Starting over... again
Friday, August 06, 2010
How many times are we allowed to start over and repeat that age old mantra of "This is it! This is the last time! This time will be the time I finally lose the weight!"
And then 6 months later, you are shouting it again, perhaps 5 lbs heavier than before.
Now I have to admit, at this exact moment, I am not that person. But lord knows I have been that person sooooooooooo many freaking times. I can't count how many times I have revamped my plans, reset deadlines, created new goal events, recalculated my caloric guidelines, etc etc etc.
So here is my question. Is it (emotionally) unhealthy to keep starting over and over again? Is that a sign of some deeper issue that we need to tackle? Or is it merely the trait of a person who isn't a (permanent) quitter?
