It's All in My Head
Friday, March 01, 2013
Well, it’s March. How did that happen?
My weight loss efforts aren’t where I’d like them to be. Not even close. I will probably have to add a few pounds to my ticker after my next Monday morning weigh-in. Really? Again? ENOUGH!
I keep coming back to the quote “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”.
I know I’ve blogged about this before, but it seems I didn’t listen. My weight loss efforts are insane, and after years of “trying”, it’s time to figure out why.
I was on the phone the other day with a very old, dear friend (old meaning since high school). She was complaining about how messy her house was. She’s always complaining about how messy her house is (since I’ve known her). She doesn’t work full time, there have been times when she doesn’t work at all, but the house never gets cleaned.
About 10 or 12 years ago I watched a Dr Phil Show about people with messy houses. He said something like: your house is that way because you want it that way or you would change it. You may think you don’t want to live like that, are embarrassed by it, even hate it, but deep down you are comfortable...or you’d clean it up. Period.
Wait, I’m that way about my weight. I must subconsciously have accepted being overweight. In my mind I must be okay with it, and I even sabotage my efforts to lose. Hummmm.
I’m suddenly looking at my weight loss journey differently. It’s time to look more into my head, change up what I’m doing.
I love light bulb moments.
