Keeping Integrity In Your Promises – FFF #200

Keeping integrity in your promises may be harder than you think when you are a compulsive over-eater. This is because by nature compulsive over-eaters are liars and will rationalize why they didn’t keep their promises. Is keeping promises all that hard? Yes and no. It all depends on how honest you are with yourself.

Think about it. Who are you being accountable too? You, that’s who. And if you tend to rationalize cheating, whom are you cheating. Yourself. So let’s stop it.

So how do we keep the integrity of a promise we make to ourselves? We are honest with ourselves to begin with. What does that mean you ask?

Here are some tips to keeping the integrity of your promises.

Take some time to define what you want to accomplish in making your promises.

  • Is it to lose weight?
  • Is it to break bad eating habits?
  • Is it to get healthier
  • Is it to change the way you use food and think about food?

Think about why you want to make changes.

  • Is it because you feel unhealthy?
  • Is it because you want to look better?
  • Is it because you hate being the fattest person in a group?
  • Is it because you know that your lifestyle as it exists right now is not conducive to the life you want and deserve to lead?

Are you realistic about your commitment to change?

  • You say you want and need to lose weight, but are you really committed to the process?
  • Are the changes you want to make realistic within the time frame you want to make them? An example would be I want to lose fifteen pounds in my first week, but I don’t want to change too much of what I am doing now? This would be unrealistic.
  • Can you be patient with the process?
  • Are you willing to make small changes over time in order to develop concrete new habits?

Getting healthy is a full time job. Are you willing to give full time to the job of losing weight even though you don’t have the hours to do it?

  • Are you able to commit to exercising every day?
  • Are you able to commit to planning your meals?
  • Are you prepared to give up foods you know are not conducive to your health and well-being?
  • Is your attitude in the right frame of mind to be committed to doing what it takes to get healthy?

These are the things you need to consider when making your promises to yourself. Do not take lightly the responsibility of making promises to you. Sure, if you fail, you are only answering to you. But where is your integrity when it comes to yourself? Each promise you make should be a promise you are prepared to keep.

Start small and build up. The more you keep a promises even if they are small, the more likely you will feel the courage to make and keep bigger promises. Success is in our own hands and no one else’s.

This is my 200th blog. The questions I pose to you about keeping promises are the things I have learned about myself through writing these blogs and trying to get healthier.

Aaron is on the right track to success, and we can be part of success bandwagon along with him. His methodology of making and keeping promises to ourselves helps us to recognize the changes we have to make, the path we need to follow, and the difficulty the roadblocks may be to being successful. Once we can envision our success, we are more willing to make the changes needed to reach our goals.

Here are my three new promises I plan to keep and prove my integrity.

  1. I will stop snacking between meals. Should I absolutely feel the need to snack, I will make healthy choices such as cut up vegetables, fruit, and nuts within reason.
  2. I will make time to exercise every day, wearing a pedometer, working my way up to 10,000 steps a day.
  3. I will ask myself before I eat if I am truly hungry or if it is just emotions or anything else other than hunger. If it is not hunger, I will work my through my need to eat, and not eat.

I’ll keep you posted as to how I am doing. I hope you join me, and please let me know how well you are doing. I would love to hear from you and help you. Helping you helps me too. Let’s prove to ourselves we have integrity in keeping promises to ourselves.

Until we meet again, this is Linda Misleh Wagner, Future Former Fatty.
