Fearless Thoughts

What goes into a lifestyle?

I’ve been thinking of how in order to lose weight I have to make a lifestyle change.  I know I have to stop eating burgers, fries, fried chicken, etc. and get on a regular exercise schedule.  I’ve know these things for years.  And yet I’ve been unable to get going and actually make the change.  I feel like if I give these things up I will give up a part of what makes me who I am because I’ve been the person who eats that way my entire life.

I also now understand that a lifestyle change is so difficult because it is a change in mindset.  The change in my lifestyle is a change in my personality and I’ve been pretty much the same person for quite some time now.

And it’s really not about one day at a time.  It’s about the long run.  I can do things for one day, for several weeks, for several months.  But I have to get to a point where I can maintain the change for several years and I just haven’t gotten to that point yet.

My mom says I can do anything I set my mind to.

My mind is both the problem and the solution.
