I have come here today to recommit to my health and fitness. I lost 52 pounds last year and then I hit a plateau, instead of pushing on, I gave in and headed back to my comfort zone. I weighed in this morming with a 20 weight gain. I am so disappointed with myself, but I haven't given up on myself. It's a new day with a fresh start. I know where I made my mistakes and I see where I need a little bit more self disipline. I will be woking on my life style changes for the rest of my life and I have to take the good with the bad. I just need to remember to keep fighting no matter what obstacles stand in my way.

Something we were withholding made us weak, until we found it was ourselves.

Who is standing in your way?

Imagine someone regularly tying small weights around your ankles as you try to climb a mountain. Doesn't sound fair, does it? But that's exactly what you can do to yourself, a little bit at a time, if you don't watch out. When you think of who and what is standing in the way of your dreams, it's easy to forget your own responsibility. Even the best of us can be guilty of unknowingly hurting our own progress. Procrastination, lateness, being disorganized, pessimism, not being honest with yourself, severe self-criticism, downplaying achievements, focusing only on weaknesses while ignoring strengths, keeping goals a secret, demanding perfection, giving up after a small setback--these are all ways you can make it tough to be (and do) your best. Smart systems the right attitude, and a promise to keep going no matter what will make a world of difference.
