#perserverance is stubbornness with a #purpose
.
Well that surely does define me!! ☺️
.
I refused to let myself even consider for one moment that I would reach my weight loss goals. Despite my sagging skin from 2 babies, despite our lack of disposable income to hire a trainer or get a gym membership. I wouldn’t even let myself think for one moment that this won’t work.
.
I saw the success stories of others who completed the program and how they talked about support, accountability and meal planning. I NEEDED THAT SUPPORT!! I couldn’t do it alone.
.
I had zero idea what clean eating was but I was going to learn, research and apply until I got it correct.
.
People told me I was crazy and even made fun of clean eating. But my will to succeed out weighted my desire to remain the same.
.
Blinders on- focused forward-I refused to deviate from the meal plan and workout schedule.
.
I truly believe there is something to be said about the fact that 6 years later I have maintained the results, tweak the plan and have learned to listen to my body.
.
It wasn’t always seamless- I hit plateaus, I gained a few pounds but now the tools are there forever.
.
Moral of the story— persevere despite the odds, roadblocks and obstacles and you will outlast all the others who focus on short term vs lifestyle.
.
Be in it for the long haul #nevergiveup this is your life story. Write it YOUR WAY!! ✌✌
