On Friday, I let the opportunity go by to join the Phit-n-Phat community. I have listened to her podcasts, and debated joining. Do I need this? Would it help? Do I really want this type of accountability?
I felt sad - felt like I was missing out. Thing is, I have decided that I'm done spending money. I have so many exercise dvd's, and books, etc. I have everything I need. I have a premium membership here with SP. I enjoy going through Spark Coach (not every day). I am a member of the Half Size Me Community , which I really enjoy.
So why do I feel like I need to be a part of everything that comes along? I'm not certain. Somehow I think that if I am always doing "something", that I'm making progress. That's not always the case. For many people, it's just a hobby - collecting books, reading articles, buying things to help with weight loss. We never really get around to doing the actual work. While I have made some very slow progress, I would like to say that I'm consistent. That's where I think the progress will be made. Being consistent on a daily basis. The newness of programs will wear off. After all, there is always someone out there who needs to make a living. They are going to write a book, develop a program, do something to help me lose weight, and they are going to be selling it to me.
It's time to believe that I've always had the power - it lies within me, not within some book or program. It's time to stop entertaining myself by buying more. Clear the mind clutter. Just stop it!
