Weight Loss Frustrations? Slippery Slopes ? One Fall And Down You May Go!
If you have ever been snow skiing you know that one wrong move, one glance away or one split second of lost focus may get you in a heap of trouble. The hard part comes trying to stop the slide down the slope. It doesn't take much and the next thing you know, you have hit the bottom only to look up and find yourself wishing you had it to do over again, this time much different and with more focus and preparation.
Have you ever made one slip in your workout program and down you went? Doesn't seem like much at the time, but that's all it takes to get the snowball rolling. You make one little excuse not to exercise, you have one day off the wagon of your eating program and wham! Down you go, slipping and sliding all the way until you bottom out and want to quit. And some of you do quit. All you are looking for is one permission slip, one little fall on a hill and that's it. To hard, not worth the effort why bother any more?
Or you may be the type that says, "Well one time is not bad, I'll do it tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and you have some other stupid reason not to exercise. Before you know it, again, you're looking up at that hill thinking, "How did I get here?"
Your best defensive in preventing a fall is to not give yourself a permission slip to fall. As far as you should be concerned there is no permission slips handed out. There are no options, there are no slippery slopes. You have signed up, you have purchased a lift ticket for the rest of your life to exercise and eat right. Yes, there will be days that you will fall short of a goal, but that doesn't mean you give yourself permission to do so. Yes, there are days when you need to take a day off physically and mentally those days are necessary, however, making an excuse is much different.
I see it almost daily. People will come up with some reason not to, and some sound really legitimate, then that leads to another and another until they have stopped for good.
I encourage you and challenge you to always be on guard. Once you start down that slippery slope of making excuses not to workout that day, may be the beginning of a long hike back up the mountain.

Weight Loss Motivation: I CAN DO IT!
Several months ago I was in desperate need of weight loss motivation. As I was observing my friend's kindergarten classroom I was struck by an idea when I saw her in action. One of her students was filled with self-doubt and seemed to truly believe that he was unable to accomplish the task my friend was requesting of him. She kneeled by his side and patiently showed him once again what was expected of him. After hearing, "I can't do it!" several times, she quietly got up and walked across the room. When she returned she was holding a can that was covered in 'google eyes.' She placed it on his desk and asked, "Do you know what this is?" He shook his head and she whispered, "It's an 'EYE CAN' and every time you doubt yourself you can put it on your desk." He looked up at her with an extremely confused look on his face and she went on to explain, "When you see this can sitting on your desk it will remind you that you 'CAN' do it!" To make sure he understood, she asked him again what it was. He looked up at her and replied, "It is an 'I CAN'!" He bent down and began working with a new found confidence and the 'I CAN' stayed on his desk for the remainder of the day.
