my biggest fear is........

Saturday, October 08, 2011

not being able to hang in there just a little longer to see results on this journey. I fear that I cannot do this for longer than three months. My failures from the many times that I have embarked on a weight loss program is due to the fact that I quickly lose motivation by about the third month. I do not know of the strategies that I can use to get over that hill and actually make it this time around. I let life take over and my efforts to eat healthy and exercise go down the drain. I would like to believe in my mind that this should not even be a journey but rather something I ought to be doing for the rest of my life,coz journeys eventually have to have a destination.I pledge that I will be here everyday for the next 30 days as a start so that I can track both my exercise and my food intake.I want to stick to weighing myself every second week so as not to get disppointed when I dont lose in a particular week. I hope I can have the courage to do this and achieve this once and for all.I need help.

    Hi. I've been in that same fearful boat too many times myself. But you know, this time really feels different. One of the hardest no-brainer things I've had to learn is to focus on just today. If I look too far down the road, I lose my focus, either worrying about whether I can hang in there that long, or anticipating what things might be like, as in "By such and such a date, I'll weigh only___", and not savoring the moment just as it is and just as I am. One day is possible. One hour, one morning, one afternoon is possible.

    Also, know your weak spots and outsmart yourself. I do not like to exercise. I'd rather curl up with a good book any time. But I've made a habit of walking around the house when I'm on the phone, especially when I'm listening to a talkative elderly relative. Sometimes I get in 20, even 30 min of walking just being on the phone - free exercise!

    We're all in this together, and SP is a wonderful resource. Live in this moment and make it a good one!
