Do you ever find that you hear something and then seemingly everywhere you turn you hear it again. Its not quite deja vu, or a premonition, maybe its a true coincidence.
Either way lately like I've said before I have been surrounding myself with all things weight loss. Blogs, websites, books, magazines, shows, etc.
One of the topics that keeps coming up is Determination. Determination can be defined as :a fixed purpose or intention. This is something that was very lacking in my past attempts at weight loss.
I would be determined for a little while but then give up when I didn't get the desired results quickly. I didn't have realistic goals and that just set me up for failure.
I was listening to a podcast about weight loss and the pod caster said that people will often have the desire to lose weight but then after a while has passed and they are sitting in front of a piece of cake the cake seems like something more real than the future weight loss.
It really got me thinking cause in so many instances this has been true for me. I'll be going along great and then I would only have a small loss or whatever and the next thing I know I'm devouring something. It was like I said to myself oh well if you can't lose fast than why bother losing at all.
The mind is really such a tricky thing and that's why I am constantly surrounding myself, I have to work on the mind-I don't want this to be all for not, I want to change.
