Positive First Week (Post Reflection)
Monday, October 21, 2013
Last week you know I spent some time reflecting on the past 2 years and what has stalled me and my weight loss goals. Each of those 2 years I lost the weight over the course of a year and then literally put it back on in under 2 weeks after returning from Mexico. Both years my job was out of control and created obstacles that led me to regain the weight in minutes after working months to get rid of it. Yes, I can put on a year of weight loss achievement in about 7 days, don't ask me how but I came home from Mexico at 164 and within week I was back up to where I am now at 176.
This year is not going to be that year. I spent time reading all of my old blogs and recognized a lot of trends throughout those years. False hope, false starts, believing and working toward things that were never going to happen. I couldn't move forward toward my personal goals when I spent so much time and energy working toward a career goal that was a lie. That takes a toll on a person. That isn't going to happen this year because I'm not going to get involved with anything at work that is a lie.
Maybe now for once in more years than I can remember the focus will stay on me and I won't get lost in trying to accomplish something at work that isn't going to happen. This is the year of me and my goals, not what work wants to do to me. Obstacles are removed, it's up to me now to really make this work. I'm done making old mistakes and I'm glad I read the old blogs and actually took notes.
Thank you for sticking by me everyone!
