I need to watch out for that vague feeling that I am failing

Monday, December 03, 2012

I need to watch out for that vague feeling that I am failing. The truth is, I am mostly succeeding. I am tracking my food each day. I am exercising each day. I am on SP each day. I am journaling at least 3 times per week. What I am NOT is perfect...I need to wrestle my calorie intake down...it is not terrible, but I won't lose weight until I can get it lower.

But because my calorie intake is higher than I want, I feel like I am failing, and have that feeling like I am already off track...which makes me want to behave off track. I need to be very careful of this!

    the perfection mentality is what actually causes failure. we feel we need to reach all of our goals ASAP instead of getting all we can out of life and growing.

    That feeling has attacked me in the past and has beaten me. i am working more on what i can do and to keep improving.

    You may be gaining muscles and that will make it seem like you are not losing weight. Don't always go by the scale but also how your clothed feel on your body and if you have a tapemeasure then also measure your body too. That is another way to see how you are progressing too. Not just by the scale because it can lie to you and it does not tell what is happening to the inside of your body.

    Just look at it in a more positive way. Just because it is off doesn't mean you are failing what was it before you were tracking. And every time you do something you know isn't the best for you just dont be negative and you have to stop saying and talking to yourself negatively. You started this for you and you need to do this for you. Be nice to you. Good Luck and Keep Pushing every day that you do good is a day closer to a healthier and happier you.
