Thanks to Terrell Owens for saying that and it has become ever so true for me!!!
For the last few weeks (okay, maybe longer) I have been TOTALLY frustrated about my lack of progress and was seriously considering giving up this whole thing and accept the fact that I couldn't lose weight...at all...even my buddy tried to keep my spirits lifted and gave me some great tips to try and kick start things again(thanks to everyone that sent me encouraging words..I appreciated it)!
Well your mind can play some real games on you (as you all know) and I was feeling totally defeated by the Weight Monster until I remembered something..I DON'T QUIT EASILY..this thing will not get the best of me and even if it takes years (hope it doesn't cause I am very impatient on some things), I will ultimately win...
So with that in mind I reviewed what I had been doing in the food and fitness department and I see now there are some things that I need to get in order..namely the gym...I have done the classes, walked/ran the treadmill, changed intensity, etc. and that hasn't worked before...or has it? I looked back over some of my workouts and realized that I wasn't working out as hard as I should have been..so I hired a personal trainer!! Yes, I realize that I need someone to stand over me like I am a 3 yr old and push me harder than I pushed myself..sad but true!!
Can I afford this "luxury"? The better question is "could I afford NOT to invest the money/time if I want to reach my goals?"...I think I can make the sacrifice when the ultimate goal is still within reach..It will be hard but I am sure I won't regret it because in the end, I will be happy that I did what I had to do to get to where I wanted to be! I will be able to go shopping with confidence, look good in my clothes, and all the things that go along with feeling better about yourself!
A small price to pay but of course "I love me some me" so it's WORTH IT!!
