Many people have told me over the years not to wish my life away, but I still do it.
I want my weight to come off NOW. I want to get our mortgage paid off NOW. I want to quit my job and start the next phase of my life NOW.
Well, despite my impatience none of those things is happening NOW. I've got a plan in place for all three, but it is not within my power to make them happen NOW. I have to work the plans. Day be day, decision by decison, dollar by dollar. There are no shortcuts. All I can do is plod along.
I've always been very focused on career and financial goals, but not so much on my weight or health goals. In the last couple of weeks though, something has "clicked" and I've started to get back that focus.
If I am going lose this last 15 pounds, I've got to bear down, do the right things and make the right decisions. Not just this minute but EVERY minute of this day. Not just today but EVERY DAY until I reach my goal. I am the only one who can make it happen. My success is 100% within my ability and control.
So my weight goal is the one where I need to focus my efforts. It's the only one I can hurry up and achieve. It's the one I need to focus my attention on.
And so I am. And so I will.
