WordPress family I know I just posted but this 1 is weighing on my heart. I fell for the glitz and glam of all the comments, congratulations and cheer about my weightloss but I am not where I want to be so why did I
- Slow down on the workouts
- Throw watching what I ate out the window
- Refusing to acknowledge I was heading down the road I have scratched and kicked to get away from
Here is why. I allowed myself to think what others saw as satisfying or accomplished to be my new standard when I already set the bar for myself, which this is not what this is about. I did not embark on a weight loss journey for any of this I promise you. I had no idea people would look to me as some Shero or Inspiration. Even when people tell me these type of things it feels weird. I started because I wanted to get a hold of my life, do you know how it feels to walk up some stairs and loose your breath? Do you know how it feels when your doctor says you have high blood pressure and by the way you are obese? Well I know that very well and very recent. I am still 22 lbs from my goal so how can I walk around and be satisfied just because others said I should be.
Same for you . I want us both to get something out of this post. Moral of this post is don’t get caught up in what others think you should be doing or how satisfied you should be but remember why you are doing something in the 1st place. Yes accept peoples nice or not so nice comments. Allow people to celebrate you if that is what they want but dont stop going for the big sha-bang if you feel like you have more to do. Appreciate where you are, what you have done so far and keep going if YOU see need be. Dont stop or keep going based on other peoples opinion but keep going based on how you feel and what you feel needs to get done.
**Picks mic back up** Oh yeah lets kick some major butt we only have 1 life YOU DESERVE THE BEST & I WANT YOU TO DO GREAT IN ALL THAT YOU DO … YOU WANNA KNOW WHY BECAUSE YOU ARE AWESOME!!
