I've been thinking about sabotage and how we are so quick to sabotage ourselves. I give excuses as to why I didn't exercise, what I ate, Why I ate, etc. It's easy to do. I came up with cards that listed ALL my excuses and then what I called "excuse busters" and put the reality and truth of it. For example.
Excuse: I'm too tired to exercise.
Excuse Buster: If you wait until you have more energy, you'll never do it. Exercise will help give more energy.
But I have been also thinking about others in life who may intentionally OR unintentionally sabotage you. Someone I love dearly is very overweight and any time I try to eat healthy they are pushing bad food on me. I find thinking these things through really helps with the weight loss journey because ALOT of it is mental.
On that same side of it, I have viewed weightloss as a long term investment. It will take many months, maybe years to get where I want to be. But if I keep taking steps forward, I will get there and you will too. We will have ups and downs, but get back up and keep going. Stop beating yourself up.
