Don’t Smash The Wagon

heart2.jpg.fpxIF YOU FALL OFF THE Trim Healthy Mama plan WAGON —– after having smashing success —– DON’T SMASH THE WAGON!  GET UP… TO YOUR KNEES… GIVE YOUR PLANS TO THE LORD, CRY FOR HELP, CRY FOR HOPE —- DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF THE SILLY nonsensical repetitive INDULGENCE THAT GOT YOU TO AN UNHEALTHY PLACE/WEIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

So you fell off the wagon.

DO NOT GIVE IN TO THE LIE THAT YOU ARE BETTER OFF WITHOUT THE PLAN–THAT YOU HATED IT ANYWAY — THAT YOU JUST WANT TO BE FREE TO EAT WHAT YOU WANT and just be normal again.  THOSE MAY BE TRUE FEELINGS, BUT THE LIE IS THAT YOU CAN EAT WHAT YOU WANT AND NOT FACE OR PAY FOR THE CONSEQUENCES.

DON’T GIVE UP AND SAY: STUPID PLAN, STUPID SCHEDULE, STUPID CHAOTIC BOOK, STUPID INGREDIENTS, STUPID RECIPES, STUPID CONFUSING NAMES AND STYLES AND… and… and…  STOP IT.  SERIOUSLY, STOP IT.

don’t smash the wagon

YOU SOUND LIKE A SILLY, SELFISH CHILD WHO WANTS CAKE AND TREATS AND NO RULES and no weight gain.

Oh wait.  Remember?  That’s the beautiful thing you discovered when you began implementing the plan and trying out all the ideas and found some truly delicious recipes you enjoyed!!  Remember?  Yes, before the Cadbury eggs… before the Valentine’s Kisses… before the Christmas cakes-cookies-pies-fudge-candy…  before you gave into the lie that you don’t really care anymore anyway. 

Only your enemy the devil wants you to believe you will never get there and you might as well not even try.
Remember?  Remember when you realized that you were doin’ it?!?!  Remember when you were WINNING?!?? You were following the plan and LOSING weight!  You LOST WEIGHT  Remember?  Yeah, that was YOU!  You lost that weight!  YOU did it.  YOU GO, GIRL!!!

So you fell off the wagon. 

  Get up. GET UP.  SERIOUSLY, GET UP AND GET GOING… YOU CAN DO IT———–YOU’VE ALREADY PROVEN IT.

…………said I to myself in the mirror.

  • You’re so welcome, Karen. I’m thinking we’re not alone here on this. I am trying to be diligent to not give in…….. and it’s so hard for me this time. I cannot believe that for *months* I did not deviate from the plan—even though it meant eating the same basic things over and over and over again day after day—even though I was making cakes, catering meals and cooking for our large family. And then… yes… and then I didn’t.

    God bless your journey! That’s my prayer for each one of us attempting to attain and enjoy healthful meals, proper weight and healthy lives.Thanks for commenting.

  • Pamela, thank you for this! You summed up my feelings exactly, and this is the just the pep talk I needed to get back on track.
