About 2 years after my son was born, I decided to lose the last of my “pregnancy weight.”
Or rather, my “I eat too much crappy food” weight.
After all, my son was 2 years old.
Pregnancy had nothing to do with my added poundage – and more to do with adding pizza and pretzel goldfish into my diet.
So I sat myself down for an honest conversation – writing to me via that “soul megaphone” called “a journal.”
Plus, personally I’m discerning about the clothes I wear – because I care about showing up at my best.
So…if I’m discerning about these many, many things – I should be discerning about the foods I allow to enter my mouth.
Pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches and pretzel goldfish are NOT the food choices of a discerning person.
After all, discerning people make discerning food choices!
Plus, I started to be more discerning about how my home looked (tossing out old worn out furniture and old worn out clothes, re-organizing papers, books, shoes – and giving away Ari’s old toys).
It’s really quite amazing the power Neuro-Linguistic Programming and mindful “word choice” has upon one’s life.
