Letting Go... Why is it soooo Hard

Okay, so I am sitting here thinking of somethings, and people I need to let go of, in order to move to the next level in life. And I'm trying to understand why it is so hard to do.

What makes it so difficult to let things go? Let's start off with me needing to let go of some of my bad eating habits. I know darn well, that I have to start eating better so that I can lose this weight. I don't mind working out, I can go to the gym at any time, and no real issue with doing it. But when it comes to letting go of the fast food, and junk food.... It seems so hard to do.

I know the benefits of eating right... Longer life, healthier, lighter leaner body.. But, nope.. Not Kellee.. Instead, "pass the potato chips please", or "can I have another cupcake please". It's so ridiculous!

Or whycome (I know that is not a word, I just wanted to use it..  lol). Whycome, it's an issue to let go of toxic relationships? People who are in my life, and add nothing but hurt in pain... You know the people that constantly pull on you, but never have anything to give back to you. Or those relationships that are hanging on by a string, that broke long ago, but you continue to try to do "patch" work on that string...

Hanging on to toxic relationships, is like drinking poison, and dying a slow death! 

What does it take to let go?? Courage! That's what it takes.. It takes Courage! Courage to stand up for my right to be happy. Courage to stand up for my right not to settle. Not to settle at a weight I hate to be, not to settle for people that mean me no good, (family and friends alike). Not to settle for a life that I'm not supposed to live. 

Merriam-Webster defines courage as: mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. I wonder if I have the courage to walk away from all the things in people in my life that are weighing me down. 

Can I even walk away from my own self, my own desires?  Those desires for the wrong foods, wrong people, wrong things? No matter the pain, I have to let go of those things in my life that is hindering me.. I may have to cry my way through, I may have to be very uncomfortable for a period of time, my flesh may try to defeat me... But, what's on the other side of "letting go"? What's on the other side of the pain? What's on the other side of the tears? FREEDOM!! That's what... FREEDOM!!

Who ever said life would be completely easy, but why make it even harder, by holding on to toxic things? If I have to, I will cry, scream, throw a fit, whatever I have to do... But I will Let Go of those things that are hurting my progress! I have to do it! There is NO other way.. Right!?! I mean who wants  to live with regret? Who wants to live holding on to things that is causing them a slow death? Not me!  I am going to live my life that Jesus died for me to live it... Abundantly!!

  I believe I have the courage to do all things! And starting at this very moment, I am going to put my courage to the test... Stay tuned... And if there are somethings, or people you need to let go of... DO IT!!

Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!

Why Do We Settle for Less...

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
