Weight Loss and the Struggle

This is long. Rambling. But my thoughts on weight loss and the struggle. 

Every day you wake up feel blessed to be alive. For life is far to short. Every day is a blank slate to start new. If you stumbled yesterday jump up today and get it done. 

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you've imagined. You only live once. Grab life and make it yours. 

Each day is a new day to eat right, work hard, and feel good!! 

Weight loss is hard. Getting in shape is hard. 

It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication. It will require will power. You will need to make healthy choices. It requires sacrifice. You will have to say no when you really want to say yes, or it will require you to say yes when you really want to say no. 

You will need to push your body to the max. You will not die. Your brain gives up before your body will. Puke. Pass out. Get up. Keep going. There will be tons of temptations. This I promise you. But I also promise you as you start reaching goals it will be worth it. 

I've learned that if I focus on results and a number I never change. Instead if I focus on healthy and positive changes, I get results. I promise. It works. 

Don't tell yourself you can't do it. You can. I swear. Limits and fears are just an illusion that your brain makes. They're obstacles your brain uses to try and take the easy way out. 

There is no secret or magic potion or trick to losing weight and getting in shape. You just have to do it. Grind it out. Day in. Day out. Workout. Eat clean. Workout more. Eat clean more. Make this your life. You will reach your goals. 

So here is to ordering a salad when you really want that burger. 

Here's to trying that new fitness class and making an ass out of yourself the first time. I've done it. You'll do it too. Suck it up. Get it done. 

Here is to drinking so much water you'll swear you're turning into a fish. It's okay. It's good for you. 

Here's to going 5 more minutes on the bike or treadmill or whatever equipment. Push yourself to the max. You'll thank yourself. 

Here's to saying "screw you" to the old you. 

Here's to falling in love with the new you! 

Here's to dreaming of the you that you're becoming and knowing you can do it. 

Here's to looking into the mirror and not seeing any change but throwing on your running shoes. Putting in your headphones. Having a full water bottle and entering the gym in beast mode anyways. 

Here's to finally seeing that major change in the mirror. Others will see it before you. You'll doubt yourself and that's okay. One day it'll all come together in your head. 

Here's to carrots, shin splints, sweaty tee-shirts, perseverance, sore muscles, stinky socks, 4 am gym times, spin classes, personal trainers, falling down, failing, standing up, and reaching goals. 

Here is to doing it over and over again until you're the best you that you can be!
