There is no limit to what it can do, if
you believe in it and give it the right tools . . . S

Thanks Steven! That’s 2 humans today who have made me smile to the point of tears for the beauty of the human heart. The other one is that cop in New York giving the homeless man socks & shoes because he was bare foot in cold weather.November 30, 2012 at 7:43 pm #40017

Yeah i have been putting on a bit of weight the last few weeks just stuffing my face way too much. It’s good to know i can lose it all again quickly though and i’m not as heavy as that guy so still got plenty of leeway. *sigh of relief* 🙂December 16, 2012 at 7:58 pm #40021
Interesting . . .
Typically my feeling has been that–seeing the possibility
of radical, transformational changes–we feel inspired
toward action, i.e. “Hey, maybe I could change my
life too! I feel inspired to try.”
However, I just realized that, like anything else,
this powerful message can be hijacked by the shadow side.
It can actually increase one’s personal inertia.
The reason is this: since one learns that the
possibility of changing one’s health in a radical way
for the better is doable, it can serve to decrease
one’s personal sense of URGENCY to make changes, i.e.
“No rush to make changes NOW, because whenever I get
around to it, I’ll be able to fix the damage I’m doing
currently.” Thus seeing inspirational changes can
serve to generate damaging self-talk that DELAYS
any personal changes from happening in the now.
This is not a commentary on you, Louis.
So don’t take it personally.
It’s something that I think we all do, to some extent.
I consider myself guilty of this as well.
Perhaps this is the reason why so many morbidly obese
people sit down and watch “The Biggest Loser” on TV–
while at the same time stuffing their faces
with 3000 calories of junk food as they watch the show.
Something to think about, anyway . . .
