searching for the right words

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

So i read my journal from a month ago and i realize something. I am good for starting off strong and being encouraged, encouraging others and the whole nine yards. somewhere along the way i find myself sitting by the side of the road wondering, trying to convince myself not to turn around or not to just sit there. i have had alot of struggles in my life, but this weightloss journey has by far been the chief of all struggles. i'm starting to get that it is so much of a burden because it affects every single part of my life and i cant conquer it if i'm not consistent. there it is, the key to my pain, disappointments and frustration...CONSISTENCY. Every time i read someone's story of success, i say, "if they can do it, i can do it" Then there comes the moment to ignore my feelings or emotions and make better food choices, or workout no matter how i feel and sometimes i win and sometimes i lose. I know that the journey to success is made up of wins and losses, but i feel like its time forme to start to win more than lose. There is so much more i want to say but i'll have to do it later

    Yes, consistency is the name of the game, and the biggest struggle! I've found myself this week fighting to stay focused and on track- between being the second week of 2011 and my birthday week, temptations abound!

    Hang in there, and don't give up! I've been clinging to 1 Corinthians 9:24, "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize."

    We're running together for the prize!

    I've been thinking about this as well... you know, the fact that I start off commenting on everyone's blogs and all that but fizzle out. I guess it is part of the learning process of being healthy. We can't fizzle out but keep pushing through!
