Sometimes I Lose Sight

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Sometimes I lose sight of the reasons why I am even on this journey. When I try hard and it seems like I am just going nowhere, I get into a funk. Sometimes when I am elbow deep into a bag of chips the reasons why I am trying to succeed on this journey hit me...I was so close to being diabetic the last time I went to the doctor. I don't want to have diabetes. I want to be able to move easily without all the pain and pressure of trying to get up, etc. I don't want to live in fear of whether or not I exceed the weight limit for something or if I will be able to fit somewhere because of my size. I would love to be healthy and not be on medication. I really would like to be able to conceive, which is something I have really struggled with and have a lot of guilt with. At times when I feel discouraged and wonder why in the world do I even try, I need to sit down and look at the reasons why so that I can continue to move forward.

    Journal these exact reasons and have them somewhere you see the beginning it will be a good tool to keep you focused on what you really want in life.... before you are elbow deep in a bag of chips.

    Embrace the journey, and use the system to your advantage. Track your food, exercise, weight and measurements, to learn what works for you and where are your downfalls. If chips are your downfall, get rid of them! Fill your pantry with nutritional things instead, like apples.

    You're on the right track and this 'adventure' is 90% mental so work on that first and the rest will come. (Well you have to do some physical work too but you know...)
