BLC26 - Mental Toughness

Saturday, October 04, 2014

I have NO mental toughness. I give in to cravings way to easily, I quit too easily, I let myself fail too easily. I often have an all or nothing mentality and when I slip I just let myself keep falling. One bad choice leads to another, then to another, then to another. I have been on SP for such a long time and although I made progress I slipped and I'm back higher than my original weight. Looking back on my previous blogs I always say "this is going to be the time I change" but it never seems to be. I struggle and then end up back in old habits. I really do hope that one day I am strong enough to resist temptation, to work hard to get where I need to be. Right now I'm just working on being strong enough to not give up when I slip a little and to get back up and keep going.

    Perhaps you need to change your way of thinking about things before you think you need more mental toughness. This journey is more like an adventure than a straight-line trip. There is no "this time".......there is simply just now.....there are detours, there are dead ends...........but there are also highs with beautiful scenery and rewards at the end. You need to take some time to figure out the "whys" of how you look at this journey. Why do you look at days when you may over indulge as failing? One day in the grand scheme of things does not have to lead to another of overindulging..............give yourself permission to be human. Once you figure out that the lady in the mirror is worth your effort and that she IS human, you'll be able to develop a plan that is right for you and works for you. Let your BLC teammates support you.............and most of all, be kind to that lady in the mirror. I bet she's quite a lady!!! emoticon
