I'm full of fear today. Why? Because of the past. Right now I am so motivated to lose weight and I feel like nothing can stop me. I see victory on the horizon, and it is close and attainable. I'm completely focused on my goals. So why should I be afraid?
Because I've felt this way in the past and still managed to fail. How does this happen? Does anyone else have this fear?
Two years ago I started my weight loss journey after weighing in at 178 lbs. I worked out daily (Jillian Michaels book's program) and lost a lot of weight. I got down to 152 within a few short months right before I went to Hawaii. I was feeling great. But then I got comfortable. I was no longer within the "overweight" category. I was healthy! So then I stopped working out...I stopped counting calories... Guess what? Flash forward to this year and I'm back up to 168 and climbing.
How do you overcome the cycle?
