My time is now!

I'm pathetic. I really am. I make excuses for myself all the time. I justify and cajole my mind into allowing me to do things I'm not supposed to do. I keep myself from being who I want to be because, hey, I like myself just fine, right?

 Not right. I hate where I am right now. I'm not healthy, I'm not happy, and something's gotta give!

That something is me. 

My TOPS Pledge (any of you TOPS members?)

I am an intelligent person.

I know what to eat, when to eat it, in what quantity and how to couteract bad food decisions. I know how to get where I want to be. I also know how I got where I am.

I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me.

When I have a bad day, I really don't feel comforted by over-eating. I don't feel comforted by eating two suppers, grazing on chips, ice cream, and cookies. I don't feel comforted by letting fast food "solve" my problems. In fact, it makes me feel that much worse. Instead, I can write a letter (and not send it) to whomever or whatever is bothering me. I can have a cup of coffee or a low-calorie ice cream cone. I can take the time to think about how my choices affect not only my present, but my future.

Every time I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desire, build up my injured ego, or dull my senses . . . 

I DO NOT need junk food to make me feel better! I DO NOT!

I will remember that even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see HOW FOOLISH I CAN BEEN.
