Do we really want success?

Thursday, August 08, 2013

If a person really wanted to go to bed earlier at night, but continued to stay awake late, do they really want to achieve the original goal?
If a person really wanted to learn french, but never spoke french, do they truly want to learn french?
Same with weight loss. If I truly wanted to lose weight and get fit then I would stop binge eating, right? But I never have.
So I ask myself, is this just laziness, stupidity or a fear of success?

    Sometimes I have been all three! I try to do everything in moderation but it isn't easy. My biggest motivator is that I finally realize that in order to control my diabetes and be healthy I have to do healthy things. I also think about how much better I feel when I eat healthy food and get in some exercise.

When I screw up I don't beat myself up anymore. I just keep on trying to do better at the next meal or snack. I don't wait to get back on track.

You are thinking about your behavior and that is half the battle. emoticon

    Good question, I will binge on chocolate if I restrict myself. So I buy a bar of dark chocolate and have a little every day. Everything in moderation. I also have been trying to go to bed earlier + want to get up before 9:00 because my daughter is going back to school soon. I need to get her on the bus early. It will just take time for me to adjust.
