Losing weight is a choice, it is not can or can't. it is simply a will or wont. In November I made the decision to lose weight, eat better, and work out, so that I can live a healthy and prosperous lifestyle, not only for myself, but for my children, and my family.
The mind plays funny tricks on you and sometimes there's a little devil that sits on your shoulder saying, "you can't do this." You begin to question yourself, wondering if you really can. After weeks of doubt, I decided to tell him YES I CAN!! He then started taunting me with "ok, so maybe you can do this, but you still won't". That took me a while longer to get over until I got it in my head to say "YOU WANNA BET? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED" One thing about me is I'm very competitive.. I love a good challenge. Although I made the decision in November, that doesn't mean I started in November, but soon there after, I finally did start. I signed up to this website yesterday and completed my first official workout (zumba) today. So to the little devil sitting on my shoulder, I say "come on, what you got for me next?"
