The Hard Part
Is it starting? The diet, the exercise program, the new lifestyle.....
Is it losing the first 10, 20, 100 pounds?
Is it maintaining the diet, exercise program, new lifestyle?
Or is it that the road seems to stretch infinitely far ahead and when we look up, we see hardship, deprivation, and continual work until the day we drop over or stop caring about weight?
My supposition is it is really the secret thought (read fear) that it will ALWAYS be work and it will NEVER be easy -- that is the hardest part.
No matter which part is the hard part -- notice that some of my suggestions (or the ones that pop into your head) aren't as hard for you (and might even be stuff you consider easy).
Can you do more of the easy ones and less of the hard ones? Will that work to get you where you want to go? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
