Personal Epiphany

Friday, February 12, 2016

I just had a personal epiphany. I remembered that my goal weight was 190 lbs and I am currently 216 lbs. That means I only need to lose 26 lbs to reach my goal weight. Some people may say 26 lbs is a lot. But I say that's nothing. So far I lost 59 lbs. that's 69% completed. I only have 31% left to go. Truthfully the first party of my journey was the most difficult. I had to break free from my sugar dependency. Plus I had to incorporate different activities that I didn't care to do. I learned that my body can do and accomplish a lot if I just try.


The difficult part of this portion of my journey is the slowness of it all. It was fast in the beginning. Now I have to learn to be happy with maintaining weight or losing just one lb. plus I am learning to listen to my body. Which foods make me feel better. I'm actually craving healthier foods and my stomach cringes at the thought of eating certain junk food. Let's be real. It hurts now when I eat certain foods.

Regardless to how I feel about the length of the journey, this has truly become a lifestyle. I might not be where I want to be but I'll get there. I'll be the turtle. Let the hares get there quickly and gain it back. My slow pace is guaranteeing that it will last

    It's great when the end of a major undertaking becomes visible enough to be seen as an achievable goal. Good for you, you already sound successful in all the changes you have made and part of all that rubs off on us.

    Yay for epiphanies! The path ahead can seem so overwhelming that we forget to look back and see how far we've come. Well done, turtle. ;)

    You are the best judge of how the journey turns out. Even when you reach your goal weight don't stop eating right and exercising. This is a lifestyle for the rest of our lives. So the journey is never ending.
