Interested or Committed?

Day 2 of 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle.

I have been interested in losing weight for many years. I have been committed to losing weight for a few weeks at a time. But when I really think about it, that isn't commitment either. There is a big difference between being committed and being interested in losing weight.

When I'm interested:

It doesn't last long.

I depend on seeing results or I don't keep going.

I easily explain why I'm not reaching my goals - no time, it's my husband's fault, life is too stressful right now, etc.

When I'm committed:

I stick with it.

I work on keeping my motivation strong.

I have a "no matter what" attitude.

When I'm committed, I make time. When I'm interested, I make excuses.

I am committed!
