Today’s journal prompt is very simple. Answer this question:
What are you waiting for?
For me, this can be a big question. It seems simple enough but depends on the context. I am journaling for weight loss so I applied this to choosing to lose weight. Many things have kept me waiting. Fear is a huge one. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of not knowing where to start. Lack of motivation kept me stagnant for a while. There are also times I just don’t care and have no desire to lose weight. I have had so many excuses over the years.
I’m glad I have broken out of that for now. I am working out, eating healthy, have had the surgery to help me, going to counseling, and seeing a trainer. I feel like I am giving this my best efforts. This is a good question to keep in mind though when I find myself lacking progress.
