Starting Again, Again.

Saturday, April 14, 2012

Ugh! So, here I am, jumping back on the wagon. There have been some wonderful developments in my life since the last time I wrote. I'm moving from PA to California this summer to attend Stanford U. for my PhD. I'm very excited, and scared, and nervous. These are big changes, big goals I've met and I'm moving on to the next step of studying and researching. But this weight loss thing is tripping me up. I know I'm not perfect. There are many things besides this that I need to work on. But this one is the most frustrating for me. I'm going to do this. There have been times in my life that I've struggled to reach goals and I've met them. I'm not sure why this one is so much harder. But I have to do this. I don't recognize the person I see in the mirror. She doesn't match the person I feel like on the inside. It's time to bring that person on the inside out.

    Congrats on the acceptance to the PhD program! You may find that the change of scenery and routine may be just the thing to help jump-start on your goals. However, a lot of what I've learned on SP is about starting new habits, starting small, and eventually trying be consistent despite changes in scenery (which is very challenging).

    Good luck!

    As long as you keep starting. Eventually you won't have to start again because you didn't quit again. I hear the weather is wonderful in CA, so enjoy the outside while you can during the time you're working on your next stage in life!

    It's hilarious that I just read my Jan 8 blog and it said almost the same thing. I have to break this cycle.
