Main Challenge (30 Points): The psychological Challenge. A huge part of losing weight involves the psychological challenges we face. For example what we say to ourselves makes a huge difference. Many times we find ourselves saying these negative things to ourselves despite our best attempts to stay positive.We may say things such as
"I don't have enough time to......."
"I can't keep motivated due to...."
"I have tried everything to lose weight and it never works..."
These get in the way of our success.
Let’s thwart these issues right now. Pick a psychological issue that gets in the way of your success then Blog about it in two separate parts.
1. Write about it as though it is happening to you right now. Describe your current line of thinking, what you say to yourself, really try to make yourself believe this to be true.
2. Then blog about how it felt to think that way and how you are going to change it.
Here is my sentence:
I have been in a plateau for over two years and I will never get out of it, no matter what I do. This line of thinking runs through my mind a lot. I have lost hope. I think it's Impossible.
So how am I going to change it?
I love the new Spark page and how you can create your own virtual inspiration board. To help change my way of thinking I'm going to look at my Board every day and remind myself of just how far I've come....
I've lost 43 inches....
I've lost 100 lbs...
I went from a couch potato to a marathoner....
I can do this!!
I'm also going to visualize myself at my goal weight and start meditating.
On a physical level I'm going to start strength training (not just talking about doing it) and yoga to help with both strength, stress and body acceptance...
Also I just read my spark page and what does impossible spell?
