White Knuckling

Sunday, March 03, 2019

For the the past couple weeks I have been white knuckling. Like an action star dangling from a rope on a cliff. If I just hang on without falling off the end of the rope I will get through this. I keep slipping and slipping. Inside me I still have some drive, some will to live, the strength to climb up the cliffs of insanity and defeat Inigo Montoya.

    My highest weight was 321 and after losing 100, I went back up to 315. It isn't easy but it is doable. Slow and steady is best. Maybe you are trying to change too much too fast. I am doing more things right as time goes on and yet know that I will never do everything right. If you feel like you are "dangling from a rope on a cliff", maybe you need to get back on solid ground. Baby steps in the right direction is better than going backward. This is my third time and I was 'only' at 295 when I started this time but it will be the last time and although I know it might be 2 or 3 or, heaven help me, more years to get to goal I am sure I will make it this time and never go back. You can do this but you probably need to cut yourself some slack. Lots of people are rooting for you. You don't need to do it by yourself.

    Sometimes maintaining where you are is the best course of action. Hang in there, and look for a way to Spark your fire again, where you feel like you can start making progress again in your goals.

    What would it take to expand that drive? That’s the question I’ve had to ask myself. Also, be proud of the strength it takes to hang on - that strength is going to get you back up the cliff

    You are still here and that is a good thing! Keep hanging on because it will get easier and the rewards will be so worthwhile! You can do this!

    Do you want tough love? If so, throw cold water in your face, slap your cheeks- you are worth it and only you can say getting your health back is the biggest gift you can give yourself. Stay on track and love yourself enough to do this!!! You CAN!
