W.O.W. 21- Mind Over Matter

30 May

Hey Folks!
So I was catching up on Grey’s Anatomy (I’m a lil behind) and I saw the episode where Grey is having a moment. She isn’t feeling well, she has to take the boards, and she’s just feeling overwhelmed it seems and ready to give up. Christina, turns to her and says,
“Mind Over Matter”.

I tell ya, that one part has stuck with me all week. It’s what I keep telling myself when it comes to this journey I’m on of losing weight, being the best woman I can be, and discovering all that life has to offer each day.

Mind Over Matter.

This term can mean so much, yet it is quite simple. I have the capability and the power to do anything I put my mind to despite what my current situation or conditions may be.  Because with the power of God working through me, I have the power of changing the way I look at things, and pushing myself to higher levels each and everyday.

This means, that I am stronger than any obstacle or situation. Although I may feel physically weak, I have the ability to think positive, push, and prevail.

I’ve even heard some say, if you don’t mind it, it doesn’t matter.

So yes! I’m using this not only in my life journey but in this battle against weight and being healthy!

I’m stronger than any craving.
I’m stronger than any emotional eating.
I’m stronger than the people around me who say I’ll never make it.
I can make things happen.
I will make things happen.

Afterall, I’m focusing and putting my mind on the things that matter the most.

I may have had weak moments (we all do), but it’s during that time, I’m going to tell myself it’s “Mind Over Matter”, and I’m going to push through.

So far I’m already down 1 lb since last week, and I’m still pushing through.

So I encourage you today, to hold on to hope.


This weight loss thing isn’t easy, but it gets easier as time goes.

Not to mention, you will discover a new way of embracing life as  healthier, lighter, you. You will look at yourself in the mirror currently and see BEAUTY, not pick yourself a part. But after you see Beauty, you will look and find POTENTIAL.
We all have it.
You may not be where you want to be, but you have the power to make it happen.
I believe in you and I believe in myself.
Let’s conquer this weight loss thing together.

Like my friend Ashten says,

One. Step. At. A. Time.

Until Next Time, Much Love, Mrs. SPJ 🙂
