I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail. The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail. I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before, But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much. I said I didn’t care for things like commission checks and such. I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone, But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win. I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin. I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before, I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you’re in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out, Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt. A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true. Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
Rays Notes... Does the thought of change scare you?
Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone? Are you ready to take the next step to commit to a new lifestyle? ... I didn't say DIET... I said lifestyle!
This is the type of commitment needed to start on the journey to health and well being!
It will take courage, determination, will power, intestinal fortitude, a positive attitude and the time to complete what you've already started!
To stay inside your comfort zone says that there'll be no change... that you like what you have and you're not ready to change! I can respect that...
but if there's no change the weightloss will never come... perhaps your health will deteriorate... Who knows, you may even gain back some of the weight because of comfort eating, emotional eating or just plain eating for the enjoyment of it without any accountability!
I have taken the next step...Through knowledge and commitment I've decided to commit myself back to fitness and nutrition to regain my health and that my future is too important to just throw away. I need to regain the control of my eating habits and exercise. I also need to focus on what is important to me... My family and my friends.
If you're in a position where you are ready for the next step, take those steps forward and enlighten yourself! Learn all you can, read the nutrition labels, exercise, spend time getting to know what you need to know to succeed! From Videos to exercise tips, from menu planning to tracking and the tools and friends second to none... everything you'll need is right here on Sparkpeople!

Step out of your comfort zone... A WINNER!
