There’s a saying that every person has a unique story, but you only pick the plot at the chapter you enter. We all have life struggles that end up making us who we are. Today, I’m taking this opportunity to address weight loss. Weight loss is your body healing itself both inside and out, physically and mentally! However, you don’t get what you wish for, you only get what you work for.
You wake up in the morning and the first thing you look at is the mirror and you surely not impressed with the person staring back at you. This might go on to a point where the mirror becomes your worst enemy and developing a feeling of self-pity, self-disgust and just downright denial. Don’t worry I’m not here to add pain to the wound but instead I’m here to help you be the change that you always wanted, trust me on this. It’s easier to wake up in the morning and workout than to look in the mirror each day and not like what you see.
I have a proposal, let’s begin this journey together! Well, have you ever heard that life talks to us? Whenever you feel all these pressures of life then trust me that is life pushing you in a positive way, and if you focus on change you will definitely get results.
Let’s get up and address our overweight worries, your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same. By this, I do not advocate for buying weight loss pills, injections or starving yourself you should learn to strive for progress, not perfection. Let’s agree on one thing before I go on, if you want to lose weight easily with no sweating or having to do what you have never dared to do before, then this article is definitely not for you! Eat clean, don’t starve! Live healthily, don’t diet and don’t just run, Lift!
Having said all these let’s agree on this, weight loss is not a journey but instead it’s a continuous process, get up every morning and tell yourself “ I can do this!”. Majority of people who take weight loss as a journey know and somehow believe deep down that, when the weight and extra fat is gone they will live happily after. I had such beliefs and I only wish I had Googled early enough what people don’t tell us about losing weight, so I didn’t have to learn the hard way.
Just like a journey, there’s always an end, the final destination. However, for weight loss even if you manage to lose weight you have to manage yourself and when you think of quitting, think about why you started and push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.
For you to cut weight you have to set your mind straight and discipline yourself towards that goal. Wake that lazy body up and make it sweat like it has never before! Your body will try to resist, you will always feel like procrastinating but don’t give in to that tempting sweet feeling, if you keep going you won’t regret it but if you give up you definitely will.
I challenge you to be waking up and look at the mirror and tell yourself that this is your past and it doesn’t define you anymore. Try to remember this, it all starts in your head and then confess it with your mouth, this is the body-mind connection.
This is always the first step to your weight loss process! If you skip this step then, the high probability you will give up on the way or you will let people’s negative sentiments get to you.
In two weeks you will feel it, in week 4 you will see it and in week 8 you will hear it. I challenge you to be a woman/man who is comfortable in his/her own skin and work out because you love your body but not because you hate it.
