The Power Of Pictures
Friday, October 01, 2010
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?
