I think I may be on to something.

Several of my recent blogs have been about my slow progress, lack of motivation, attempts to get back on track, yada, yada...
The other day, I got serious about trying to find an answer, knowing that it is within myself, somewhere. So I determined to focus on this, and I encourage my mind to focus by getting quiet and writing. Focusing always attracts something I need to help me, always.
Enter KATMOMMA3 and the 10,000 Steps Team challenge = more introspection. And a response from her containing the very words that may lead to my breakthrough; "Feeling complete when you're not really done yet."
This triggered a memory of a teacher telling my mother (imagine how many years ago this was) that once I learn something, I don't put any more effort into it. Apparently, in my mind, once I'm satisfied that I know HOW, I'm done.
All those years I thought I'd never be able to lose weight, to control my eating, to stop being a vegetable in front of the TV, then I learned HOW.
Ok, so now I need reprogramming.
