I read a comment by a fellow action plan member that she was conerned about staying committed to the cause to the end. I too share this concern. I am an educated women with plenty of common sense...why do I have such difficulty staying with a program until I reap the rewards?
It seems to me the patterns of my past have been to go all out...gung ho and all....then fizzle until I just seem to quietly quit. I wonder why this is so? Am I afraid of actually succeeding? That is an interesting idea. Maybe so. I have been in fairly good health all my life...always 10 - 20 pounds over weight though. This is my comfort zone. Even though I SAY I want something more, I think subconscious I set myself up to fail because I am afraid of breaking free of my old self.
Well, this is the beginning of a new year. Time for a new me. Not completely new.....I actually like myself ok....just an improved version. The version of me I see in my minds eye makes good use of her time (being active more often than not), making healthy food choices (most of the time), has plenty of energy (mind and body) for the important people in her life and makes time for creative and spiritual activities. Does that sound too terribly lofty?
I like that the program set before us takes things a step at a time. I am invisioning this will be easier to manage.
