Pausing for Presence…

I had to take a beat and pause so I could be more present for decision making today. Whether it was being very hungry and snacking on veggies instead of popcorn, or getting up when the alarm went off so I could get some activity, or even just reflecting on my WW Recovery Checklist – it all comes down to my resolve for weight loss success.

Keeping this around is helpful because it reinforces healthy habits.

Having the self-control to think things through is an important step in a weight loss journey. I am thinking of it like this, it’s not that I’m saying “No” to tempting foods, it’s that I’m asking myself to consider the impact of my choices. Or, if I find myself in the kitchen, I’m making it a point to be intentional so I don’t go on autopilot. I think I’m at the point in my recovery plan where my healthy habits are taking over. My unhealthy habits are retreating. It’s a strange thing really, I can feel it happening. Transformational change happens the moment a person really believes that it’s possible.

Pausing to remember beauty…

I’m thinking about how incredible it was to see real humpback whales. There is something wonderful and beautiful in just knowing they are out there in deep ocean right now.

New foods to try…
