Honest Ponderings

Good morning, Folks.

I’m going to get it out in the open. I’m not motivated at all right now to lose the weight and some of the feelings of “I’ll never be at goal weight.” were creeping into my mind yesterday.
The weird thing is that I am in the process of making some rather big changes to my eating that includes changes for my family. My husband and I have been talking more lately on eating better and he is open to me trying some new healthier meals for our family and cutting out some junk.
This is a first for us and I know it’s going to help. So, I do have moments that I’m so happy and excited about what’s to come, but lately I am not in the mood so to speak.
One thing I do know is that there are some major changes cemented in my life. I have eaten out a lot this week with my family and I have maintained. I no longer pig out at restaurants and that is a BIG step for me. It’s only recently that I am seeing this becoming the norm for me. I don’t even desire to overeat at a restaurant anymore. This thrills me, but I know I can’t stop here.
So, I’m still going. Today I am finishing up a project that I’ll share with you later. I know these changes are coming from deep inside and I will see the weight come off….eventually. Right now I’m just not feeling it, so I’m having to make myself do things even if I don’t feel like it.
Thanks for listening.

    Making yourself do it tells me that it is in there…when we are able to go past the 'feelings' and do what we know is right that is REAL progress. Good for you and I will lift you up in prayer as you go through this time of change.

    You are getting there….even when you feel like you are not, looking at the small steps, like the eating out, shows you how far you have come. Right now its all I have to hold onto and I am holding on for dear life. This will pass and you will get there!

    It's hard to keep going when you feel like you've lost your motivation. Each day is a new day, and changing/making a good choice is one step in a direction. I know it's hard to not get impatient. Hope you have a good weekend! 🙂

    Sometimes you just have to muddle through. While reading the book “Savor” it talks about acknowledging having these feelings and embrace them so you can deal with them and move on. Just acknowledge that you are not motivated now and that it is a struggle at times. Acknowledging it does *not* mean goal isn't attainable. It doesn't mean you have to stop trying or that there is anything wrong with you. It's just a normal process. 🙂
