I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do.

I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do.
I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do.
I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do.
I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do.

I need to just keep repeating this... over and over and over until something soaks in.

So... along with the holidays & my wedding came an extra ten-ish pounds. soo.... disappointed in myself. I am so so... sad.

Now, here I am.. back right around the 200 mark... where I never thought I would be again. UGH.
I know what needs to be done. I know how to eat clean. I know the exercises I need to do so.... why can't I get out of this funk. I mean, today is the first day this week that the voice in my head won over the voice at the gym... but... I feel terrible. I know I have to let go and move on I just... I am having such a HARD HARD time getting out of this funk. I know the frame of mind that I need b/c I got it 70 some pounds ago... but... I can't get there..... I know if I can just get through a week or two of consistent workouts I will be well on my way and that frame of mind will snap back... so, why am I feeling like it's so hard? Am I scared of ACTUALLY succeeding in this final half til my goal? I don't know... but, I am feeling overwhelmed.. so... I am going to type out "I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do." and put a copy in my bathroom, kitchen, etc. where ever I need to so It can keep reminding me. I need help.

    Beth! You can do it! I think that is the BIG problem..I think as people start to hit their goal that they get afraid of actually hitting that goal. I had lost 56 lbs and got to a weight I had not seen in YEARS..And then..I just stopped and now have gained back that 56 lbs plus...I am not happy...I am miserable with what I did..I am starting again but just remember that no matter will not be happy gaining back the weight EVER. You can do this! You already have done AMAZING!! Try to remember that it is ONLY 10 lbs! If you keep going and get out of this funk then you will have won! It's harder to gain back more and then realize that now you have to work hard all over again just to re-lose weight that you have already worked your butt off to lose. I know you can do this and I am rooting for you every step of the way!! I always talk about what you have done to my sister and how amazing you looked when I saw you at Sarah's Tupperware party!! Keep doing it!! Kristen

    You can do it...think about what has changed......remember doing the same old thing gets you the same old results whether it was good or bad. bad gets bad good gets good. Think!

    In all your adversities there lies the seeds of equivalent advantages. In every defeat there is a lesson showing you how to win the next time.

don't repeat it
