Learn to look at a setback as an opportunity instead of a failure. Setbacks are temporary not permanent. Setbacks can help us learn, grow and develop a sense of who we are and what we need to do to succeed. A setback can help us advance forward with a renewed mind and spirit - if we allow it to.
Embrace a gladiator mindset when embarqing on a weight loss journey!!
Losing 70 lbs was, by far, one of the most difficult experiences of my life. Mainly because it seemed to take FOREVER! It really only took 7 months but, when you want something bad enough that's an eternity! Focus your energy on doing it and not on doubt! You can do this! You are not an anomaly! Doubts are normal but, don't let them stear you from your goal! Set reasonable short term goals and reward yourself with a new outfit when you drop a size. Each 10lbs is a good goal.
Setbacks are normal! We all have slip ups but, embracing a mindset that is empowering changes how you see yourself. Nothing can hold you back when feel that you have the power to make changes. Be a gladiator for your body! Think of braveheart! Nothing can hold back a fighter from their goal..nothing
