Everyday a struggle

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Well I have figured out that everyday is going to be a struggle to stay on track. I was just sitting here wondering will it ever get easier, will I ever not crave something I don't need. Saying no to temptation is so hard. I can not allow junk in the house because my will power sucks. I have been reading some wonderful success stories and I so want to read mine one day. The before and after pictures were wonderful I had blogged before about taking pictures of my journey and I have started doing that but I am not ready to post them until I start seeing progress. It is amazing how these success stories looked when they started and how they look now. The accomplishments they have made in their lives and the better health they are now enjoying because of it. I saw several stories that sound like me and I know that all things are possible. I want to join the 100 pounds lost club but I have realized everyday is a struggle and I will have to work harder than I have in my entire life to reach my goals that I am setting for myself. Being happy with myself is my over all goal I seek. I am so tired of feeling self consience in my cloths wondering how I look if certain things make me look bigger. Im tired of wondering if the person I am interested in isn't interested in me because I am so over weight. I am just tired. I want to be able to shop for the cute cloths. Keep up with my children at the park not give out of breath going up a large hill. These are things I want why is it so hard? I will probably post several blogs like this to help me stay motivated. I think I am going to start a scrap book of the success stories I have been reading to give me something to look at to keep me reminded of what I need to do to lose the weight. Everyday will be a constant struggle and I just have to keep reminding myself that I can do it I will succeed.

    Keep your focus and be diligent. Motivation will leave you soon enough. Your burning desire must remain. This desire is not a want, it must be a need. It must come from the depths of your being. Your start and frustration is simply what everybody goes through until their wants become their desires. Hey that means you are really ready to do this thing!

    Speaking for myself and probably a vast majority of others, I felt exactly the same as you in the beginning, and I promise you that you will feel so much better if you stick with it and get healthy. Not only will you have more self confidence and be happier, it will get easier to make the right choices. Instead of thinking of every day as a struggle, think of everyday as an opportunity to be strong and make the right choices for a healthy you. It's not always easy to make that choice, and sometimes you'll make the wrong choice. No matter, carry on. You owe it to yourself and your children. If others can do it, so can you. You are just as special and wonderful as everyone else. So, hang in there - you can do it! emoticon

    Have you done your vision collage yet? They say that is really helpful and you wouldn't have to post the pictures of your before.

    Dear nobody ever promised us that it would be easy. There are so many like you, take me for example. So since you have the power to make pictures of yourself, I don't, publish them and you will see and read that what you don't see others do. It is always like that. We have a very funny image of ourselfs.
    Looking forward to your photoblog!
