I need to settle down!

Thursday, June 16, 2011

I'm not sure where this is coming from, but I feel super anxious. Sometimes when I watch videos and read blogs of other people's success, I feel inspired. Then, there are times when I see others weight loss and I covet their success. Quite frankly I get anxious and want to speed the process up by ripping the fat off my body. I know, it's extreme. That's exactly why I need to settle down. :)

I'm seeing success in my journey, but I'm starting to recognize that every time I start a new journey I go pretty steady for a while and then it hits me...."I have a long way to go and I'm ready to be there, NOW". Well, this just happened as I just got finished going through the motivator pages and had to bind covetousness, envy and anxiety all up. I was like "what I'm feeling is not of God...where's my oil."

I think it's because I've kinda been at a plateau for a while and am anxiously awaiting onederland. Friends, I'm so close that honestly any loss would ease my little mind. However, I keep trying put things into perspective. I know I worked hard to put the weight on (even though it didn't seem like hard work) and I know I will have to work harder to take it off. It takes time. Okay, I feel better. Maybe I just had to confess. :)

I feel good for the moment, but when these feelings come back I'm going to need some strategies and my oil. So, friends...do you have any suggestions on how to get over the hump of anxiety and rushing this process?

    Hey, don't sweat it. Just change up your routine. Take a few days off, then change up your routine. Give your body some thing different, and as it trys to adjust, you will be losing again in no time.

    Have your read the book "Made to Crave"? It has really helped me. I checked it out from the library!

    Praying that you will break through that plateau any day now. It is so frustrating when the scales won't show how hard we are working. Please remember to look for other successes. It seems clique but it really isn't. How are you feeling? How are you close fitting? Some times the scale just needs time to catch up. emoticon

    Plateaus are part of the ebb and flow of getting healthy.
    Here's to you taking comfort and pride in your achievements (not going backwards) and celebrating when you go forward!

    I'm wondering what you're going to do with the oil. LOL

    Anyway, I think all of what you're feeling is natural. I feel that way sometimes. Maybe just try to focus on something else for a short time.
