12/03: Reason #4
Saturday, December 03, 2011
Naming my motivations is really helping. I logged a loss last Saturday and this Saturday. I had stalled for three weigh ins previously. I knew that it was mindset. My lack of motivation was giving me a nonchalant attitude. I was sliding into old habits that eventually would have taken me right back to where I was.
Reason four is because I like feeling confident. It isn't just about my body, that's good and fine, but I mean my attitude. I like feeling as though there is nothing I can't do if I really want to do it. I never had that before. It makes me wonder how much fear weighs.
Since I started to lose weight, I have gone back to school, moved out of my sisters basement, quit smoking. I started going out with a better kind of guy, expecting them to treat me well and be respectful. I changed jobs, going from a crappy job that I hated to one that is satisfying and more rewarding. I flew on a plane for the first time, rode a roller coaster, and got rid of my seat belt lengthener.
And there are so many more things that I want to do.
