I was definitely thinking in terms of weight loss and this particular journey. If I look at how far I have to go and keep telling myself that I am nowhere near the finish line I am going to get discouraged...BUT if I tell myself that I already AM a success, each and every day that I try to make these healthy habits stick, then before long, I won't be "faking", they ARE going to be in place and I am going to be where I want to be.
On the days when I don't feel like trying, when I get up, get my breakfast, get on spark, plan my day, before long I'm no longer "faking" the mood, it takes hold. It's just like choosing to be happy -- you might be in an awful mood but if you determine to not let it get the best of you, and you choose to laugh and find the joy and blessings that surround you, then soon you are no longer faking the good mood, you will have one.
As for living your life, you should never pretend you are something you aren't, or be envious of things that you are not willing to get out there and work for.
