Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Are You a Food Victim?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

Definition of a victim:  a person to whom life happens. ~ Peter McWilliams

Are You a Food Victim???  I hesitate to use the word “victim,” because it is such a strong word. But I’ve just got to ask … are you? a food victim? no? are you sure???

If you think that something or someone other than yourself is controlling your food choices and/or controlling your eating …

… Then, you are a food victim!

If you believe that certain foods are simply irresistible, as in impossible to resist, no way, can’t say “no” to that or that or even that, or that the Universe is conspiring against you, sabotaging your healthy living attempts at every turn on the road to Sveltesville, and that external circumstances hold power over you …

… Then, you are a food victim!

In order for your permanent weight removal project to be fully, entirely and wholly (or holy) successful, then you must step away from and move out of “food victim mode.”

You may not realize that you have stepped into the victim role and have embraced it as fully as you have, but if you are not taking full responsibility, if you are not exercising your ability to create a healthy lifestyle; if you  are allowing life to lead you down the path to donuts and other “deadly delights,” then you have taken on this ineffectual and hopeless identity.

Ask yourself … “Just how much of a ‘food victim’ am I?”

“We focus on the negatives, losing ourselves in the problem. We point to our unhappy circumstances to rationalize our negative feelings.  This is the easy way out.  It takes, after all, very little effort to feel victimized.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

No doubt fully embracing a healthy lifestyle takes time and effort. And true that you have a ridiculous amount of things to do, which you miraculously manage to squeeze into each and every day.  And true that there are only 24 hours in the day. But, but … BIG BUTT … bottom line, if you want to lose those extra pounds (and not find them again); if you want to be healthy, then you need to take responsibility.

Make ADJUSTMENTS!

1.  Adjust your expectations. In other words, get real – there are no quick fixes in life; no “diet fairy” that is going to visit you in the middle of the night and scoop your pounds away.

2.  The more you pay attention to and adjust your thoughts, your beliefs and your language, the more successful you will be.

3.  Actions follow thoughts. The more negative your thoughts, the more belief systems that are in place that no longer work for you, the less likely you are to take the steps you need to move forward in weight loss or any other area in life. Pay attention to the words you speak as well as your inner language.

4.  It’s UP to You! The power is in your hands (literally), not in the food. No one else determines your choices, your priorities, or your values.

5.  You can make the “best choice.” Perhaps, not the ideal or perfect choice sits in front of you, but a “best” choice does. Even if you have to pick the lesser of two evils, you have a better choice in front of you.

Watch the CHANGE!  Let go of your “food victim” identity, exercise your Best Choice Muscle and watch the change.  You may not have complete control over your circumstances, over your daily happenings, but you do have a choice as to how you respond.

Prickly Prayer: Dear Our Lady of the Hair Trigger?

smile therapyThis morning,  while thumbing through a copy of Our Lady of Weight Loss:  Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal, I came across a Prickly Prayer that hit the trigger spot, so to speak.   It was a good reminder and reading it gave me the anti-trigger boost that I needed!

I’d like to share it with you.  Here goes!!!

Prickly Prayer

Dear Our Lady of the Hair Trigger,

May that tired old tape that plays in my head–
the one that triggers me into a mindless pursuit
of chips, chocolate and other sinner’s delights,
be permanently erased!

And replaced by a soft, gentle breeze
that whispers
“luscious fruit.”

Amen

Continuing with yesterday’s thoughts on Creative Bridge Building, manifesting a better life, journeying toward our dreams, here are 9 quotes that can further inspire.

9 Quotes: Fear Builds Walls Instead of #Bridges

Fear builds walls instead of bridges. I want a life of bridges, not walls. ~ Lisa Wingate, The Prayer Box

We are told never to cross a bridge until we come to it, but this world is owned by men who have “crossed bridges” in their imagination far ahead of the crowd. ~ Anonymous

To embark on the journey towards your goals and dreams requires bravery. To remain on that path requires courage. The bridge that merges the two is commitment. ~ Steve Maraboli

A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare to the jeweled vision of a life started anew. ~ Aberjhani

Up on the Brooklyn Bridge a man is standing in agony, waiting to jump, or waiting to write a poem, or waiting for the blood to leave his vessels because if he advances another foot the pain of his love will kill him. ~ Henry Miller

Do not always walk on the bridge; there is also a world under the bridge! Try different worlds; discover different worlds! Do something different ~ Mehmet Murat ildan

I am where I am because of the bridges that I crossed. Sojourner Truth was a bridge. Harriet Tubman was a bridge. Ida B. Wells was a bridge. Madame C. J. Walker was a bridge. Fannie Lou Hamer was a bridge. ~ Oprah Winfrey

Being nice is one of many bridges on the road to Happiness. ~ Donna A. Favors

The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go. ~ John Pierpont Morgan
