Focus On The End Results

Current Weight: 220 lbs
Body Fat: 29.7%
Change 18: Focus on the End Results

Sometimes things fall by the wayside. There are many possible reasons or excuses, but the only real reason is priorities. We set and follow our priorities, which can change from minute to minute. "Is it more important to sleep in this morning, or get out of bed and exercise?" This is typically thought to one level, and not deeper, making it easier to change priorities in the moment.

What we need to do is focus on the end results, not our current desires. Yes, that brownie or piece of cake sure would taste good, but it would interfere with our end goal of losing weight. While our current priority might be the feeling of pleasure the dessert would give us, our long term priority of losing the weight needs to take precedence.
