Funny thing…when I started losing weight & fighting for my healthiness journey, I remember telling myself once I got “there” that it would be so much easier.

Funny thing…when I started losing weight & fighting for my healthiness journey, I remember wondering why it wasn’t working.
I experienced frequent self-doubt. Despite my own questions, I kept going. On the days I woke up with no motivation, I cried. Loud. And then, I washed my face and went to the gym. I never stopped. And now, looking back at the past three years, I am befuddled. Right next to the self-doubt I experienced, sat a source of belief. I believed in myself. I knew I could do it. I knew that, even on days when I didn’t feel like it, I had to keep going. Just keep living life. I knew that if I just kept trying, kept doing what I needed to do, that things would work out.
Stop and think about what she writes for a minute:
“Even on my worst days I believe I am my own superhero if only by virtue of the fact that I find it within myself to keep on keepin’ on.
And on my best day? I KNOW Im my own damn superhero because I know I can move mountains.
I know there’s nothing I cant do if I try (you know, due to my superhero status) and Im not afraid to try.
I am confident enough to stand here and tell you that, your opinion of me makes no difference to me. I believed in myself. Three years later, I finally realize….
The most amazing feeling in the world is to look back at hard work and see the results. (although it takes the mind an amazing amount of time to actually see those results, that is for another post.) Please please…read MizFit’s post on being your own superhero and then, take a deep breath and put on your cape. You are the only one who can do this.
I believe in you.
