Making a decision is only PART of the answer
Friday, July 13, 2007
I was watching Opra today and the show was about people who over came very serious tragedies in their life’s. This one woman spoke of how she over came 20 yrs of drug and alcohol abuse to her self.
She made a decision but she said that was not enough - then she had to create a plan on how to make her decision happen as well as a plan for how to handle herself when she was tempted to fall back into the old habits.
The whole time I was watching I kept thinking - BINGO ! That is where I have gone wrong every time with weight loss. I make my decision to lose weight and even at times make a plan but never have created a back up "emergency" plan.
So today after the show was over - I went grocery shopping and got a load of fresh fruits and vegs and other healthy foods, AND I am now prepared for an "emergency". I have healthy foods to grab for on the go - which happens around here quite often and usually fast food becomes the answer and I even have foods ready for "those" times that I must have choc or something sweet - like I got low fat low calorie fudge bars.
Now my next step is exercise - I need a plan AND a back up plan.
