I’ll think about it. Right now, it’s drying by itself. I prefer to minimize the amount of heat I put on my hair so, it can dry by itself and then I’ll pop it up on hot rollers. That reduces the amount of time, too.
So, I get an email from Sarah Jenks in the night. Today is ‘now or never’ day to sign up for her class. She’s not offering it again until sometime in 2015, I think the email said. OK – bully for her.
I sort of get what she says – there will always be something in the way. Before I decided to do Optifast, I put up every single roadblock I could: 1) I can’t afford it 2) my doctor won’t approve, 3) my therapist will think it’s not a good idea and 4) I can’t fit it in with my work schedule. I make the appointment to go their program introduction. But before I attended that introduction, I made an appointment with the doc – she as all for it. And I spoke to my therapist, and while she had a few concerns, she felt I could handle it. So two roadblocks removed. I went to the introduction meeting and the facility had a payment plan and explained how some of my daily costs would go down. The third roadblock was gone. And lastly, they had an evening session that as long as I practiced discipline with my time at work, I could make. The 4th roadblock was gone. The only roadblock left was myself.
I chose to participate and I did lose the weight. And I kept it off until all kinds of roadblocks started cropping up again. And I think perhaps the biggest thing I got out of Sarah’s program was that I have to find a way to remove the roadblocks again.
What are those roadblocks?
- I absolutely refuse to go on another diet, yet I need to lose weight and boy howdy, I can be right cruel to myself in thinking and in action
- I have difficulties with conflict and right now there is a conflict with my husband about how my time is spent.
Hmmm, I had to edit quite a bit and in the process I’ve decided I have one roadblock: mindset. I’ll explore that a bit more in future posts.
