The truth is, losing weight is hard. really, really hard. it's not quick, it isn't always fun, and it definitely isn't glamorous. it's easy for someone to look at the selfies people post before and after their workouts and think that it's different or easier for them. but i'm here to tell you, it isn't. trying to lose my grief weight means i'm carrying around 30 pounds of fear, guilt, self-doubt, defeat, and failure. it takes every ounce of me to change my mindset before and even during every single workout.
sometimes i talk myself out of a workout.
sometimes i quit halfway through.
sometimes i don't give it my all.
i hate that. but, success is a journey not a destination. all i can do is keep moving forward. i can't afford to let my excuses and past failures hold me back any longer.
