Don't be fooled. Weight loss journeys are hard.
They're full of good intentions, set-backs, do-overs, challenges, victories, delays, struggles, hard work, repetition, tears, and second-winds.
They take work.
The most important thing you can do is set your sights on turning your dream into your reality and lock it in!
When it gets tough, when new habits come hard, when you want to overeat, when you want to mask emotions with food, when you feel like a failure, when you feel like being lazy, when you don't feel positive, when you're tempted with insecurity and inferiority, and when you want to give up, say to yourself
"I HAVE IT WITHIN ME - RIGHT NOW - TO GET ME TO WHERE I WANT TO BE LATER!"
Believe it! Embrace it! Live it!
Visualize yourself living that new life. Close your eyes and imagine the different feelings that come with being healthy, thinner, active, accomplished! Believe that it can happen for you! Remember, you deserve happiness and God wants to bless you with a fulfilled life that honors Him! When it gets really hard, never forget how big God is. He can move mountains!
