I’m a procrastinator. I have this nasty habit of putting things off until tomorrow. Or next week. Or next year. It is something that I struggle with and I have as long as I can remember.
But I need to lose some wait! If I want to lose weight then the procrastination has to stop.
I’ve spent over a quarter of a century putting on pounds of excess weight. I didn’t get to where I am overnight. But at any point along that journey I could have made the changes to a healthier life style and reversed the trend. But I was always waiting for something.
There are many changes that I need to make to lose weight and be healthier. But there is always a reason to wait before jumping into making those changes.
I know that I need to do some weight training to reach my goal. But I didn’t have the equipment and I hate going to the gym. So I waited.
Now I have the equipment. We found a wonderful BowFlex unit at a garage sale. It’s sitting in my garage all ready to go. But we were reorganizing and decluttering the house. The garage filled up with junk and I couldn’t get at the machine. So I waited.
Now the garage is cleaned up (mostly) and the access to the machine is there. But I’m not feeling up to it today. So I waited.
But no more. The waiting stops now. I’ve set myself a goal. I’ve made a plan to achieve it. There is nothing left to wait for. Well, maybe I could wait until …
What do you wait for? How are you going to stop waiting? If you have a story to share then post it in the comments below.
