I can do it

I have lost 17 pounds since we started our diet.

For the first time in a long time, I am actually starting to believe I can do this! It's like I'm scared to believe I can, because of the repeated failures in the past. But the past doesn't exist any more. Now is all there is. I have to cut the ties to the past. Like Louise Hay said, you have to move past that and let it go and release it.

So today, I release my past in regard to dieting. It isn't important any more. It doesn't define me. It has nothing to do with my chances of failure or success. I am changing my life, not dieting.

And I love myself, just the way I am.

    You're giving me hope as I need to shed a few around the middle.
