Starting to understand why I feel tentative even though it's clearly working
Tuesday, July 20, 2010
I blogged earlier about the fear of getting to my goal weight and not knowing what to do then. Today I weighed myself and am doing great, so I was wondering why the heck I still felt not so great? I realize now that I've really put my eggs in this basket. SP jibes exactly with my beliefs around food, health, fitness, community, LIFE . . . and it's working! In fact, it's working in so many areas of my life, not just the physical. So it feels like if this doesn't work, nothing will. And I'm afraid. What if it "stops working"? What if I quit and can't get restarted? Yes, yes, I know I have to focus on the here and now, but it does help to realize that that's what's going on. I have to just keep chanting "this is a lifestyle, not a diet." And I have to stay in contact with my SP community!
