"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

Bonus Dose of Motivation

Tonight, soon, I am heading off to a 40th birthday party for a friend from high school.  There will be a few other high school friends, but it will be mostly people I don't know.


This is my nightmare combination.


Strangers, a party and my obesity.


Of course it is my obesity and the insecurity associated with it that makes this my nightmare.


I used to love parties and meeting strangers.


I am meant to be there in 30 minutes.  My hair is still wet, my face makeup free and I have no idea what to wear!


I let my DH off the hook as a couple of the other school friends will not have their husbands there and my DH hates meeting strangers even more than I do.


Motivation plus.


How much better would I be feeling right now if I was at or even closer to goal.


Immeasurably.


Self inflicted and now I must go dress and face my demons...


A party should NOT feel like such an ordeal!

Hi

Hope the 40th was not the ordeal you imagined it would be.

When we are self - conscious - we imagine people are talking about us when in reality it is not us at all
