I believe I have the strength to do so much but I have been battling issues of fear for the past few months. I can feel the stifling grip of fear choking me and preventing me from doing what I want to do each day. I know I can succeed but I don't believe it enough. I am afraid to start, I am afraid to continue, I am afraid to fail - I am afraid to succeed. I have been reading so many success stories and it seems like there are so many steps missing. We all have breaking points - some more than others. But as i write this I feel the anguish that comes with trying only to fail. I am TIRED, Frustrated and Scared. If I continue to live like I am now I will never know my full potential.
So after reading stories of people who plucked up the courage to say no to themselves and get up and move I have come back to this forum. Sparkpeople - the hard way. No more quick fixes, just exercise and eating healthily. I pray God's strength to remind me that moderation is better than deprivation, obedience is better than sacrifice and we are all promised one day at a time and no more.
Here is to taking it one day at a time, one meal at a time and one step at a time.
