And...I think it's really important that I complete this task. Why? Because I am really, really, really good at NOT completing tasks.
I mean, in school and at work, I was always a goody goody. I got everything (plus extra) done.
But, in my personal life?
I have all these plans and set all these goals. Occasionally that's as far as I get (the goal setting). Or, I may start working towards something with minimal enthusiasm. And, every once in a while... I start with all kinds of willpower and motivation.
But I almost always quit before I achieve my goal.
And, it's one of the things I hate MOST about myself. I don't know why I can be so diligent and hardworking if it's for other people... but not put in the same kind of effort if it's for me and my own well being or pleasure.
I know that other people can trust me. And that's great. But, I want to be able to trust myself!!
I am excited that when this challenge is over, I'll be reporting a weight loss for the month. And, beyond sticking to the goal of writing everyday, that is REALLY what this month was about. I just need to get the ball rolling and hopefully it will pick up steam and provide all kinds of success for me.
I'd like to think that next October, I could blog 31 days about what it's like to be skinny after being overweight my whole life.
That's a challenge I could get on board with!
