Why are you thinking about this?
Monday, May 06, 2013
I think the lack of blog entries has proven my point : I don't know what I want. Or more so, I don't know if I'm willing to do what it takes to achieve what I want.
It's not that I haven't been thinking about it. A lot of you guys have mentioned books surrounding the psychological side of dieting and losing weight. I have looked into that. I can't say I'm ready to invest any more money in this...I've spent money on weight watchers, p90x, a gym membership--you name it. I can't spend any more money on this.
How sad, huh? Health and losing weight should come far above money and wealth (or lack thereof). But there comes a point where, you can't just keep investing or planning; you just have to go out and do it.
The doctor I work for put it so perfectly for me, I started to tell him about my plans for starting a kick boxing class and I said, "I think what I'm--"
And he cut me off, "Don't think. Why are you thinking about this? Just do it. Haven't you worked with me long enough to know what I tell patients to do to lose weight? Go out there and do it"
..."Okay"....because I mean what do you say to that? When someone is so completely right and cares about you enough to be a little harsh?
Now I'm trying...ahem...doing just that. I'm taking it a little at a time, but it's better than nothing. It's better then just *thinking* about change.
