Especially with diet, fitness, health, overcoming bad habits, overcoming addictions, food addictions, compulsive overeating, etc… you can expect it to be a lifelong journey.
So get comfortable with the struggle. Learn to enjoy the challenge.
When does it actually get fun? When you start giving yourself credit for where you’re at.
Realize that every good thing you’ve done, every healthy choice, every temptation resisted, every workout done, every positive thought — has allowed you to be here now, enjoying this life today at your level of health right now.
Then, as what you appreciate appreciates in value, you will start celebrating more of your successes, you start getting better at this struggle and a positive snowball of health, happiness, and goodness starts to build.
At times there are setbacks, bad days, difficulties and hurdles, but you can see the bigger picture. You know that you will get back on track quickly. You have many positive choices you can make even at this time to help you get back in the groove. It might take a few days or a week but you will not succumb to beating yourself up or believing in your feelings of despair. They are only feelings. They will pass.
It is your actions that count. And you can take healthy actions right now. You can start with one stretch, one walk, or one glass of water. You have a huge arsenal of healthy habits to choose from, and you don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to be perfect or have perfect conditions or any particular requirements to start. You can do it right here and now, exactly where you are at, with what you have.
Sure, set a goal, make a list, visualize, study, learn, and plan – those are actions too. But be sure to take one physical action towards your goal too; some action that could be the beginning of a healthy habit or set of habits.
Nurture and collect healthy habits and soon you will have a healthy lifestyle! Then you will experience a greater enjoyment of life and being alive in this body! Nobody can tell you exactly how to do it. You will find your own unique way that works for you! That’s the beauty of it. It is your personal journey.
And you are never really “there” completely, for long. Health is a journey, not a destination! Go it with joy!
