You nailed it- Onward and upward- Lost weight years ago yet surounded by fault finders about every little thing -Goal now "more energy and a feeling of being fit" - Looking at people my own age that I admire who are far more fit than I have let myself become as role models I exercise but have a huge problem with emotional eating - Nobody force feeding me- It is up to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

The will of God will not take you where the Grace of God cannot protect you.

Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

Give me the grace to see a joke,

To get some humor out of life,

And pass it on to other folk!

You know what you want to achieve, give up, improve, triumph over, resolve. Here is an exercise to help people identify their roadblocks—and blast through them. Ready to get started?

Choose the Right Goal
1a. Kegan and Lahey say that our goals are often disguised as chronic complaints—basically, your biggest gripes contain information about what you most want. Start by thinking about what's bothered you this past year (you're really stressed at work; you feel uncomfortable in your clothes)

1b. Now think about how you might turn that general dissatisfaction into a specific goal, as in "I want to delegate more at the office" or "I want to lose weight to have more energy and look better." Write your goals below.

Acknowledge Your Part in the Problem
2. List what you do that works against this goal. Ask yourself: What am I doing (or not doing) to undermine my progress? Below, be as honest and precise as possible—and avoid

Discover Your Competing Commitments
3a. Ask yourself: What fears come up when I think of doing the opposite of what I wrote above? For instance, someone whose goal is to lose weight and who knows her obstacle is that she blows off portion sizes might realize that what she's most worried about is turning into a calorie-counting control freak. Write your answers to this question below.

3b. Consider how your current behavior reflects your determination to keep what you fear most from happening. Kegan and Lahey say that competing commitments are often rooted in secret anxieties—in this case, "I want to be fit" versus "I don't want to become totally neurotic." Can you explain how you've used competing commitments to manage your life or emotions?

Identify Your Underlying Assumptions
4a. Start by looking at the secret fears you wrote down in question 3. These are driven by assumptions you've made (e.g., anyone who monitors portions must be controlling). To unearth your hidden beliefs, answer the following questions: What have you convinced yourself will happen if you overcome your bad habit? Is this true?

4b. Identifying the thoughts that sustain our immunity to change is important, but insight alone will not result in lasting change. Most of us operate as if our assumptions are facts. Below, write ways that you can test whether your beliefs are true, starting with smaller experiments ("I will delegate one task") and moving on to more significant examples ("I will take a week off and not check in with the office").
