Weekend Quote: Our Entire Life…

That’s me this past Tuesday on a rock overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Horseshoe Bay Beach in Bermuda.  I had an amazing time but I can’t lie, after a week of overindulging on vacation I find myself in my old self-loathing, dieting cycle mindset.

Tomorrow I’ll… blah blah blah… 

What? What’s going to start tomorrow? Eating perfectly? No more carbs? Maybe I should only eat fruit and vegetables for a few days? A fast? A cleanse?

GAH!

It’s all crap. I’m over it.

You know what I’m going to do tomorrow? I’m going to wake up and do the best I can just like I always do. No pressure or special diet plan that I’ll probably break by noon. Nope. Just smart choices without guilt or shame.

Our entire life … consists ultimately in accepting ourselves as we are. – Jean Anouilh

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Oh. I’m on that cycle too! I’m on the exciting part though, where you lose weight, you have just enough energy, you’re TOTALLY motivated inwardly..indeed, I am in the good part of the cycle.

    How does one break a cycle? By BREAKING THE CYCLE!!! I honestly don’t know if I’m going to break it this time.. I’ve discovered the thing is, that when you decide to make a change, it’s like repentance, you gotta turn and go the other way. The second you turn back you turn to salt.

    I started at 272.4 at the beginning of March (my blog:alphabravocharlie77@blogspot.com), last Saturday I weighed in at 238.1, A five pound loss in the first week OFF of Hcg.

    I started taking Hcg so that I could run again. I was hurting; I’m only friggin’ 36 years old, I’m too young to hurt!! I took the shot for 6 weeks under the supervision of a Naturopath.

    At my heaviest I was 330 pounds. I think I’m an emotional eater..I don’t know..the cycle is there for a reason…

    You don’t sound like a woman on a diet. You sound like a woman who has battled, and is a warrior. I am an Amazonian (not the internet shopping mall), but a fierce woman.

    So you are going to move on I hear. Get over it, I hear. Lovely.

    Did you enjoy the things you indulged in? Then don’t ruin it for yourself! Let it be what it was! Bliss! It’s like a vacation from food..if you were eating “Bermuda” every day, it would soon become not special, and you’d get comfortable and lose sight of the things that are so beautiful, and easy to take for granted.

    Food is delicious, drinks. YUM. I feel amazing, having a hard time keeping my hands off of myself..not in a kinky way. I don’t recognize the person I am seeing in the mirror. AT ALL!! I have never touched this woman, I have hips! I have ribs, I can practically feel my organs! They were covered up in so much fat! I want to see the woman under this covering. I am going to start seeing a counselor, see if I can’t figure out why it’s there..

    I, like you am going to make right choices. Even when they are difficult.

    and Every once in a while.. I’ll take a vacation.

    I’ve enjoyed your blog. Kudos
