Process, not perfection!

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

I'm battling feelings of futility. I end up thinking, ugh, all this work, all this effort, all this time, and I'm STILL not happy with how I look. But that is a very defeatist and dangerous way of thinking. In the past, it's caused me to give up on my progress, to regain weight, and to end up back where I started, wondering why the hell I didn't keep going when I was already halfway down the road to my goal, instead of eating my way back to square one. I am not going to do that again!

It's a process. Am I HAPPIER with how I look and feel than I was thirty pounds ago? Hell yes. Do I expect that I will be EVEN HAPPIER with how I look and feel thirty pounds from now? Hell yes. Well that alone is reason to keep going. It's about PROCESS not PERFECTION.

    That you were half there and gave up. Now you are back to square one. That's why we keep going. Great great great point.
