What happens when I get there?
Friday, July 16, 2010
Now that I'm feeling my body start to change, now that something is undeniably starting to happen, those scary feelings are starting to come up. It's almost like every pound (and layer of lethargy brought on by lack of exercise, excess of wine, lack of motivation, whatever) is hiding something I don't want to face. And what's coming up lately is, What happens when I get there? When I hit my goal weight, will I have the fortitude to maintain? Will I REALLY look at this as a lifestyle and not just a project?
I think the key is going to be goals, goals, and more goals. I will never run a marathon (just not my thing) but there's always something to aspire to. I've been so much more motivated in all aspects of my life (those little things that have been sitting around for years - I'm getting them done!) that I think I'll have to look to those for inspiration.
