I am my own obstacle

Monday, October 06, 2008

Wait....no, no more waiting. I can come up with all kinds of excuses, and some might even be worthy, but that's all they are, excuses.

i KNOW when i'm making bad choices, obviously. And i'm not upset with myself as i write this, i think i'm actually being quite forgiving. but i need to step up and make a true effort, or just decide to stay as i am. one or the other...and i don't want to stay as i am.

i'm tired and sore all the time, but i know that would change with losing weight. and i need to do while i'm healthy enough to do it. i don't have any medical or physical limits holding me back, it's all mental. and as smart as i like to think that i am, i haven't been very smart about taking care of myself. i need to get healthy before i get even more unhealthy. duh!

so, i need to do the simplest of things. i need to eat better, i need to exercise more. i need to have more faith in myself. i need to believe that i can lose weight. i need to stop coming up with lame excuses.

i need to NOT be an obstacle to myself.

and why the heck is this always SO simple yet i make it difficult? you'd think i want attention or something! so, i need to give MYSELF some attention.

    You know yourself better than anyone, right!?

    I am my own worst enemy, as well. That inner demon that doesn't want me to exercise or eat right rears it's ugly head now and again for whatever reason, but, I need to banish him NOW! I gotta get out of my funk, too, so let's cheer each other on, ok?

    You are a beautiful lady! Look in the mirror and be proud of who you are! You have embarked on this journey with the rest of us and you will succeed! Don't let it all overwhelm you, look at your goals and pick just one to concentrate on. Maybe self esteem is a challenge for you, try the visualization exercises. Have you made a motivation poster and put it up on your refrigerator or the bathroom mirror? Talk to POSITIVE, ENCOURAGING friends, don't let anyone talk down to you, tell them to "Talk to the hand" if that works for you!! It's YOUR life and YOUR journey.

    And above all, keep Sparking, Keep in touch and let your SP friends be there for you!!
