Self Sabbotage

Saturday, March 08, 2014

So after a week of workin my ass off, and following my JC menu, I had broke 2 goals (last friday). I was so excited as anyone could tell. Then I sunk, way down. Right from Saturday afternoon, to Friday. It was a mess. I knew what I was doing was wrong as was gunna end up kickin me in the ass come Friday morning when I stepped on the scale. So why was I doing it? Why was I continuing to eat? I wish I knew!! Do I not feel that I am worthy of success?? Cuz I am! Do I need to fail to get back the motivation to keep going? Is losing 12 lbs and beating a weight loss goal 10 days early not enough motivation? I thought it was. That 3 lbs I lost 2 wks ago came back last week and mocked me through the numbers on the scale. I want this week, and every week from here on out, to be different. I WANT to lose the weight! I WANT to succeed! I WANT to fit into my clothes again! I WANT to feel good about myself! I WANT to break goal after goal after goal! So how do I stop from sabotaging myself the next time I have a good week??

    First, don't let a slip up define you because it doesn't! Slip ups like that happens and the quicker you pick yourself up and get back on track the better!.

    What I have used to keep motivated is a list of whys. I come up with as many reasons as I possibly can think of and I put it on the list, and I do mean everything. Then I make sure I hang that list where I can easily see it several times a day. If you can, hang it on the fridge door.

    When the whys are many the hows become a lot easier!

    Second if you are tracking food daily, on a day you slip up on, keep tracking! That way you can easily see that you had a bad day and you can make the necessary corrections.

    Of course, if you have an exercise or diet buddy, that is a great way too, because then you can motivate each other.

    Tomorrow is Sunday. Make it a great week! emoticon
