Weight Loss for Life - How to Overcome Speed Bumps!
Yesterday evening my computer hard drive crashed. Resulting in the loss of at least six months worth of hard work. By not thinking ahead, it will most likely cost me one thousand dollars to recovery all the data. What is the price worth to you for priceless information?
I took a break this morning from thinking about my loss and went to Lowe's hardware store to pick up some items I needed to remodel my office. Driving through the parking lot afterwards the speed bumps seemed much larger. Why? The reason is; I had a plan, a destination and a purpose going in, coming out I did not. Going in, my mind was on what I needed to do in order to get the job finished. I was concentrating on the task at hand. Driving away I did not have that sense of urgency so I noticed my surroundings more and what I was experiencing.
Have you ever had difficulty losing weight, staying focused on your eating plan and all you could think about was the big obstacle in your way or the pizza you so desperately thought you needed to have? The more you thought about them the bigger the speed bump became, the hungrier to got.
You and I are always going to have set backs in our quest to lose weight and feel better. How we look at them matters most however. Speed bumps will come, some in forms of losing our data on a computer, gaining a few pounds or even wanting to just give up. And yes, you could and no one would know. I could stop writing articles on weight loss and say, "What's the use, all my hard work has been lost, no one will know?" But, NO! We get right back on the horse, we stick with what matters most to us and our health and we move forward. We take the speed bumps as they come, we understand they are there for a reason and we go over them as hard as they may be. Here are a few suggestions on overcoming speed bumps:
1. Write down your exercise and fitness goals for life.
2. Write out a contingency plan for when you encounter a speed bump.
3. Continue to focus on the big picture or your main goal.
4. Get some one to be able to talk to and support you during the speed bump times.
5. Understand you will have rough times.
