I'm scared, excited. It's a big day. When I did Jenny last time, I had this DVD/CD set "Touchstones for Success." I couldn't find it, so I ordered it off Amazon. I started listening to it again today (it even came with the little pouch filled with touchstones -- cute!). Things like becoming the compassionate observer (not being self-critical and overly restrictive when it comes to weight loss, and moving instead to an affirming, compassionate POV) and finding internal sources of motivation (moving my thought process from why I should do this to why I deserve this or why I will do this ).
It's a lot. I put food into my body, sure. But I also put thoughts, ideas, dreams into my consciousness. All of these things become a part of my being. I am on this journey because I deserve a better life: one filled with good health, mobility, adventures, and longevity. I want to enjoy my life, not merely endure it. I want to be an active participant for as long as I can. I want to continue to travel alongside my husband, to explore the world, to meet new people.
So tomorrow, I start on my latest journey.
