THE WISE MAN HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD - AGAIN

WHY PEOPLE SEEM TO BE STUCK LIVING IN FAT CITY:

7. Our inability to finish things.

We start jogging. We stop. GUILTY
We go on a diet. We go off it. DOUBLE GUILTY
We join a gym. We go five times. PHEW, NOT GUILTY ON THIS ONE (I TRAIN AT HOME)
We make resolutions. We don't follow through. PREVIOUSLY, VERY GUILTY
We lose fat. We regain it. LOST COUNT OF HOW MANY TIMES - PROBABLY A SQUILLION (WHICH IS THE WORLD"S BIGGEST NUMBER)
We start. We stop. ABSOLUTELY GUILTY - WOULD WIN THE GOLD FOR THIS ONE
We get fit. We get unfit. A LITTLE GUILTY - NOT MY WORST OFFENCE
We operate on emotion. IS THERE ANOTHER WAY??
We always find a 'reason' to give up. PREVIOUSLY - YES!!
We experience momentary motivation, but we never truly commit. Real commitment ("I will do this no matter what") creates life-long change, not temporary weight loss or occasional fitness. TRUER WORDS HAVE NEVER BEEN SPOKEN.

Thank you Mr Harper. Once again, you've hit the nail on the head.

Cheers

Magda

Great to see that you are finding your way Magda. I nodded in agreement at your post before about "choosing" to do sprints. It wasn't until I read that, that I realised that is how my attitude toward cardio changed. Rather than thinking that I had to do cardio as a necessary evil, because I had built my fitness up I started looking forward to it and see just how much I could pack into a session and what I could do to get the most out of each one.

Keep up the great work!! Working on changing your mental attitude is the hardest part of your transformation without a doubt. It has taken me a few years to get to this point. I don't want that to make you think "CRIPES... A FEW YEARS???" when reading that, I just want to get across to you that it will take some time and won't happen overnight. But if you keep persisting and never give up on your dream to gain control over your eating, then it will happen for you xxx
