I have NO idea what the heck I was searching when I came across this image in google but as soon as I saw it, I stole a copy. Now I feel bad because I can’t give credit. I need to get better at that. Anyway, here’s the image…
What a quote, huh? This ones just speaks volumes to me. We hear so much about weight loss. Results not typical, yada, yada. How keeping it off is almost impossible, yada yada. Even our own histories and failed attempts start wear on us a bit. We really start to think it’s impossible. I know I did.
But how many times have you failed because you stopped trying. Come on now, admit it, I know I’m not the only one. I’m not doubting that there are people out there who are genuinely doing everything they possible can to lose weight and get healthier but hit a brick wall for reasons beyond their control. I’m talking to the ones that are like me, or at least the way I used to be. The ones that "start again" every Monday. The ones that set unrealistic goals and don’t forgive themselves when they indulge. The ones that don’t think they are worth it. I didn’t fail because I couldn’t succeed I failed because I stopped trying. I’d give up, thinking it was impossible.
Well guess what, it IS possible. You have to work at it. I’m not going to lie, it’s tough. There’s no magic pill. There’s no magic plan. It’s an uphill battle IF you chose to fight it. You have to drop your negative self talk. You have to love who you are body and soul. You really have to think you are worth it and most importantly, you have to TRY.
OK, I have NO idea where that came from. I just started typing like a possessed women. It’s funny how certain things inspire us.
