I love this statement. For me the starting point was taking my head out of the sand, removing the rose coloured glasses and admitting I was unhappy in so many parts of my life. From there every step I take is going forward. The first step is always the hardest, the most painful because you have to be honest with yourself. I understand that this journey will be a mix of positive and some not so positive steps, but the goal is never out of reach. Words such as Never, Cant, Won’t I have wiped from my vocabulary (said my last can’t today to Personal trainer- ouch ouch my legs lol); I see these as part of a roadblock toward my “Great”. My “Great” is someone that can smile, relax and be confident around people, She is healthy and happy and fit. She is all the things I use to be and will get back to. Who is you “Great”??
To whose that know me and whose who will get to know me; I am somewhat ‘slightly’ Stubborn lol I would like to think that I use this to my advantage but sometimes I think it fuels my excuses and ‘head in the sand’ Syndrome. My mother says that once I’ve made a decision I stick with it, even if it’s the wrong one (in her opinion). So I’ve made my choice and I’ve made my commitment as part of 12WBT pre Season.
I am committed to following this thru to the end, whatever the time frame. I will throw all I have into succeeding. I will lose the weight, I will get on the scales and see my goal weight and I will battle whatever negatives come my way with a smile and determination. I commit to taking responsibility for the choices I make and they will be the right ones this time lol. And I am committed to all the sweat, tears and pain it will take to get there.
