Day 3 – What if I fail?
I am already failing!
"Even if you have times when you struggle or gain some weight back, don’t allow the word failure into your day. You have power over what happens in your life.
So today, start conquering your fears by changing the way you think about them.
1. Write down one of your biggest fears around managing your weight.
I’ll never get it done — lose some, gain some
I’ll just let it go and stop caring.
I’ll always want fun, nurturing and comfort more than losing weight.
2. Identify your emotional response. Let yourself feel the fear and panic.
It’s awful! I can’t get past the barriers! I’ll never reach my goal!
3. Create a logical, positive message to use any time fears creep into your thoughts.
Of course I can do it. I need to stay consistent with my plans:
Track my food, water and exercise
Keep learning new things
Remind myself that I am totally capable of reaching my goal."
I have basically gained 30 pounds in 6 months and my house is a huge disaster zone.
The new job has solved some problems but has created other ones. Can't seem to get any ying without a lot of yang in return.
I have auditory sensory issues. Hearing is something that I have to concentrate to do and because I grew up with hearing loss due to Eustachian Tubes that had crystallized and were blocked until a doctor ordered a MRI when I was 24 to see the cause of hearing loss and opened the tubes back up.
It was a bit overwhelming. I went from muffled sound to hearing overnight. My speech has improved but I will always have a "strange" accent. What I am getting at is that being a Receptionist/Secretary and in particular answering phones is stressful!! When asked about my "accent" I just tell people it is Midwestern Pennsylvania Dutch, which is partially true.
I am scared of gaining back weight, I am scared that someone will come into my house when it is such a mess. I am scared that my sensory issues will be discovered at work.
I guess what I am doing is just acknowledging these things so that I can start to accept the things I can't change and work on the things I can. My speech and hearing are things I really don't have control over but my weight and my messy house is something I can work on improving.
