Are you about to give up?
I know you have ask yourselves this many a time!! I know for a fact I have so many times I can’t count them!! Basically Here, I’m talking about the “H” word HEALTH however you want to put it healthy life, healthy eating, healthy living, healthy input, healthy exercise, healthy bowel movements!! But for me It’s Healthy ALL OF THE ABOVE!!
If you have followed my previous post on my Health Journey you know by now I have had my ups and downs; And If you have not read them I encourage you to do so just so you know I’m human! We all are!! (This post will be linked to the latter ones I spoke of).
Half of February and up till today I have been up and down on the scale some of it my fault and some not, But I’m here to tell you I have had many days thinking about just throwing in the towel and breaking the scale plus a few dishes!! Its been a long road and I just didn’t think it would take this long!!! I started almost a year ago, to be exact in two weeks will be my One year start date I have been at this diet, healthy eating, blah, blah,blah, AND still not at goal !!!
Do I give up, throw in the towel, cry my eyes out and anything else I can think of! ???Getting a Work Out in the Winter!
It took me 35 years to get unhealthy!! So what makes me think I can do it in months!!!
What was I thinking?? What am I thinking!! Ok I understand that sorta! It’s the American way “I want to it now”!!! But In reality it’s not going to happen that quick when I have more than 25 pounds to lose ; But Hey that’s ok I have learnt a lot in the process and a lot about me! I didn’t gain it overnight and I’m not going to lose it overnight!
Yes it would be so easy, a relief not to worry or think about food all the time, what to eat, what should I eat, how much to eat, etc.etc….. Healthy Living At Least Trying
Number one; I , me, you, we can’t keep thinking about that damn scale all the time that in its self, will drive you to depression or a BIG food party!! It’s not always the scale or the numbers where we can see the rewards; It can be many other things such as smaller cloths, feeling more energy, off medications and more, you get the idea. So no lets not throw in the towel and yes we will have our ups and downs and victories some on the scale, some off the scale. Maybe we do have a medical issue that at times it flares up and causes some weight gain and the next week it’s better, We just have to remember that and take it into consideration. That is one of my issues I had a bowel resection and I’m in constant battle with foods and constipation. (sorry for the bad visual) . But some us have some kind of health issue that will get in the losing weight way time and again and that’s ok just don’t beat yourself up over it! Your body will catch up.
So I guess what I’m saying is, This Healthy Journey is a “MIND SET” It’s not just reading a diet book or a new trend and saying, “Hey I’m going to do this! ” You have to get it set in your mind, and make a plan! OR IT JUST BECOMES A WISH !!!
So NO we are not going to quit! not now not ever!! Living Healthy is not just a diet it is a way of life and once you reach your healthy goal you have to maintain it right??
RIGHT! Think about it if you have turned your life around and now living healthy enjoying life, happier than ever, don’t you want to keep it that way?? Well I sure do !!!
Not saying you will never get to eat the foods you want to, you can just do it moderately and be accountable for it! Maybe more exercise that week you know your going out or for a special occasion. Remember to drink your daily water, watch your sugar, up your exercise that’s all planning ahead! Let me put this out right here I’m NOT a Dr, a Diet Guru or Specialist I’m just me sharing my thoughts and what I have been through and believe me its been tough but man It’s been worth it to feel the freedom and happiness in so many ways and so MY fight MY journey continues one day at time with a positive mindset! At least for today right?? Right! And you can too just never give up, never throw in the towel!! Getting over the Hurdles
