I have always struggled with commitment on many levels. My primary goal for this next year is to stop contemplating (dreaming) about all I can do and be and just do it! I know that I can. I am really great about being others cheerleaders or even mentors for weight loss. I get them started, guide them and am along for the ride for about 2 months....and then something happens. They don't need me anymore...they are off and running on their own. This is where I give up. It doesn't happen in a day...its one bad day that leads to other bad days...to weeks to months. My latest project has stuck with the program I suggested for them and is now down almost 60 pounds! I am proud of her...but feel envious and embarrassed. This is of my own doing and I have now recognized my pattern although I have done this too many times to count.

My other motivation is that I have a 12 year old daughter that I already see struggling with her self-esteem and her body image. I want to encourage a healthy lifestyle for her and I can only do that by being a part of it myself.

Time to hit the reset button! I am in control of what I do the next day, month, year, etc. It is time to encourage myself as I would anyone else.
