I find that trying to slowly improve myself is the best way.

For example, I recently started swimming again after being off for December. I started with just getting to the pool, and last week I swam 1 mile 4 times! This week I'm trying for 5 times and maybe adding some distance here and there.

Cheers and good luck!

David

losing sucks...but it's a part of life...my competitiveness part of me makes me who I am...I don't think I could ever want to lose that...if I lost that or got rid of it, I would set myself up to lose all the time

Not nearly the same, but similar, but also opposite emotions. When I was a little kid, running was something that I absolutely loved, and I still remember the feeling of the elation of running, especially as a race. Now, I can't run more than 40 yards, and it just makes me sad to think I can't experience the feeling of running like that, at least at the moment. One of the reasons for me losing weight is so I can run like that again. I remember how I felt so, pushing yourself as hard as you can to go as fast as you can. Even if I lost, it was fun and it was worth trying just to do it. I'm competitive to try and win, but I find it's more fun to try to win rather than winning or losing.

Working on becoming Goku, from the series Dragon Ball Z (cosplay).

Many years ago I walked away from competition, not just in sports but competition period. The pain losing caused, observed, no longer justified the good feelings of winning. Recent events in my life brought this thought back to mind. I am wondering as anyone else had this experience?
