Then a so~called friend told me that losing weight and getting fit is NOT fun, and that, I too would soon learn that this was true. She said, "Oh you just wait!"
You know....she stole something from me that day. Because since that day, this journey has not been as much fun...I have not had the enthusiasm I once had. And you know what? I've not had the great success I had when I thought it was easy and fun!
Then the other day I heard this on the Dr Laura Radio show. She was talking to a caller and I wrote down everything she said....except I changed the wording as if I'm talking to myself...
Deciding something in advance usually limits me.
My decisions limit my body and my mind.
If I decide I’m not good enough or I can't do something.
Then I will prove myself right!
If I decide that this is something I want, like it's my next breath…
then I will push toward it!!!
When I first started my health and fitness plan...I had decided that is would be fun...it would be easy and I would have success. When I thought that way....I proved myself right!!
When I let someone steal my good and healthy idea about this journey away from me, then, I started thinking about what she said and then I decided it was hard and frustrating and I would never make it to my goal. And guess what!!!! Right now I'm proving myself right!! I stuck in a frustrating plateau, I'm not having fun and this is not easy. And I'm definitely not feeling very enthusiastic about my journey!
So I'm taking it back!!
I've decided that this journey is fun....it is easy and fascinating!! Do you know if you look at this like a scientist and keep trying and testing and doing and going forward...You will find the right mix for you and you will have success. I've done this in the past. I've lost over 60+ pounds (used to be more but I was listening to my defeated friends advise and I was going backwards) NOT ANY MORE!!!!
Losing weight and getting fit is something I want. I do want it like I want my next breath. And I am pushing towards my goals....EVERY DAY!!!!!
How about you....Did someone steal something from you. Something you need for your success? If so, take it back. TAKE IT BACK NOW!!
This years mantra.....NO FEAR!!!!!
Now get out there and lets get this done!!
