Each of these quotes or sayings speak volumes. How often do you wake up with the intention of having a fresh start and then you go to bed at night hating yourself or feeling like you've failed yet again.
For me it is about reaching a goal i've set for myself, I don't want to hear "your not fat" or "you don't need to lose weight" Your not me, you don't wear my clothes or live in this body, I know I don't have a lot to lose, but I have so much to gain by getting myself healthy and at a healthy weight. Yes i'm overweight. No i'm not obese but i'm overweight and I do have twenty pounds to lose. Now I also want you all to know that my twenty pounds is sometimes harder to work on then a fifty or more loss. Why? because I get sedentary, I listen to people say that I don't need to lose and I begin to think I can eat that, or what is one more.
I read success stories, and I so want to be one. But i've yet to reach any of the goals i've set. I get lazy, hungry, tired, bored. You know the symptoms. The lack of motivation is really my worse enemy. I say i'm going to get up and move more, get outside and start walking again, but then it is too cold, wet, i'm too tired. You get the picture. I"m the one letting myself down. So what to do? How do I motivate myself to finally aim for and reach my goals? I stay with spark, I start using my food scales for more than a counter ornament, I use my cups and spoons to measure as I go along. I get myself back to exercise and I just have faith in myself.
So if you like me are wondering if this is worth the work.....I have to tell ya it is so worth it. Just learning to love yourself is so worth the work.
