You’re at a point in your weight loss journey where you feel stuck. You’re not quite at your goal. Or maybe you’ve been at goal and gained a little and want to get back to goal. You are struggling getting back into the mojo you had previously. Remember that desperate desire to be at goal? Although you still want to be at goal you can’t
seem to get your act together to make it happen. Why?
I hear this story a lot. In fact I live it too.
I have thought about it quite a bit. I’m starting to realize that we get all worked up about something we don’t have. We are focusing and wanting something we don’t have.
Why not want what we have?
Why not take some time and be satisfied with where you are? Learn to be where you are. Take a break and be kind to yourself rather than continually beating on yourself because you are NOT AT GOAL.
Take some time to BE where you are. Learn how it feels to maintain. Take some time to appreciate yourself.
There is a lot of focus on losing. And I know that is the objective. But, if you know me, my biggest teaching is
Losing the weight is one thing. Keeping it off is another.
Sometimes a stall, whether it is induced by our bodies or by ourselves emotionally, is a sign to take a break.
Our body is telling us it needs to take a break. In fact it is insisting on a break.
Take advantage of it. Take sometime and appreciate your new body. What does it feel like? Consider how far you have come.
When we take time to appreciate what we have there is a calm. This calm will in fact bring better clarity to your journey. Those desperate feelings will lessen. And you can in fact begin again to work down to your goal with a calm, focused approach. Appreciating what you have and knowing that you are a success because of where you came from. You know you can better yourself.
