Hello to the Blog Hoppers!
I know we all say that we're doing it for ourselves. Really we have to. If we don't say it's for our very own self, our chances of making life-long changes diminish. Our chance of failure increases. We have to value our own life (and living), our own body, our own emotions. We have to put in the work.
HOWEVER, I just wanted to at least admit to myself and you all, that hearing other people notice the work and the results is sooooo delicious. People used to say to me "Oh you look like you've lost weight" and I knew I hadn't. Now when they say it, I can say "Yeah, 13 pounds. Can you believe it?"
I'm really proud of what I'm doing here. Having people notice it is like adding a gust of wind to a sail that is already full. Just pushes me that little much more.
I hope in a little way it can inspire the people around me who says they can't do it, or that they don't want to do it, or that say they're doing it but don't know what they're doing. I'm hoping I can encourage my dad to commit to the process.
You know, someone said to me today that they don't want to give up their junk food. And you'd be amazed...once you start putting in the work and seeing results, the junk food isn't on your radar, and if it is, it's the tiniest little blip.
