I remember when I hated the way my clothes fit
when I felt insecure about how I looked in a bikini.
When I struggled to have the energy to get out of bed at the first alarm in the morning.
When I looked at people in shape and wondered if it could be me.
I used to think it would take so much energy I didn’t have.
So much time I didn’t want to spend.
So much pain I didn’t want to experience.
Yet I failed to realize how much time I was spending on trying to distract myself from my guilt and shame.
How much time I spent being unproductive because I was operating at such low energy.
How I lived a dull level of discontent all day, every day, and repeatedly felt bad about myself because of my continual failure to achieve the health and body I wanted.
…the funny thing is, it took me the same energy to be unhappy and unhealthy as it did to be happy with my body and healthy.
I just used the energy positively in a way that supported me, rather than beat myself up and stayed stuck.
Let me encourage you…it’s not harder to lose weight than it is to stay the same. It’s just different actions and feelings.
The right feelings and actions will have you feeling empowered and strong, the wrong ones will have you feeling stuck and frustrated.
I implore you…don’t get stuck (like I did), feeling it’s harder to lose weight and be happy and be unhappy.
It’s just a choice, to be trapped or be free.
So please…as if your life depended on it.
