I've been in the self destruct mode these past 5 months. I realized that it was senseless to be on this site and not do the things that needed to be done. I was very good at thinking, and planning, but I was horrible at the Doing. The truth is out, I do not want to DO everything it takes to loose weight. I was picking and choosing which steps of the Spark Solution I would DO. I thought I knew more than the experts. Wrong! It's no wonder I weigh more today than when I started. Facing this truth about myself is actually less painful than my avoidance of the truth. I am now willing to DO and to follow the Spark Solution as written. Monday is my official start day. I have learned all to well, you don't get anywhere by just planning, it takes DOING.
Truth #2, I am a perfectionist. If I can't do something perfect then I don't want to do it. I want it to be easy, I want it to be quick and I want it to be perfect. Talk about debilitating! I want to go from zero to 100 in 2 seconds. This thought process is why I don't DO. By starting out small, becoming consistent with the small steps, I will be able to be consistent when my steps become larger. I want to become one of the successful weight loss members of Spark People. To be that, I need to DO the Spark Solution as written and without any modification to it. The truths have been faced, it's now time to start DOING. My new motto is, Don't think, don't question, just DO IT!
