How much does guilt weigh?

One of the best things about losing weight is getting rid of all the 'burdens' that being overweight brings... the worry of ill health, the misery of clothes shopping, no self esteem, the embarrassment, the humiliation and the guilt... Oh the guilt... It's probably the top reason I had to rejoin every single time!

Guilt can take you to a very dark place... it makes you feel like a complete failure unless you're doing the programme 100% perfectly... and when you don't, your self esteem takes another knock... 

Guilt brings you to a point, where you believe that you really are useless... You might as well not even bother trying to change your life... Your self belief becomes so negative that you just create a book of 'evidence' in your mind that just proves you just can't succeed at anything... 

The truth is a million miles away! There is a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson 'Finish each day and be done with it, you have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in - forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day...'

The truth is, we're all humans, not robots, not angels, not saints just human beings... Which means we're not perfect, nobody is... in fact we're perfectly imperfect! Would you want to live with a saint?! Me neither! So how about we all stop torturing ourselves every time we trip and fall... Tomorrow really is a new day...

There are so many things in life that are beyond our control but there's are so many things that we can... How we shop, how we cook, how we set an example to children, how we spend our money, these are just a few... and when we take charge of these little things, big changes happen... Suddenly we're in charge of our health and well being... and our families health and well being too!

In less time than it takes to buy an expensive pre-packed 'time saving' meal, you can prepare your own homemade meal! Smart Points is just that... you get savvy, you meal plan, you have dinners ready in the freezer... you know how to spend your points wisely... how to bulk out dinners so you CAN enjoy a treat if you really want it and it makes it easier to lose weight, easier to save money and how much better do you feel even losing one pound and knowing you've made a difference to your your health... plus you feel in control! 

It's so good to see people succeed but it's nice to be there when people stumble and fall and who doesn't, show me one weight watcher who hasn't had a slip up on their journey! So start a new day and a new week free from guilt, free from the pain of guilt and free from the burden of guilt! Guilt is a wasted emotion... as Elsa says, 'let it go' and you'll feel lighter straight away!
