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.
