I recently attended my son's football banquet where CFL player Henoch Muamba spoke to the players about success and how to get there. Henoch told them about the 3 C's - consistency, courage, and confidence.
Consistency has stuck with me - I have had an epiphany of sorts. My weight loss journey has been inconsistent and as a result I have put forth a great deal of effort (cumulatively) with very little progress. If you've been here it's a horrible place, it's hard trudging and it's difficult to get traction. As Dr. Seuss would say, "unsticking yourself is not easily done".
Although it's painful to know I'm not where I thought I'd be at this date and time, the point is to look forward. to commit to the path and stay the course - CONSISTENCY!!!! What is motivating me right now is the realization of how much I'm missing out on and worse, my kids are missing out because I'm just plain too fat and out of shape to do the things I want to. My inconsistency is holding me back from being the person I aspire to be. I am so grateful for SparkPeople, not because I've experienced a great weight loss, I haven't and it's completely my own "not"doing. I am grateful for SparkPeople because it is here, I can come back to it and each time I do, I am learning and getting stronger in my knowledge and habits.
I say with renewed vigour - I will stay the course!!!!!! I will maintain the activities that keep me focused on a healthy life style and if I mess up, I will get back on track.
