I have been trying to lose weight for as long as I can remember. It seems as if I always go back to my old habits. It’s so hard for me to believe that this time will be different. I guess I don’t fully believe in my end result of losing 20 pounds because of the thought “I’ve never done this before”. I know that we’re supposed to think from our future and not our past but it’s so hard to get out of that thought loop! I don’t put action consistently towards my goals and still expect things to change. And I keep thinking I will probably never change and be this weight forever. It definitely makes me sad to think this. I always think I have to do something dramatic to lose weight instead of just telling myself this is a lifelong process. I need help focusing on my commitment issues with losing weight and a different thought that I can have about it.
This is my model.
C- I am a 135 pound woman (4’11” height)
T- I will never achieve my weight loss goal and will stay like this forever
R- Same body weight or gain weight
