SELF SABOTAGE & THAT AHA MOMENT

Monday, August 05, 2019

Do you know what Self Sabotage is? Can you identify it in your life? for years in my struggle with my weight loss I always blamed the programs I was doing … the Coaches I swore I was doing everything the exact way I was supposed and then one day I realized I wasn't being honest with them or myself.. that is why this time around I am finally loosing weight... learning more about me and doing better.. but still I was yo yo ing .. you know what that is right? I would loose 2 lbs gain 1.5 or even 2 back and suddenly not to long ago an aha moment … It was pure SELF SABOTAGE. As soon as I started loosing I would screw up I would not track ,... eat the wrong foods... pretend it was ok. I was so proud of my self because I went back over years of journals and tracking information and figure out the real problem... ME AND ONLY ME. all the way around no doubt about it. Now that I know this I wont do it anymore right!!! Wrong. I FINALLY was down a full 10 lbs and this weekend I did it again.. I have not tracked since lunch time Friday... Have eaten candy and garbage that I never eat any more snacked after going to bed and even in the middle of the night.. all while convincing myself it was fine.. and telling that nagging stupid voice that's saying "WHAT ARE YOU DOING … AGAIN" to shut up … I have this. Well I do have this but the I is that nagging voice. its the one that I need to listen to. I gained 2 lbs thanks to self sabotage and even though I have Identified the problem and and I know its me I still don't know how to make sure I don't do it again I guess by sharing this I am hoping that some of you will share your stories and victories with me on how you got over self sabotage!
I cant do this to me or my nagging voice again.
