Change your why

Thursday, February 06, 2020

I have been reflecting lately about how things come to be and the question I am always left with is why?
Why is it so hard for some to overcome weight issues and so easy for others? Why does one thing make me fat and not the other person? Why do I have to be so careful with my choices and others don't? Why do Oreo cookies have to taste so good?
Then I take pause and I realize why is just an excuse to not focus on me and what I need to do. It is an excuse to feel sorry for myself. It is an excuse to not want to put in the effort. The truth is this is my journey and I should accept it and do it to the best of my ability.
Maybe I should be asking...why am I sitting on the couch instead of exercising? Why am I not choosing the right foods? Why do I keep buying Oreo cookies if I have no control?
I guess I just need to make sure I change my why.

    Your blog applies to a lot of us. I think there are times when we are our worst enemies. We sabotage our efforts by buying the wrong foods, and not making changes we should make. We have to keep our goals visible where we can review it throughout the day. Good luck on your journey

    This is amazingly insightful. If you can develop the answers, the whys that work for you, you will be far ahead of most of us. I battle a similar refrain: 'it's not fair'. Rebut: 'Life's not fair'. Implication: 'grow up'. So very NOT helpful. It is essentially the same issue. We have to determine what we will do with the hand we are dealt, how to play our cards to our advantage, and remember we are the only ones keeping score.

    I’m still stuck on the why.
    Why am I so tired?
    I kn9 the answer to the why but need to learn to live with it because I can’t change it

    Just get rid of the victim mentality. It helped me tremendously. Inertia is very strong but once the decision is made, nothing can stop me. Or stop you. emoticon
