So, I have a lot that I want to say and share and I am not really sure where to begin. I guess I will begin with the name of this blog and why it is called what it is.
The name Letting Go comes from many years ago when I worked at Mother Webbs. I went to see a fortune teller who told me that at some point in my life, I was going to lose a lot of weight. Now at the time I thought she was crazy because I really didn't have a lot of weight to lose. She told me that they way I was going to do it was by thinking that I was letting go of the weight rather than losing the weight. She explained it to me like this...if someone told you that you lost your phone, your first reaction is to look for it because you want it back. And when someone would tell me that I have lost weight I am to say "thank you, but I have let it go". At the time I was not too sure about this but it always stayed in the back of my mind.
When you think of it, the word lost or lose is a negative word. When you lose something it is usually a bad thing so you automatically panic and try to find it again. When you let something go, it is a decision you made. It makes sense to me, I hope it makes sense to you also.
This blog is about letting go of weight and getting healthier. But in order to do that, there are many things that I needed to let go of, like; things that have been said to me about my weight in the past, my fears, my negative way of thinking, my worries, my past misfortunes, my feelings that I have let everyone down, and my feelings that I am not a good person. I am sure there are more but I can't think of them right now. Really, I needed to let go of all the negative things in my life and to focus on the postive things in my life.
I am going to try to use only postive words in this blog. If you want to comment, please try to keep your comments positive.
I hope I have explained where Letting Go has come from.
