Focusing on a Smaller Goal
I sat back and really focused on why I try and fail so much... .and what I can do to help myself succeed this time. I think the problem is this:
1. I want immediate results... you know, wake up on day two with 10 lbs gone.
2. I suffer from the, "if they don't see me eat it, it doesn't count" syndrome.
3. I become discouraged and sabotage myself....making me gain the weight back and becoming depressed to the point where I have a hard time getting back up.
4. I work out hard at first, but burn myself out before I get into "the groove"
Ok... so what do I do about it? Well... I have to do a mental make over. As I see it, 99% of the problem is in my head. I need to dig deep.. and get myself going.
I am focusing on losing 20 lbs right now. 75 lbs looks so impossible.. so lets make the target a little closer. I want to be under 200 lbs again.
I am focusing on doing some kind of exercise everyday... whether its a walk around the block or a full blown 5 miles on the treadmill... move my BUTT!!
I am focusing on eating healthy.... I am going to continue with the Satiatrim, as it has helped me understand good portion control... but what I also need to work on is the kind of food I am eating. I will be using the Sugar Solutions book for recipes.
I am focusing on one day at a time.... if I try to plan out the whole week, then I will fail.... I will wake up strong and determined to make that day a success.
I am removing the 10 wk challenge and putting up a 6 wk challenge.... I am changing my goal ticker to 20 lbs... I am going to write every morning...
I feel much better!
Today is going to be a success!!
