5 Things That Have Been Holding Me Back From Success........

Monday, September 10, 2012

BL WEEK 1 CHALLENGE

Here is my list in order of importance:

1) I haven't had enough "Determination" to stay on track day after day.

2) I am an "Emotional Eater". I give in too easily when faced with an emotional craving.

3) I have to say "Sabotage" from well-meaning family members giving me "goodies" to share. I have a very hard time saying "no" because I don't want to reject their kindness.

4) The "Reward" syndrome........sometimes I just feel like I deserve a reward for an otherwise less than perfect day. So I always reach for the "forbidden sweets". And usually feel awful afterwards.

5) "Boredom" comes in lastly, as I really don't do this very often.


Sitting here and writing them down is making me more aware of my actions.
What I can do to change these "lifelong" habits, is to constantly, every day, keep reminding myself that I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS TO MYSELF A MINUTE LONGER!
LIFE IS TOOOOO SHORT TO WASTE ANOTHER DAY KILLING MYSELF W
ITH FOOD!
I'M BETTER THAN THAT, AND I DESERVE TO LIVE A HEALTHY AND HAPPY FULFILLING LIFE IN OTHER WAYS THAN FOOD! GETTING MY "MOMENTARY PLEASURE" FROM FOOD IS STUPID, AND I AM NOT GOING TO ACT LIKE I AM ANYMORE!

MY PROMISE TO MYSELF IS TO USE DETERMINATION......WILLPOWER..
...STRENGTH OF MIND.....AND NEVER FOR A SECOND FORGET WHAT I AM GOING TO BECOME, WHEN I WALK AWAY FROM THESE ANCHORS THAT HAVE BEEN HOLDING ME BACK!

    this challenge has really been incredibly valuable to each of us, hasn't it. It's not as hard to 'think' about different aspects of this lifestyle challenge but to have to really identify and then WRITE them Down - has been amazing!! especially as we read each other's issues and know that we are definitely in this together. It is really helping me to get over this hump and 'back in the game" ;0 We will do this together!!

    I have noticed from everyone's blogs that we share a LOT of the same obstacles. My top 5 may differ from yours, but in reading yours my soul says "oh yeah, so true, me too".

    Friends and family may mean well, but if they have never been overweight then they really don't understand. It's good that we found each other to support each other....and those who have tread this same path before us to show us the way. Like guardian angels, we will guide each other along.
