Can I Afford to Wait for My Lightbulb to Click??
Thursday, July 07, 2011
Today's Daily Spark contained a great blog about a member who has lost over 100 lbs and has become a triathlete during his Spark Journey. He says in his blog that he first had to decide that he wanted to do it, and only then could he consider how to do it, and that as his journey has evolved, so has the how to do it, he called it "doing what it takes" to succeed. So one day, his lightbulb clicked, and his steps forward began.
This was an awesome blog, and one that has dovetailed preceisely with my frame of mind these days. For all my talk (although lately I've been pretty outwardly quiet, but there is plenty of chatter in my head) of how much I want to lose this weight once and for all, clearly the eating I do, the exercise I don't do, says I'm not ready. I so do not want to be one of those people who put it off and put it off and put it off until some real health scare puts me in the hospital or worse, to then look back with regret upon the time I've wasted. But at this particular point in my life, I am afraid that is exactly the road I am headed on.
So I guess I just wanted to say all this out loud, to say that I am waiting for my lightbulb to go off, waiting to be ready. And I will continue to think about all the reasons I need to complete this journey to begin with..mostly, to be able to see my son grow up, to be here for him. Should be reason enough. Was that a click I just heard??
