Non-Attachment To The Outcome


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

My Yoga teacher made a brief statement regarding 'non-attachment'. Be in the moment, do the work, without getting caught up in the outcome. I immediately related this to weight loss. When I got home, I revised my Sparkpage and deleted all dates-to-be. I still have a final weight loss goal, and markers along the way, but am no longer concerned about an exact "outcome." I am even more focused on being present in the moment and doing the work. Keep on no matter what, and the body will reflect it.

    I love this..! I do not even care anymore when I hit a platau.. because I know I am taking better care of me, the weight loss is icing on the cake, I am eating healthy and moving. That is my goal.

    This was definitely the Secret of Success I needed to read today. I'm weighing in tomorrow and have had to keep telling myself that I'm a work in progress; that the number may not move as much as I would like it to right now. Thanks! I'm going to try to be more in the moment from now on than worry about the outcomes. :) emoticon
