Time to be my own cheerleader

Saturday, December 26, 2015

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 weeks to months. My latest project has stuck with the program I suggested for her 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. So....instead of continuing on my downward spiral it is time to begin again. This time without someone else being the project. It is time for me to be my own project. Give myself as much encouragement and investment as I give others. It is time for me to be my own cheerleader! emoticon

    I understand what you are saying. Sometimes we know exactly what a person needs to do to be successful, but we can't do it for ourselves until the time is right. Your time is NOW!!!! Go for it. You know you can do it!
