What do you recommend? ~ B.B.
Dear B.B. ~ A couple of thoughts, B.B., if I may! (WARNING: “If I may” means that I am asking permission to give you a Kick in the Tush!!! With warmth and love, not too much of sting today!)
First of all, according to your standard insurance chart, a female who is 5’2″ tall ‘should’ weigh between 111 and 147 pounds! Therefore, by the grace of standardized charting, you are deemed ‘normal.’
You stated that you want to weigh what a person who is 5’2″ weighs and there you are … 5’2″ and just fine the weigh you are (ha!)! How does it feel to be ‘normal?’
Are you surprised? Did you think I’d say, “B.B., you SHOULD weigh 110 pounds???” Or perhaps, you were thinking 5 pounds off would do you?
The truth of the matter is that each one of us is built very differently, our weight is carried differently, and if there is anything that we ‘should’ do, it’s this:
1. Wipe out what the ‘agreed upon reality’ looks like and tap into your ‘inner thinner core.’ There is no ‘one fits all’ number of number range. Let the numbers float out there. Don’t take them in on a concrete, cellular level. Release the number thingy and let the numbers float out there …
2. Choose a non-number goal. When I first set off on my journey to Sveltesville*, I thought, “It would be amazing to fine my waist.” FINDING MY WAIST was my first goal. It was absolutely thrilling when I started to go from ‘box shaped’ to curvy! I can’t remember what the number was; nor does it matter. I could have been any number and not had a waist. You dig?
3. Look for What You LOVE About Yourself … and build from there. Even in my darkest moment, when I weighed in and I was the fattest ever, I still loved (aka appreciated) that I was willing to look at it, however painful, the truth of where my actions had brought me (essentially to a WW meeting… again). I loved that I cried real tears. Essentially, it was a painfully powerful moment. I didn’t say I was happy about it; I said that I loved that it was a real moment and I was present with my pain. In being present, I was able to ride it out and change. But that’s a bigger story – more than I can write here … )
Now … each and everyone of you, please. Toss whatever you think the “Agreed Upon Reality” is straight out the window, choose a non-number goal, and appreciate something about yourself. Appreciate that you are reading this and thinking! Reading and thinking is great. Thinking and pondering even better.
Think, ponder, change and finally, evolve.
That’s right …
… Don’t just improve. Evolve!!!
I hope this helps!!! I really do!!!!!!
Please (all of you! yes, ALL!!!), write me. What is your new goal???????? ~ OLofWL
