I can’t seem to make myself mobile. I want to. It feels like there is a negativity in me that makes me think exercise, cleaning, etc is not worthwhile. I know it is. I also call in sick to work just from being lazy. any suggestions would be very helpful. i am rather ashamed since lazy people are often also described as good for nothing. I am obese, hate that..but I don’t know how to summon the willpower to get up and just do it.
This is something that only you can do for yourself. No one else can do this for you, only you. You have to want to do this first off, then you must make a conscious choice to do so. You might make an appointment with your doctor, tell him what you’d like to do, and he can help you come up with a workable plan.
I used to be in the same boat. It all starts with a positive outlook on life. That, and one other key component. In order to make yourself a more energetic and free person, you need to break out of your comfort zone. From time to time as you sit around on the couch, urge yourself to get up and stretch or do some jumping jacks. It actually does more than you think. Gradually push yourself to do the things that you WANT to do, but have never had the nerves TODAY do. I used to think that it would never work, but I was persistent and I never gave up. The amount of change I’ve seen in myself is amazing. You have the capabilities to make the exact same progress:)
You are very kind, intelligent and you appear to know exactly what is wrong without making excuses for yourself.
That’s a great start. You need support,you need someone to say” you can do this, I’m not taking no for an answer anymore”they
need to demand action when you slide. It doesn’t need to be big steps, you didn’t get this way overnight, it’s going to take time, maybe a lot. Every little step is a piece to the big puzzle.
You are a perfectionist, you don’t see it turning out perfect so you become paralyzed, overwhelmed and do nothing. You are afraid of failing, things not being perfect so you do nothing. Talk, get some help, if not from family or friends seek professional BUT you need support, it might be determined you need a med to lift you. Whatever, YOU GOT THIS!!
You can do it!
Motivation yourself start with this, you only you can make this happen, there is no fire that will be under you unless you say ouch. Self help stop putting off today what you could have done yesterday. What is really important do you think, wouldn’t you want self-esteem instead of feeling sorry for yourself? Everyone goes thru a slump in their life at least one time in life but they make a positive come back and try their best not to fall back in life. I see others complaining about their bored lives, but theirs the one who don’t try changing them instead they dwell in this misery and feed on it. You have to convince yourself your ready for a change which is beginning today and don’t. look back to fall back into this rut ever again. Give yourself the will power to change and make this difference set forth and take that step now wish you well and luck.
I think best way to help with this is find a friend who is willing to help you. My friend helped me shed 90 pounds just by walking of course it wasn’t easy at first but it help me do it. You have to decide that is what you want to do and saying positive things over yourself is good. I hope this has helped you feel better.
