Kick in the Tush Club Tuesday: Impossible (or possible) Weight Loss?

“There is no use trying,” said Alice. “One can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.  “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
— Lewis Carroll

How Many Impossible Things Can You Imagine Before Breakfast

Greetings Tushkateers!!! Are you as enamored with Lewis Carroll’s quote, as I am?  Imagine believing the impossible right now.  Go ahead … see what happens!

I imagined that I could walk on my hands throughout the city streets!  Wow, when upside down, one can really see things from a different perspective!!!  I was greatly enjoying the view, when my mind went conventional on me and suggested that my hands be covered like my feet (all that fungi on these dirty streets).  Thanks for the suggestion, oh wondrous mind of mine, but I am imagining the impossible, so no ‘hand shoes’ required!

Your turn.  Ponder the impossible.  Don’t allow your mind to stop you from imagining, having fun, or taking a journey that you’ve been wanting to take!  Make the impossible possible.

Speaking of IMPOSSIBLE THINGS!  Let’s read what Sarabeth has to say about her ‘impossible weight loss journey.’

Dear OLofWL ~  I was doing just fine – losing weight, dropping those pounds, feeling all happy with myself – until I went to my sister-in-law’s friend’s for dinner.

I didn’t want my sister-in-law to know that I was on yet another diet (she’s always got something to say about everything), and I didn’t want to offend her friend by not eating the food she was offering, which was “heart attack waiting to happen” food.  Everything was deep fried and dripping in cheap cheese.

I said, “Yes, thanks, this is delish” – to everything, with a fake smile plastered on my face. You’d think someone would notice.  The evening set me ‘off.’ That was nearly a week ago, and I’m gaining. I’m too terrified to weigh-in and see the number, but I can feel it. I can feel it in my big behind; actually my tush is bigger than big – it feels HUGE!

I fear that losing weight and keeping it off might just be an impossible task.  Please ‘kick me in the tush.’ Make me get back on track. Teach me how to say “No!” Thank you. ~ Sarabeth from Wisconsin

Dear Sarabeth ~ First things first!   Is there food in your mouth now? No? Good! You are back on track! Those who are successful at permanent weight removal are the ones who continually get back on track. As Our Lady of Weight Loss says, “All is forgiven. Move On!”

Now … that you are back on track and in your groove, let’s talk about the word “NO.”

Saying “No, thank you.” When we say “Yes” to what we want to say “No” to, we may avoid conflict and criticism with others; we may avoid being rejected (or the fear of rejection), but – hey – wait a minute. What about how you feel about you?

When we feel compelled to say “Yes” even when doing so is sabotaging our very personal and important goals, we are essentially saying “No” to ourselves. That can’t feel good.

Permanent Weight Removal (a.k.a. The Dropping of the Pounds) is about giving yourself what you ultimately want.  It may manifest in a slimmer body; but what is it that you really want? Don’t you want to love yourself, respect yourself, be free from that inner-critic that babbles on and on (well, my inner-critic babbles)?

Don’t rob yourself of YOU! The next time someone offers you food that you don’t want, consider it an opportunity to recommit to your SELF, to your goals.

I hereby give permission to you to just say NO THANK YOU to requests that infringe upon your health and happiness.  If you need a stronger kick in the tush, let me know!

 

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
