WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS: 90% MENTAL, 10% PHYSICAL
As the saying goes "where the mind goes, the body follows". Vincent Lombardi says : "The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It's your mind you have to convince." How true. Most of our wrestle is in our mind. When we conquer that, weight loss for some reason just seem easy.
It is a challenge, but when you choose (and you do have the choice) to stay positive amidst challenges you will succeed. Success comes when failure is not an option.
When you focus on what you don't want, that's exactly what you get because that's what you're focused on. Learn to let your nay be nay and your yes be yes. Because we are divinely endowed by God to make choices let us endeavor to make the choice to do everything in our strength to choose in the direction that will lead us forward. This might mean giving up something we really love for a season which in my case is ice cream and chocolate (I seem to pick up weight just thinking about eating it...LOL)
I've also decided to stop beating myself up when I fail and start focusing on what I do right and what I really want. I believe when we start doing this we'll receive strength to keep us going forward towards our goals.
Here are some quotes that keep me inspired
You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.
(So, keep getting up each time you fall. Remember, YOU can do it.)
We never repent of having eaten too little.
- Thomas Jefferson
