Funny the power of the mind at sabotaging your efforts. That is half the battle in realizing your goals. After losing 42 pounds in about 3.5 months I was actually hearing myself say, oh you really havent changed that much it would be so easy for you to go back to where you were. Thank goodness I was able to recognise these sabotaging thoughts and cut them off at the pass before they had any effect on my efforts. Wow, progress. I turned to my husband for support who reminded me of some things I had forgotten about my progress. That led me to really take a look at some photos I had that clealy show how I was feeling before I started compared to how I feel now in my current photos. The difference is obvious. I am a much happier, energetic, and thinner person now taking pride in how I look for I am proud of the investment and commitment I have made not only to myself but my family. Take a look at my pictures and think long and hard about where you have come from and where you want to be in your journey. What a refreshing realization to see you are unfolding the you-you really want to be.
What reminders do you have in place to help you in these sabotaging moments?
