Day 40 - The Beck Diet Solution
You know what I mean. When I lose this weight, I'll.......
What are you waiting to do when you lose weight?
Of course, there are some things that are not physically possible to do when you're obese or even overweight, skydiving comes to mind!
But she is addressing the psychological barriers we put on ourselves. Have you done this? Convinced yourself you can't go to the beach until you look good in a bathing suit?
Can't run until you're skinny?
Can't go on vacation until your legs look good in shorts?
Can't go on a date until you lose 20lbs?
Beck says to live now, stop putting your life on hold for that magical day. Live now and enjoy life and do those things that you want to do. Your life will be enriched, your confidence will soar and you will learn to love yourself more.
I honestly believe that loving yourself is key to this whole journey. That happens when you start to treat yourself the way you treat everyone else you love the most, when you start letting yourself do what you want, what you love and what inspires you.
Sure, as you lose weight, you will naturally gravitate towards doing things you didn't do before, but start now.
Remember, we're not promised tomorrow.
