2008, December, I fell seriously ill. The illness could have cost me my life but for my faith and family that I came around. Now that I had got a new life I had to spend it with zest, confidence and a winning attitude.
