I spent almost all of my life being overweight. That means it took me almost thirty years to get where I was.
It took me years to get to a point where walking up the stairs felt like torture.
It took years for me to get to a point where going for a walk sounded like punishment instead of pleasure. Especially when I hadn’t done it for a long time and my body would begin to itch all over.
I was not born obese. It took me a lot of time.
So why did think or wanted to lose all my weight overnight?
It took all of me not to give up at times especially when I first started.
Even now when I plateau I battle with myself daily.
I want to reach my goal weight today. Is it possible? No. But I want it to be so.
Logically, I know it’s impossible. I know it will probably take me years to get where I want to be. But at times I’m not logical.
We all want things done on our time. But the time it takes us to reach our goals on this journey is a gift.
The blood sweat and tears that we endure will serve us as a bittersweet reminder of where we were and what we had to go through to get where we want to be.
We need to remember anything good takes time. From the time of conception to birth takes approximately nine months.
So from the very beginning, I told myself to give yourself a year and see where you are if you don’t give up.
So give yourself time. Time to be great and time to become the best version of yourself.
Remember the first step is trying and the next step is not giving up when things get hard!
