Vision Helping or Hindering

Helen Keller said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” 

What is your vision for your health journey?  Genuinely, what do you envision, expect, believe?  Write it down. 

For those 40 years I was sleeping at the end of the string of the Diet Yo-Yo, I wanted to be thin.  I longed for all I thought it would mean or make me feel.  However, when it came time to eat, my willpower evaporated.  “Just this once, and then I’ll get back on it,” was the lie I believed over and over. 

Mind, it wasn’t like I actually believed I COULD lose the weight, or if I did manage that, how long would it last?  All the women in my family seemed to be on a perpetual diet – losing followed quickly by regaining the same weight over and over again, so that was my vision.  Therefore, that became my reality for 40 years.

What’s your vision again? 

See what I mean?  We’ve been conditioned to the idea that we can never escape the diet thing.  We think that once this diet ends, we’ll have a little time to go back to our old ways, but eventually, we’ll regain some weight and have to start again.  Hopefully not too much.  Then we wake up one day, and we’re 30 pounds heavier. 

Without a vision, the people perish  Proverbs 29:18

What is your vision? How would you like to change it to suit your goal?
