And suddenly there’s fear.

Saturday, 8 January 2011

Well, my first Weigh In is tomorrow. And I have been excited about it for a while as I’ve noticed my weight dropping quite a bit this week.

But suddenly, I’m scared.

What if it gets hard?
What if I don’t continue to lose the weight?
What if I don’t lose it as quickly as I would like?

It has just seemed too easy this first week.
Have I been too positive?
Am I getting my hopes up too high?

What if…?
What if…?
What if…?

Fear. There it is. Fear of failure. Fear I don’t have what it takes. Fear that I’ve been dreaming all week believing I can do this, and do it quickly.

And now, I remind myself:
. Be open.
. Remain positive.
. Leave unnecessarily high expectations behind.
and
. Keep at it.
. I am doing a great job and I have what it takes.

xx Natalie.
