Need a new vocabulary

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Been thinking about caring or not caring about my weight.
In 2008, I lost a lot of weight and then regained most of it. Somewhere during the journey I thought I got "tired of caring" and gave up. I remember saying to myself, "I don't care, I just want to eat what I want.
When I realized how much I had gained I started the journey again. I think I always care that I am overweight but I need a new vocabulary for those feelings. It wasn't that I didn't care but that I got tired of the work of the journey and quit.
I am currently feeling strong on the journey but expect that troublesome feeling to return sometime in the future. This time I want to have words to say to myself to keep my "I don't care." isn't the truth.
The words I've come up with to describe those feelings seem so negative. "I feel
tired, lazy, unmotivated, discourage." We all know that the journey IS hard work at times. There are no quick solutions. It IS hard to keep going at times.
I'd like to find positive words to talk back to those feeling so I don't give in this time and keep going. Any suggestions?

    I often use the words "am I better than this?" and "am I going to let this defeat me?" it comes in really handy on those jogs where I just don't feel like i have anything left to give but still have another minute or two to reach where I want to get to. Instead of just giving up, I ask myself "am I really going to let 2 more minutes of jogging defeat me? NO! I am undefeatable!"
Hope it helps. :)
