Paul the SparkPeople programmer says:
Wanting and doing are not the same things. Don't say you want something. DO what's necessary to get what you want.
Oh how often I've wished for healthy living. I want it but do I WANT it? I mean why do we/me continue to do the things that upset our healthy balance day in and day out if health is what we/I want?
Well I can't speak for you all but for me it is all about the journey. I travel these roads day in and day out. Oh I trip over stones, pebbles really because at first it is just a slip, then it turns into a walk over a boulder. Why? I know what I need to do, I know what I want to do, so how hard can it be to get it done? Really?????
Change is never easy for any of us. Change means leaving your comfort zone and heading to a whole new place. A place of discomfort at times, a place where your safety net...food....is not there so what is a person to do? Trust. Trust in yourself, trust that you will reach all your goals, but most of all trust in yourself that you are exactly what is needed to get there. So for trust to work you have to take one tiny step on that dirt road at a time. Feel with your toe first if you have to but take that first step. Then just continue that walk till your walking down that road with a skip in your step.
We can do this. We/me just needs to begin to trust in ourselves and what we/I can do.
