Sweet Ce's Journal, 04 April 2013

This stuff works - no doubt.

Yesterday I wrote about my feelings. I just put it out there to this support net and then I was able to let it go. I went home last night and was in bed, lights out and sound asleep by 8:45 (ish)! I woke this morning refreshed and feeling a little more balanced. And when I checked the journal this morning there were supporting comments. Very, very good "advice" - the sharing of you own experiences validated me but I had already been able to just let go.

And that's the connection to the weight. I often just "can't" let go of things - including weight. But I certainly felt lighter this morning and even lighter now that I've read your comments.

So, just for today, I continue to focus on me; to enjoy the energy that "being light" accords me; to delight in the knowledge that I'm caring for me in a way that no one ever has and possibly ever will. And I'm glad for it. I'm not despairing or whining or clinging to people, places or things. I'm revelling in who I am today.

As Spring advances and yet the chill remains in the air, I am noticing the budding trees and finding joy in the early morning sunlight and breathing in the energy to take a brisk walk for 30 minutes - taking a subway that is much farther away so that I can stretch my legs, my lungs and my love of me!

And, thank you fellow journey-ers, for encouraging me to explore budding relationships, too. I'm glad we're here on this journey together.

Perfect. I read recently that holding onto guilt can prevent weight loss, and I believe it. The weight of emotions, whether true, right or valid, the very conflict of them, does weigh us down. I have felt the same many times ~ journaling here, letting the chips fall where they may, etc., is an immeasurable mental lobotomy. It may not show up on the scale right away but I think it is one of the most permanent 'weight loss' processes we experience. Good for you. I am so glad you're here.
