Arguing with the voices in my head

Saturday, February 13, 2010

So I have realized that when it comes to changing my eating habits and living a healthier lifestyle I am my own worst enemy. All day long I am contending with conflicting voices in my head. I hear, "I can do this" "This isn't so bad" "Wow, I can eat healthy and still keep calories down" but then out of no where I hear "Why am I bothering" "Not like I have to answer to anyway, just eat what you want" "Do I really want to be a slave to a calorie counter?

I just have to make up my mind to be stronger than myself to avoid such self defeating thoughts. I have to remember to daily, or several times a day, to look at my goals and the reasons why I am doing this in the first place. As I move along this journey I know the negative voices will become quieter and hopefully disappear for good.

    Good for you! I can empathize, I am so much more aware of what I can't have right now, and the voices in my head sound a lot like yours. Keep going, you're off to a great start.
