I’ve been in a stuck place for quite a while now where my weight and body are concerned. I know what to do, and I wanted to want to do it, but I just didn’t. I finally got tired of it and decided to get my act together and take a step. The one I chose was to go back to Weight Watchers, which I did last weekend. I’m not particularly concerned about time frame or goals; I just want to refocus and take one step at a time to get healthier.
One part of that was sitting down and creating a new thought collage. I used to make these every 6-12 months, or to mark a particular point in my journey. Some were happy, others full of rage and pain. Although I’d cut out things a year or more ago, I never got around to finishing the collage, which is the final part of owning the thoughts and feelings.
I collected some magazines and cut stuff out yesterday, adding in some that I found in the envelope of previously snipped pieces. Most I couldn’t use because I’m simply not in the same place anymore. This is a much healthier place to be.
