My Aha! Moment

Saturday, January 25, 2014

My journey of losing weight has been a long struggle for me. Not staying motivated and making excuses has kept me from achieving my weight loss goals. I had always had a way of getting back on track by saying to myself that I refuse to weigh over 300lbs. It was something that has helped me to snap out of my funk and do what I needed to get back on my weight loss journey.

That all changed recently as I was looking through different teams to join on SP. I came across the team for those that are over 300lbs and for the first time since joining back in 2009, I couldn't say that I couldn't join that team because I am over 300lbs right now. This actually stopped me in my tracks and made me snap back into reality. I have been using the excuse of not being 300 plus, but now that I am 300 plus what am I going to do about it?

The moment has been sticking with me since it happened yesterday and I am using it as the fuel to keep me going on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I will not let excuses get in the way of me being successful. I may have road blocks from time to time, but I need to remember that there is always a detour around to help me get over it. I refuse to fail and I will not stop until I get to the goal. Yes, all 300 plus of me is going to achieve success this time around.
