The struggle to achieve our goals and reach our destination can seem like a thousand years.
Especially when we battle with the habits and things that tend to have us gridlocked because we gain 20 steps and plunge back to square one faster than it took to gain those 20 steps.
Battling with weight is not an easy entity in particular for those who eat out of emotion and spiritual loneliness.
As a woman who has struggled for weight more than half of my life I can't count how many Monday's I vowed to stay focused and committed to shedding those pounds.
Then by Friday feeling guilt as I enjoy some sinful delight.
As I watch Oprah Winfrey on the weight watcher commercial it makes me feel very much inspired because I know am not alone on this journey and I know that while it is self disappointment when I falter and lose my control with my eating habits and emotional eating that it takes a great deal of strength to number one, acknowledge and also to rise up and try again.
While I can sit and beat myself up for the amount of times that I have failed, I can gather strength for knowing what needs to be done and trying once again.
I have to remember that the goal that I want to acheive is not to fit into society but an goal that I have set for myself.
Once I have established that I want to achieve weight loss and changing my eating habits and my life style I will then find that strength to find other outlets in which to release my emotions rather than by food.
Indeed weight loss is no easy task but its something that is not impossible to be done.
Count not your failures but embrace and hold tightly to the force of strength that kept you when you were eating right.
Living in the world of the plus size can be complex and also painful but we will never find strength in our weakness and our times of falling.
Rather our strength comes from reminiscing our hours of strength.
If it takes a million Monday's one Monday must be that Monday when we achieve our goals.
The key is self forgiveness and motivation to get back on that road even if it takes a thousand beginings.
