One More Day
Saturday, November 17, 2007
Okay it is November 17, 2007. This isn't my first time trying to lose weight and from visiting other sp member pages, I am not alone. This is also not my first time wanting to give up either, but I think I am going to give it one more day. For some odd reason or two or three, my life is a little too hectic to actually dedicate myself to perseverance- Steady persistence in adhering to a course of action, a belief, or a purpose; steadfastness. I cannot give %110 or even %50 half of the time and it is so frustrating. I have a goal, a plan, I'm on a mission. So what seems to be the hold up, what is the problem, why can't I do this? These are all the things that I ask myself all during the day when I feel as if I am falling off the edge with nothing and no one around to grab a hold of me.
There is a lack of communication between me and my other half that constantly keeps my mind twirling to figure out things on my own. Deep down inside I want to feel as if everything will be okay. My solution for that is to sleep on it and when I wake up the situation will be different! Funny huh, totally wrong. Nothing goes away by sleeping on it except for maybe a headache. I have learned from so many others here on this site that persistence is the key. So each day; I may not follow my calorie intake exactly or I may not get that much needed cardio or strength training in, but I have trained my body to do small steps that I have learned from reading or other people. That is a start, right? But why does it seem like everday is a start and not a contiuance of the next day and the next until I reach my goal?
Well I'm going to give it another try. I really want to do this for so many reasons and of course for myself as well. It use to be for everyone else, but I can't do that anymore. I have to put myself first and come up with successful ways of getting it done. Where there is a will, there is a way and I will definitely find one somehow.
