Step out of your comfort zone.

My poor baby kitty Riddick is sick. He has lost his voice and he is struggling to yawn. It seemed to be like he had a sore throat. We thought initially that it might have just been a furball so changed his food etc, although we took him to the vet today and he has feline laryngitis and it should come back after his course of anti inflamatories. They gave him some antibiotics in an injection as well, and hopefully he will be feeling better in a few days. 

The NAWLS Small Bite today is

Step out of your comfort zone.
There comes a time when what youa re doing stops working well. Then, it's time to try something new - weather you need to change your exercise routine, avoid a food that has become a trigger for overeating, or ask for support. 

Unfortunately, most people get very comfortable with their routines and habits. Too comfortable. Maybe the thought of changing makes you angry or afraid. some change is healthy. It helps you groe (or shrink as the case may be). You may need to get a personal trainer to help you learn how to boost your metabolism, or see a nutritionist about adjusting your menu. As the saying goes, feel your fear and make the change anyway. Long-term WLS success requires you to step out of your comfort zone. 

Action for the day:
When the tried and true stops working, it's time to try something new. Be honest with yourself. What do you need to change? Get out of your comfort zone and try something new today.

I am not sure that I need to try something new, but I think I need to get back to basics as I got too comfortable and thought I could try new things.....those new things became bad habits.....and now I need to get back to the basics and actually look at what is good for me, as opposed to what I want. I seem to be able to do well for about 3-4 days and then I lose my mojo again and I get distracted. Well it can't keep going this way!!!!!!!!!! I need to take control and I need to not keep slipping back into my comfort zone or doing what I feel like, rather than what I need to be doing for long term WLS success.
