So let's talk shopping while losing weight. Holy crap-it's expensive! I lost 13 sizes from a 26 to a 2. Every time I lost another size I wanted to go buy a whole new wardrobe. (And at first, I did.) But as I lost more and more it was harder to keep up with. I'll be doing a YouTube next week on some suggestions on what to wear as you lose weight-and how to get the most out of your clothes. For now-I love places like Ross, Marshalls, and TJM. Some say I'm cheap, I say I'm smart. This dress? $11. Can't beat that. 😎
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are. Leaving your comfort zone is not just scary-it's terrifying. But without that first step-you will forever remain where you are. With weight loss-I don't think there is ever an end point. I don't think you ever just wake up one day and think "I have arrived". There are always things you want to do to improve your physical, mental, and spiritual health. What goals are you working on? What is keeping you from taking that first step?
I found this little gem in my drawer the other day: my 'before' swim suit. Same suit. Just not 100 sizes too small anymore. "In any given moment, we have two options: to step forward into growth, or to step back into safety. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again." -Abraham Maslow Getting healthy and staying there is a constant battle. A constant fight. It's a daily choice. You have to learn to embrace and love the struggle. When you do this, your new lifestyle changes become your habits. Your habits help you form the new version of yourself. What is one thing you can change today? What is one small habit you can begin to form to work towards your goals? Happy #transformationtuesday
When embarking on a new journey-it's easy to feel daunted, overwhelmed....terrified. I read a quote yesterday that I love..."you can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore". Courage isn't something you wake up with. It's found in the small improvements we make on a daily basis. It's constant repetition of these improvements. It's knowing that there is no 'try'...you either do or do not. Today-whatever is stopping you or holding you back...reach deep down and find the courage to push past it-even if just a little. Choose to DO today.
