Don't Postpone Success

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, August 25, 2013



Today is day 3 of my re-start, and it feels good! I'm so glad I was honest with myself (and everyone else) last week and admitted that I was off track and gaining back some of the weight I've worked so hard to lose over the past 18 months. What a relief to come clean!

When I finally accepted that I was not doing my best anymore, I knew I had to give myself a fresh start. To be honest, I was going to wait until Monday to start over, or maybe even wait until September 1st. But then I thought..."If I wait until Monday or September, I might not start. And even if I do, why postpone my success until then?"



Truth is, you don't need a Monday or a new month to start. You can start right now! Even if you had a donut for breakfast and a Big Mac for lunch, who says you can't start over right this very minute? Why not show how determined you are to get on track by doing it NOW? You know what? You'll feel like such a hardcore warrior if you start fighting today, instead of putting it off until tomorrow!

    Great Job, Pixie!!! I used to be in that mindset that I had to wait until Monday or the new month to start over, but no more. That is something that Spark People and my inspirational Spark friends have taught me. Glad you're back on track. You can do it!!!

Hugs,

Lainie

    I set the one "about many things can be done in a day" as my desktop.
I love all the different inspirations you put in your blog.
Also, don't we ALL really have to "restart" every morning?

    I agree, I used to always say, I'll start Monday, or the 1st of the Month, etc. Truth is there is NO better time than the very next meal and that's how I try to do now when I go off track.

    I agree completely and actually had this conversation with myself, today,, before I saw that you had a new blog!

emoticon Today , right this minute, is the time to start, or start over.

Thank you Pixie, for another great blog.

    Love your milepost sign. I've lost 68 pounds, and doesn't that sound good? My body seems to be accepting my food plan, but exercise is a huge problem. Inertia has me in its grip. But you're right . . . today is the time to start changing that.

    As tempting as it is to wait till optimum where all systems are pointing in the right direction it is a bad idea to postpone constantly as women find out when postponing motherhood too long and then fertility decreases. It is all a matter of living in the NOW like dogs who just live in the moment.

    What an excellent blog! I have had to stick to the basics when I feel myself spinning out. It's easier to "fix" that spin out when you feel it happening rather than waiting! Good job and fantastic message! Inspiration, actually!!

HUGS and thanks for sharing. It takes courage to admit things to ourselves, but even more to share it with others. You have no idea how many you've helped with sharing! That's certainly the upside of the whole situation!
