Self-Sabotage & My Plan to Overcoming It

Sometimes you are your biggest obstacle Endless justifications Giving yourself permission to stay the same My self wants to stay the same because it's comfortable Our modern lives condition us, more than ever, to seek & expect comfort I've been the same weight for around 12 years Excluding my internship at Google where I gained 30+ pounds, lost it, & plateaued again I promise to tell that story in a future episode When I zoom out & think about those 12 years, I'm comfortable weighing 280 pounds Which sounds ridiculous to say out loud & publish on the web When I zoom in on the day to day I am uncomfortable being overweight When I was a kid I was worried I wouldn't be tall enough to ride a rollercoaster As an adult I'm worried that I'm too overweight to ride a rollercoaster So I have to ask my self , "why are you so comfortable being uncomfortable?" & "why are you protecting that short-term comfort from the long-term comfort?"
