From Fear to Fearless
Saturday, February 11, 2017
I find myself embarking on another weight loss journey. I've logged a lot of miles on this path, up and down the scales - it's insane. But everytime I journey downward, or upward for that matter, I do so with more wisdom. My fear though, is that I will return one day. I've had several good weight losses in the past 30 years. I've lost over 30 lbs several times, only to regain it, and another 20 each time. So here I sit at 315 - yikes!
Obviously, I don't blame weight loss, for my weight gain. I know that the gain is all me: my failure to stay true, my loss of faith, my complacency. I am gun shy of failure though. I look at my closet and I have several pairs of pants I WANT to wear. A few favourite sweaters I actually long for. Once I say good bye to my bigger clothes, I don't want them back.
Million dollar question: how do I make permanent changes?
