I’m starting again.
Sometimes life seemed to keep happening, which can get me farther & farther to be the person I want to be and/or living the life I want.
For example, I had lost 30 pounds & kept it off for over 3 years ago, happy with where I was with my mindset, physical/mental health, fitness and had stayed at my healthy lifestyle during that time.
I ended up gaining all that weight back
(plus, 40 ounces but who’s counting lol 😂) in the last 7 months.
First, I had disgust for myself.
Then followed self pity,
and ending off with a choice/determination to go to where I was comfortable within myself again & where I felt like me again.
This last part is the hardest part because it is normal to keep cycling between disgust, self pity, acceptance/comfort with where we don’t want to be. I am for myself, as this is what I kept cycling around with for YEARS & even decades prior!
Some of my excuses:
I had a child.
I didn’t have time.
I was busy taking care of all my responsibilities & caring for my family.
When I was making this change in my life, here’s a couple I noticed:
With ALLOWING myself to have a fresh new start within… can be the most empowering experience.
A lifestyle is like starting a new life.
Me re-evaluate all the things I was currently doing, with what you wanted to ACTUALLY be doing.
This reminded me, how much my mindset can make my goals happen OR not happen!
I must start there!
Don’t let your comfort zone hold you back from the life you want to live.
Live & love the life you CHOOSE to live!
