Weigh-In # 7

Alrighty, I'm a bit frustrated, but there's something that's going to get me through this week. Well, three things actually:

1.) "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." ~Albert Einstein

2.) Mom wants to start paying more attention to what we're eating, so we're going to tell each other foods we DIDN'T eat, foods we said "no" to.

3.) I went to church on Saturday (I know, I haven't been in years), and the message really hit home: The main one was, you can't expect to get where you want to be without a plan and without work. Basically, just take time to realize hey, this is going to be difficult, and then just get going. Also, another message was to let go of the "self;" realize why you're here and what your purpose is, and realize that it has nothing to do with "you" as an individual--instead it has more to do with something bigger.

This hit home because a) I really haven't been looking at this as a difficult thing. I'll get to a low-ish weight, and then think, alright! I made it! I can cheat now! Of course, that always ends up being a false sense of security that I give myself. I need to start thinking of this plan of action as a sacrifice and a job. Also, b) I need to also start thinking of this as part of what I'm giving back to the world. I'm using my talent to help the world, as a creative artist. I need to look the best I can so that my body can operate in any way it needs to. Otherwise, my talents are wasted because I'm not a complete actress in every sense of the word. Heck, Amy, you're in Hollywood--act like it.
