Getting Mentally Prepared

I keep telling myself that I want to transform my body.  I know what to do physically and in terms of my “diet”.  Mentally, I am falling short.  I cannot seem to break through that mental wall.


It’s repetitive.  I do it day in and day out.  I want to take a sledgehammer to the wall.  The big question is, how?  How do I break through the mental block I continuously have when it comes to my personal transformation?  I’ve created a series of questions that may, or may not, help.

1.  What do I wish to accomplish in setting exercise goals?

2.  Do I have a mental image of what my goal looks like?

3.  Am I afraid of achieving my goal?

4.  Is there pain involved in getting to my goal?

5.  What exactly am I afraid of?

I think fear of something is keeping me from getting to my goal; however, I have no clue as to what that fear is.  I’ve hidden behind my weight for so many years while dreaming of being thin and healthy.  It’s absolute madness.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.  I’m beyond the point of insanity.  I’m ready.  I have my goal and I have my objectives.  I will break through this mental wall and get to my goals.

    You’re right, it totally is mental. Good job for pushing through! In my experience though, exercise isn’t everything. What you eat is also essential, and ironically enough, I’ve found that eating also has an important mental aspect.
