It's so mental

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

The longer I stay on this journey, the more I realize that losing weight is all mental. Yes we eat right, yes we work out, but if you don't keep your mind in check, you will lose this race. Last week, my mind was not focused. I was focused on so many other things and so busy with life that I did not really work out. I ate ok but only worked out like 2x last week. I realized today that was a mental struggle. My mind was simply elsewhere. I shifted my focus to what was at hand in my life. I actually started thinking like oh well summer is here again I am still fat it's whatever. I had to QUICKLY get my mind right. It's hard and will always be a mental struggle for all of us.

I am happy to report that I am back at it. I don't ever wanna get off track for more than a week. In order to do that, I have to keep my mind focused.

I can and will do this. I was telling my friend that losing weight is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I have 2 degrees and I've been through a lot but this is the hardest because it takes daily focus and commitment and renewing of the mind.

Well That's all folks. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

    I totally agree with you. I think the key is to stay positive. I know you will achieve your goals. You are on the right track. Just continue to make smart decisions on eating and keep moving. Just this weekend, I had a few mishaps. But, as soon as the week started back up, I said to myself, time to get right back on that wagon. I think you are doing an awesome job. Congratulations on your weightloss thus far. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It is absolutely mind over matter! If I'm not 100% percent focused, I veer ever so slightly off course. You have to keep your eye on the prize!
