Today I woke up 5 pounds thinner. At least, in my mind, I did. I didn’t get on the scale. I didn’t scrutinize my peri-menopausal pooch in the mirror to see if it had changed shape since yesterday. And, I didn’t try on the old jeans in the back of the closet. I woke up 5 pounds thinner because I wanted to remember why I liked being that weight and I was wondering if it was worth the effort to get back there. This is what happened:
So what was different? On the scale I weighed EXACTLY what I had weighed the day before. It was my ATTITUDE that changed. Do I need to lose those 5 pounds? Apparently NOT. I just have to lose the belief that I do and move on to more important things.
Are you waiting until you get to a certain weight before you start living? Try waking up 5 pounds thinner in your mind tomorrow. I have a feeling, you just might like it 🙂
