A new perspective

Friday, August 15, 2014

I have started my weight loss journey over and over again and have never reached my final goal. Today was another start. Meals planned, groceries purchased, food logged, etc. Normally the white-knuckles would start right about now. I did this all today, but can I keep it up tomorrow?

But in order to be successful I must shift my thinking from the all-or-nothing. This journey isn't about doing everything well every single day and losing 80 pounds in less than a year. This is about learning to give a crap about myself more today than I did yesterday. It's about learning who I am, getting back to my own soul, and learning to manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

Yes I have started again, but rather than thinking about is as a restart, I'm thinking about it as one log continuous journey. Today I'm more focused on my journey than I have been. It's not that I've failed over and over. It's that I've learned over and over and continue to unfold.

    Sometimes the hardest change is changing your mind. Keep up the positive attitude.

    You're right about it being one continuous long journey. Even when we hit an ultimate goal weight, the journey will continue.
