Attitude Is Everything

So here's the deal ...

6 weeks ago I was getting fatter by the day, sad as all get out about someone that made me insanely crazy (seriously, seriously crazy) and feeling as if my world was caving in from pretty much every direction.

Today I am 20 pounds lighter, happier than I've been in a long time and that crazy-inducing person and I are getting along fine now (friendly even) and things are looking way up on all fronts.

Do you want to know what made the difference in those 6 weeks?

I changed my attitude. 

I felt like crap.  I looked like crap.  But I wasn't going to let my general crappy malaise deter me.

So I came home on a Friday night, had one last burrito bowl/chips & guac from Chipotle, threw out all of the food in my kitchen that wasn't diet worthy and dug out my tennis shoes.  Then I started all over the next day.  I woke up on Saturday with no willpower, but determined to get my diet and my life back on track.  It was slow going at first, but I had a plan and I stuck to it for one meal, then two, then three and what do you know it is Sunday (I made it through an entire day successfully).  As I had one successful day after the other my confidence grew that I could get the diet train back on the rails and one day became one week, one week became one month and so on.  Now I am 6 weeks down the road and I feel great!

It is all in how you look at things. 

Change your Attitude.
Change Your World.

I did.
