Day 2: Baby steps on the path

I am SO impatient…

When I decide that I want something or need something, I gotta have it NOW. I don’t want to wait. And, unfortunately, I don’t want to work too hard for it either.

I was watching a movie the other day and somebody said “You want success without sacrifice, you want progress without pain, and that’s just not possible.” Yup, that sums me up.

I acknowledge it, I am exposing it, so that I can change it…

Being impatient also causes me to try and change everything all at once. Join a gym! Find the right diet! Buy a new workout video!! Empty the fridge!!!! You get the picture. That is exhausting and overwhelming and never lasts long either. I need to force myself to slow down and take some baby steps.

Baby steps… they never come without some tumbles and bruises. But there’s something inside that baby that drives them to get back up and keep on trying. I need some of THAT in me.

Baby step 2: I have mentally decided that this is a lifelong journey. Unfortunately, it is not going to end in 90 days, or even 365 days. I will always have the same weaknesses, the same tendencies, and will have to stay vigilant until I breathe my last breath. Sounds a bit like AA… well, it seems like they are the experts and they got something right.

Let me just warn you, I do not intend to be a weight loss expert. I will probably never share exercise tips or recipes… that is not my goal. I just want to share my real thoughts on this path and find some people to walk along with me. It’s easier to keep going when you know you are not walking alone…

We are never alone
