OMG!! Now I know why this keeps happening!!!!

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Just read SHRINKINGLULU's blog about her light bulb moment and roaches and a whole lot of crazy things. What got me is when she talked about being scared of Onederland. Reading this was like getting a disease that I've had for years diagnosed. Funny thing is I didn't even know that I'm 'sick' until I read this blog.

So this is my story. I've always tried to loose weight. I enjoy running so that is what I have always done to loose weight. Problem is I have never reached my goals. I always start and then for some reason I just stop and overeat, gain weight and start at a worse position. I have never thought about why I stop. The moment I start noticing changes I always stop and make excuses.

Reading this blog and comments made me realise that I am scared of loosing weight. I have realised this before, when I learnt about the nutrition tracker. I knew that it was going to increase my chances of loosing weight but instead of getting excited I was scared. I just never associated this with my past behaviour of stopping the moment. It even affects the effort I put in.

This is deep!!!

    I am the same way, I seem to do well and then sabotage myself as if I don't want to see the results happen.

    I think a lot of us have this fear, but now that you know it you can move forward! We can do it!

    Step one: finding what is holding you back emoticon Step two: make a plan to over come it, what are you going to do about it?

    I think I had some fear about losing weight at one point. Now that you've recognized it in yourself, take time to figure out why the fear is there... what's scary about being healthy?
