The Hidden Secrets To Controlling Your Attitude, Emotion, Fat Loss, and P.L.O.M. Disease…
OK, since this is my first post, I really want to inspire you with this life-lesson about fat loss. Plus, this technique will automatically help you improve every area of your life.
As someone who has battled cancer and won, had my ovaries fried, AND been zapped into menopause, I think I know a thing or two about struggling with weight gain and self-esteem.
That’s why I wanted this article to be about something that is near and dear to my heart: attitude, emotion and fat loss.
And since I turned 50 years old this year, I’ve realized that my attitude at this age is EVERYTHING.
Even though my hubby always makes me feel like I’m beautiful, I still struggle everyday with my own personal insecurities about my body and my weight.
I’ve learned some very valuable life (and fat loss) lessons over the last 30 years, and I wanted to share something that’s really helped me overcome those “bad days” since passing the 40 mark well over 10 years ago.
We call it P.L.O.M. disease. And if you’re not careful it will sneak up on you like a mosquito and bite you – right where it hurts. What does it stand for?
Poor Little Ole’ Me!
I come across people everyday who struggle with P.L.O.M. disease and sometimes it creeps in my head and gets the best of me. I’m sure you can think of several people in your life that suffer from this disease on a daily basis.
Every time you ask them how they’re doing you get the “Poor Little Ole’ Me” response.
Maybe you’re a lot like me and it gets you sometimes too!
If so, there IS something that you can do about it.
Here’s the secret of controlling our attitude, emotions and reactions to other negative people: AWARENESS.
I know it’s much easier said than done, but just by increasing your awareness you can overcome the negativity that creates a bad attitude and kick P.L.O.M. disease to the curb once and for all.
Most of the time it’s other people in our life that are negative and we allow them to puke on us with their problems, which indirectly creates negativity and a bad attitude in our own lives.
As my husband always says: “There are a few negative people in this world…and they move around a LOT!”
So true! Don’t let their negativity poison you. I’ve been guilty of this over and over again, but because I’m consciously aware of it…I have learned to ignore certain things that drag me down.
Whether it’s negative people at work, home, or even things like CNN (we call it Constant Negative News), don’t allow them to bring you down.
Typically when people tell you that they’re feeling FINE, what they’re really saying is that they’re…
(Joking of course, but hopefully you get the point).
Remember, attitude is a choice. A cheerful heart and attitude are like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.
One of the things I learned from a mentor a long time ago, was to wake up everyday, look in the mirror and say:
“I’m a great person inside and out.”
This leads me to my “take home” message:
ALWAYS be aware of maintaining a P.M.A. (Positive Mental Attitude) for your best body…and your best life! This will help you avoid the P.L.O.M. disease.
You’ll probably always have those bad days (just like me), but if you know the root of the problem at least you can try to put your thoughts back into a healthier spot. This will help get you back on track.
Sometimes we can’t control our bodies (especially us women :-)) and sometimes we can’t even control what happens to us. All we CAN control is HOW we react to it.
I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me over the last several years.
