It’s Monday again.
Seems like this week flew by. It’s because it was a horrible emotional week for me. I don’t want to get into it but I’ll just say that I am GLAD it is over!
I’ve had this picture saved on my Pinterest board for awhile now and it’s just hitting home to me.
I am so guilty of this in relation to my weight loss. I am constantly saying how much further I have to go rather than being happy with what I have already done. The problem in my case is that once I get into the “I have SO far to go” I start to sabotage myself. I stop eating healthy, I stop exercising, I stop believing in myself.
It’s just hitting me now. I don’t believe I can do it. I mean, I’ve never done it before (and kept it off). How can I do it now? Why should I believe that this time is different?
I’ve had an Oprah Aha Moment!!!!
How do I change? How do I stop thinking I will fail and start to look forward to succeeding?
When did I become ok with being overweight? When exactly did I lose faith in myself?
I am baffled. Seriously. I can say I am ready and that I am going to do it…but I truly, honestly, in my heart don’t believe that.
Wow – lots of thinking I need to do.
I hate to leave it like that but you’ve just witness a realization and I don’t know what else to say.
I will say this. It’s now been 3 weeks without any soda!!! I don’t even crave it now. Also – my goal to drink a glass of water first thing in the morning? Completed! WOO!! So that is something.
My goal next week? Drink 120 oz of water a day. That is 5 of my bottles.
I’ve got some things to work out so….
Until next time….
