Choose your hard.

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Yes, sometimes this journey we have chosen is hard. I'm not going to lie about that. I have to keep my goals constantly within view to stay motivated. I have to be determined every day. If you need help with motivation, do a photo collage & look at it several times a day. Include photos of you looking slimmer. If you don't have any, use photos of slim people -- the photos don't have to be of you. I have before & after photos on my collage of people who have lost a lot of weight. In your collage, include reasons why you want to lose weight, or eat healthier foods, or whatever your goals are (run a marathon, run a half marathon, etc.).

Don't make excuses. Just do what you have to do to reach your goals.

Keep trying. Keep pushing.

Keep stepping.

Don't forget to be yourself. emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Eash of our journeys is different and we can still encourage each other since our goal is all the same. When we can see the end, it is worth everything. emoticon

    This is an amazing statement of how we can choose what will be our journey. Yes, weight loss is hard, but i think being sick is harder. God bless you, Nilla!
