Hello, Beauties! Being excited to stand in line at the grocery store. If you belly laughed or shook your head dismissively when you read that, I completely understand. For over a year, the checkout line at the grocery store has been my nemesis. Today, I am excited to try again in my new reality – a perfect pain-free knee joint – able to generate the feeling of
Being excited to stand in line at the grocery store
For at least the last year, the grocery store – particularly standing in line waiting to check out – has been a challenge beyond my ability because of severe knee pain. X-rays confirmed I had ZERO cartilage resulting in nerve endings grinding against each other every time I moved.
It made me think of myself as old. Disabled. Weak. And worst of all dependent.
Thank goodness I have a spectacular mate that filled in the gaps created by my inability.
For a period of time, I completely opted out of grocery store trips.
REMEMBER: Every decision you make is based on something you think.
When you think of yourself as old, disabled, weak and dependent, you tend to heap self-judgment on yourself.
- If I’d just lost weight years ago, I wouldn’t have lost my mobility.
- You wore your knee out by carrying around all that extra weight.
and it just snowballs from there leading to that old familiar place of eating crap to quell emotion.
On the other hand, I know there are all kinds of folks who have this same challenge for reasons unrelated to being overweight. Thoughts are misleading that way. They convince you that the lens you see reality thru is valid.
Did I need knee surgery because I’m overweight?
Maybe? Maybe not! My friend had both of hers done last year and she is NOT overweight.
The cause is so much less important than the amazing results. I have this new perfect pain-free joint that can stand in line for as long as I desire. I am anticipating basking in the JOY of standing next to Ken instead of sitting on a bench across the room waiting.
Here’s the bonus! If you can find joy standing in line at the grocery store, imagine all the other sources that are already surrounding you every day.
Ready to fill your joy bank? Start by looking at what lights you up. What makes you feel powerful and confident.
JOY is the secret sauce of losing weight and never regaining it – to living well in a body you love.
Most of us need a guide to reach that place, to see past our own mind. That’s why you hire a coach. I’d love to be yours and walk you thru whatever your version of a bum knee looks like.
I’ve got the blueprint and can help you say yes to your next leap of faith.

I love you my Voluptuous Beauties!
