Hi, I am a 72 year old grandmother of 7, live in Valdosta , Ga. looking to get, as well as give support & motivation & meet new friends that have the same

I am restarting my journey:
January 14, 2020
Weight: 188
Goal: 135




"Interested vs. Committed":

If you''re "interested" in losing weight...

... You stick with it only until something better comes along (such as doughnuts)
... How you feel determines your outcome. If you don''t ''feel like it'', you stop your efforts.
... You need to see results. When the scale doesn''t move, you lose your motivation.
... You blame everything else (people, travel, circumstances) for your struggles with staying on program.
... Whenever you face challenges in life, you give up and plan you''ll start your program again tomorrow.

~~HOWEVER:

If you''re "committed" to losing weight...


... Nothing stops your efforts. You stick with your program, "no matter what."
... Emotions don''t control your actions. You stay on track even when you don''t feel like it.
... Your motivation isn''t linked to the scale. You assume that if you stay motivated and work hard, you''ll eventually see results.
... You don''t depend on other people for your success. You know it''s up to you, not them.
... A bad day or a lot of challenges don''t affect your efforts. You keep going in spite of it.


~~So which one are you???? "COMMITTED OR INTERESTED"????

    I blogged today about the tortoise and the hare. There's a lesson to be learned there.

    You are strong enough to make it through another day, to make it through another
    night. To change the way you think, to feel something different. To wake up tomorrow
    and love the world all over again. To love yourself better than you did yesterday.
