Do you fear change?

Monday, October 01, 2012

I had a huge aha moment when I read this! I would consider it a WooHoo! on better understanding myself. Let me know if you can relate?

    I definitely relate. I've also been overweight all my life, and just don't know how to be a "skinny girl". I do fear what will happen when/if I get to a "normal" weight, because, like you said, we've never been there. The unknown is always a little bit scary, but more often than not, once the unknown becomes known, it's actually a good thing (does that make sense?)

    Thank you, that was a good, insightful video. Your right it is the unknown that comes from change that scares people, not change itself. We need to overcome that we can't always predict and be in control of everything, and then we will be able to welcome change more often.

    I can relate. Change is always frightening when we don't know what to expect. I used to be "hope for the best and expect the worst" kinda person..but you have to look on the bright side because "the only thing to fear is fear itself - Napoleon Hill, and without fear of change or anything else to hold us back we can achieve what we once thought was impossible, we won't know what we are capable of until we get past that fear.

    Spot on, I'm thinking. At 67, I've had brief periods of ups and downs with my weight. I can look back and know that it was not only that I didn't know what to expect, but others have expectations too. That jolly, fat person who loses weight is not fat any more and probably okay with not putting on the act of being jolly; others aren't sure how to deal with that. My ups and downs were my choice, although I don't believe they were conscious choices.We teach people how to treat us and, when we become changed, they treat us like before--thinking we're still the same.

    I know I have a fear of reaching goal. I still have 100 lbs to go and I am already reading some of the maintenance team posts on their struggles. I am hoping by doing this I will be ready for being there.

Thanks for sharing.
