As of today I have lost 8 pounds and 14.5 inches! I know I said I would never do it, but I have. I have become an Independent Team Beachbody Coach. It just feels so good to be getting in shape that I want others to feel the same. Don’t get me wrong, I have had some serious doubts and horrible days over the past few weeks. That’s why I call this a journey, there is a new discovery every day.
Here are some of my discoveries (Good, bad and ugly):
- I cried on Day 1 during the workout. I couldn’t believe it, Day 1 and I wanted to quit? I just felt so horribly out of shape and immediately doubted myself. BUT, I pressed on and truly have felt a little stronger every day.
- When the scale didn’t drop as fast or as frequently as I had wished, I thought about quitting. I thought about eating whatever and whenever I wanted. I thought about giving up and told myself I can start again next month. BUT, I didn’t want to give up the gains I already had earned. I wasn’t going to be weak, because I didn’t want to be that person anymore. I didn’t have to be that person because I had decided to do this, and that was that.
- Drinks and cake on my husbands birthday, I missed a workout one day, a night out with friends. Each time I thought, ” That’s it, I ruined it, now I won’t do as well as I wanted to. Now I won’t lose as much weight and as many inches as I could have. I will look like a failure.” BUT, I come back around and I know this is a long process and no one expects me to lose all of the weight in 21 days.
So now I embrace this journey and realize it will take time. How much time? As much as it takes, that’s how much time. It doesn’t matter how much time it takes because I am changing my life. Taking control of myself, my eating, my happiness, my craziness, everything.
