Target Fixation: or how to avoid crashing.

In driving there is the concept of target fixation which is the idea that what your eyes focus on is where you will drive. That is why it is important to glance at curve-in-the-road signs but then quickly look ahead down the road to where you want to go.
I think this applies to what I do in creating a healthy life style. If I focus on weight LOSS I am not focusing on health, fitness, self control, progress, strength. I am focused on loss. If I focus on all the components of gaining health, the scale will take care of itself.
So lets cast our eyes and vision on where we want to go.
