When you get caught in the trap of looking for the end result you end up getting frustrated that you are not there yet. Frustration often leads to quitting and getting set further back. This is a vicious cycle to get into that can leave you stuck.

You need to change your focus. Stop looking for a certain number on the scale, stop looking for a certain size on your clothing tags. Instead look for healthy things you can do every day. Focus on feeding your body the good foods it needs, focus on healthy habits, focus on doing what you need to do each day. Before you know it the results you desire will occur.

Please don’t forget, nothing worth doing is easy, at least not at first. Everything you have ever had to learn was hard before you learned it. We’ve forgotten how many times we fell when we were learning how to walk, but watch a toddler who is just starting out and you will see that it is WORK! We were made to walk but we still have to work those muscles and learn how to do it.

At some point in life you learned how to read or you wouldn’t be getting much out of this article at this point. There was a time in your life, however, where this page would have been nothing more than gibberish with a pretty picture to you; but you put in the work to learn how to read. In the beginning sounding out the word c-a-t was hard, now you do it without thinking.

Think of all of the things you do in life that now take you no effort whatsoever. At one point all of those things took time and effort to learn. Why should having a healthy lifestyle be any different? You can’t expect to just wake up one morning after a lifetime of making unhealthy choices and suddenly think healthy choices are going to come easily. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort to learn a new skill. You’re going to have to rethink your choices and it will take some time to figure out what changes you need to make. But none of those things are impossible, and all of them are worth it. Before you know it you will be making healthy choices without having to conciously think about it at all.

I wanted to add one more weekly feature to the blog and decided on this: Words of Encouragement Wednseday. It’s half way through the week and all of us can use a little pick me up! Therefore, each Wednsday I will try to have a motivational post to give your week a little boost.

This week I am totally just going to point you to the podcast! You need encouragement, not only this week but for making it through what Pearl dubbed in this podcast as “the eating season”. Is is possible to get through this eating season without guilt and weight gain? You bet it is! I hope you will find as much encouragement in this weeks show as I did!
