If you aren't reaching your goals there could be a HUGE 4 letter word stopping you from them. FEAR. Fear can stop anything dead in it's tracks before you even get a chance to try something new. I would love to go skydiving someday. It is actually on my bucket list, but I am terrified of heights. I have talked myself out of skydiving so many times just because of my fear.
A couple years ago when I started this leg of my journey, it wasn't the first time I had tried losing weight. I was still scared to try again because I "failed". I seriously thought I had failed before and I didn't want to fail again, but I got over my fear of failure and started again. And I am so glad that I did because it has led me to here and to recognize that I have never failed before. I stumbled. Do not let fear get in the way. This time is different because you have more support, more motivation, and more determination to kick butt and make this work!
If you are not getting the results you want, I want you to find sometime today to think about what might be holding you back. And Fear might be one of those reason. You have to release the fear and once you do you will see changes going.
How do you release the fear?
1) Make a list of the things that give you fear. Fear of failure. Fear of hitting a plateau. Fear of not following the food plan. Fear of actually losing the weight and life being different. These are all normal fears.
2) Look at your list and write down the opposite of fear. What good would come out of your fears in the end.
3) Don't be defined by your list. Because FEAR can be overcome!
4) Work everyday to overcome your fear to show yourself that you can do it!
