Here We Go.....Again

Friday, February 08, 2013

How many times have I been at this exact place--unhappy, overweight (obese technically when you look at BMI), knowing I need to change and feeling the sting of self-inflicted failure. So frustrating and so depressing. I try to figure out every day what is wrong with me. People all around me losing weight and I just go through my day afraid to even try because I know I will fail again. How do I get rid of that single fear--FAILURE? I am working to figure this one out. It's not an easy thing. Hoping that this is the time I succeed.

    I have been in this exact same place, more than once! I also deal with being a perfectionist - if I don't follow the program exactly (exercise, meal plan) I have failed. It has helped me to set very small achievable goals and try not to worry about the numbers on the scale, just recognize that by changing each small thing, a little at a time I will eventually get there and improve my health along the way. So I started with drinking water - that was all I focussed on for a week or more until I got it and drinking water is a habit. Then I added 10 minute exercise. The last thing I changed is eating in my calorie range (because it is the hardest for me). I still have a long way to go - next will be a healthier diet adding fruits and vegetables - but for now I am happy with how far I have come. Hang in there! Baby steps. emoticon
