My Weight Loss Ticker!

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

A midweek post!

So I spent much of Monday beating myself up for the weekend - there was cake (lots of - really, more cake than you could imagine!) and pizza and beer and there was no weigh in (I was going to sleep in but I was awake and knew the results would be bad so skipped it anyway...) and I felt guilty. Why do we do this to ourselves? I was reminded by a great Weight Watchers leader of Rafiki from the lion king...

Here is the dialogue in case you can't watch the video. There are such great and wise life lessons in Disney movies!

Simba: I know what I have to do. But going back will mean facing my past. I've been running from it for so long.

Rafiki hits Simba on the head with his walking stick)

Simba: OW! Jeez, what was that for?

Rafiki: It doesn't matter. It's in the past.

Simba: Yeah, but it still hurts.

Rafiki: Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

swings his stick at Simba again who ducks out of the way)

Rafiki: Ha. You See ....
