Well, itís March. How did that happen?
My weight loss efforts arenít where Iíd 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 ďInsanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different resultĒ.
I know Iíve blogged about this before, but it seems I didnít listen. My weight loss efforts are insane, and after years of ďtryingĒ, itís 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. Sheís always complaining about how messy her house is (since Iíve known her). She doesnít work full time, there have been times when she doesnít 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 donít want to live like that, are embarrassed by it, even hate it, but deep down you are comfortable...or youíd clean it up. Period.
Wait, Iím 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.
Iím suddenly looking at my weight loss journey differently. Itís time to look more into my head, change up what Iím doing.
I love light bulb moments.
