just sayin’ … relieved

Saturday, January 23, 2021

Worked on removing 3 layers of paint off of overhead bin doors. There is 4 of them. One down … 3 more to go. Hubby is a champ … but not a happy camper. Remember, he hates manual labor.

DS1 called this morning to say … they got insurance for him. I am soooooo relieved. It covers pre-existing issues. DIL is diabetic. And DS1’s brain tumor. Whew.

They did NOT get the results from his blood work … yet. So, he has not started the meds.

One step forward … then pause.

More exerts from Steve #100:

Fat people are influenced by fat people.
Fit people have become desensitized to the opinions of fat people.

Fit people have learned to block out the opinions, beliefs and philosophies of the masses. Why follow the advice and example of people who are barely getting by?

Critical Thinking Question: Have the opinions of other people contributed to your weight problems???

Action Step: Stop listening to fat people who want to advise you on how to get fit. Remember that most people aren’t very good at getting what they want. Make a decision to only allow experts to guide and influence you along your path to fitness.

My extra pounds have nothing to do with the opinions, life styles or behaviors of anyone … I mean no one … but me.

I may have been taught the fallacy … food will make you feel better when life is difficult … but my eating behaviors are on me.

BFF overeating doesn’t sway me to do the same.
Unfortunately, Hubby’s healthy eating habits have not swayed me either.

I am currently struggling with my new Doc coz she is morbidly obese … bigger than me. You can know WHAT to do and NOT do it. I mean, hello … I know what to do. But she is supposed to be a member of my team to get me healthy???

***Remember that most people aren’t very good at getting what they want.***

Well, I’m gonna break that rule, Steve !!!

Just do it … already. No matter what.

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

**Within this blog is my longwinded thoughts based on my reading and humble understanding of Steve Siebold’s Die Fat or Get Tough and years and years and years of searching for thinness and … self-peace

    Hooray for insurance!

    The posters have said what I would say and then some. And, sometimes I think I've gotten the right idea.

    My BFF is my sister in law and she's built like some of us....
    We start out trying to eat right on vacation then fall into bad habits together. Kind of a "giggle and eat it anyway" team. Last night I watched her finish first and go for more even though she ordered(take-out) the "healthier" dish. For the first time in a VERY long time I was 3rd done of our 4.
    Maybe I've learned something?

    Your new doc doesn't sound like a healthy lifestyle role model,
    but maybe she will be inspired by your example!

    Reminds me of my mother saying, “be careful of the company you keep.”
    And my DH telling my teenage son,”when you run with the dogs, you smell like the dogs.”
    I do believe that spending time with someone whose habits don’t support your goal could be a challenge.
    I certainly won’t discriminate and choose friends on the basis of how much they weigh.
    I agree with MEADSBAY that socializing with food and drink with someone who is not concerned with the consumption could lead to indulging.

    So glad to hear that your son and daughter-in-law have some health insurance that will help them deal with the upcoming medical bills.
    I sort of agree with if you hang around with fat people you’ll be fat… Mostly because I think there’s always a lot of cookies and treats and pizza and alcohol and stuff around when we are together.
    One of my BFFs has always been very thin and she’s always saying let’s go for a walk let’s go for a walk.
    We taught together for many years and she would sit at our lunch table and talk and talk and talk and the time would be up and she might’ve eaten half of her lunch… She’d rather talk than eat.
    We were lucky to get 20 minutes to eat our lunch and she wanted to waste five minutes of it going for a walk.

    Keep on thinking, "jes' sayin'", and doing... no matter what! Success is in your own hands! emoticon emoticon

    Snow is turning the city white again, after a week of "not so bad" and in fact record high temps. Ah, well, how often do you see over 50*F in Nebraska in January. Grateful for the respite... now out to get the mail... in the snow!
