I am not going to lie my journey has not been easy. I didn’t enter this fitness journey for shallow goals to become skinny. I enter this journey to change my life and one day become a mother . Every year, since I gained over 267 lbs, I would promise this year I will lose the weight, and every year I never fully dedicated myself to putting in the work. I WANTED FAST RESULTS, but didn’t want to put in the hard work.
Last year March 2013 I decided that enough was enough. I joined a gym,I changed what I ate and I decide that I am going to put in the hard work. My mindset was different from the past, I didn’t want fast result, I wanted to change my lifestyle.
In the beginning I lived in the gym. I know I wanted to lose weight, and seeing results was a constant motivation.
But then you hit your plateau, when everything your doing is not showing any results. Slowly you reevaluate everything and sometimes you lose motivation. When you starting losing motivation remind yourself why you started this journey.
- Be Patient
- Keep monthly goals
- Don’t be afraid to try new techniques
- Make it Fun
- You will have occasional bad days
- You will lose a workout now and then
- You will have setbacks
You just have to keep going. …
But remember “What we endure shows our courage”
