Score is time for each round and total timeOn my blog last week, Cheri made this comment:

“I remember when I was about 30+ lbs overweight, I wouldn’t do things I really wanted to do because I was embarrassed and ashamed about the fat. Totally insecure and locked in a box because of it. Then I read this magnet that said, “Fat Ballerinas wear three-three’s.” Brilliant. They might be fat but they still danced. I realized a fat cell is a bunch of phosphate bonds and anything else, whether that be self-hatred, insecurity, etc; I put there. That’s when I started cleaning out the fat cell. Lost 10 pounds just by switching my way of thinking.”

Notice she didn’t say that the important things was that she switched her diet, she didn’t say it was that she changed her workout routine. Sher probably did, but the most important thing that she changed was her way of thinking. THAT alone was what gave her the access to having a new kind of life. She blew up the paradigm that if you’re overweight, you should be ashamed. No! “The may be fat but they still danced!” It was clear that she didn’t need anyone’s permission, even her own, to enjoy and take care of herself.

If you’re waiting for the right plan to change your thinking about what you should do, you’re barking up the wrong tree. You’ve got it totally backwards. It’s not always your thoughts that will change your actions. Many times it is your actions that will change your thoughts.

Thanks for the reminder, Cheri.
