What is your greatest personal fear? What are you doing to overcome it? Two of my biggest personal fears are reaching my goal weight…and growing old alone. I have always associated so many things with my weight as an excuse….I believe I have been fearful of getting to my stretch goal weight of 175….and life not being perfect. For example…when I get to my goal weight I will start my own company. When I get to my goal weight I will get my certification. When I get to my goal weight I will get serious about finding a relationship in my life because I will have better body that someone will be attracted to more. All of this created a fear of…what if life is not perfect at goal weight? Then it would not be about the weight, it would be about me. So I built up this crazy fear of being at goal and everything is not perfect.
This is something I am working really hard on right now. I can get my certification on the way to goal. I can build my company on the way to goal. I can get serious about dating and a relationship with the body I have now. Hitting my stretch goal should be a CELEBRATION…..not a fear. What about you? What is your fear? Have you created that fear? Can you tackle it and overcome it?
If you are going to loose weight, you need to set some goals and stick to it.
