Sometimes thoughts just pop into my head. I try to not dwell on them too long. This morning I am thinking of some of the same old fears that creep into my head.
I thought maybe others would want to share some similar fears or anxieties. If you have ways that you work through those fears/anxieties, please share!
I fear that I will never get to ultimate goal weight. I have lost weight numerous times over the past 20 years and each time I lose up to about 60 pounds and then I lose momentum. I bargin with myself at that point that I will maintain for a bit and then get to losing again. This never has happened, I have maintained for up to about 2 years before at the partial goal and then slowly gained weight back.
I don't want this to happen again.
One difference this go round is I am not trying to reach any specific weight by any specific date. I have no upcoming wedding, reunion, etc to lose weight for. I am simply trying to be healthy. I want to be able to like the body I see in the mirror and to be able to wear normal sized clothing.
The second difference this time is that I have begun intentional, consistent exercise.
