I remember the frustration of those first few months when the scale didn’t change. I was obsessed with seeing a new (lower) number on the scale. The other ladies in my accountability group were losing a few pounds every week, but I was not. 😭😭. Looking back, I am grateful for that struggle. Sure, I would have loved to have seen the weight come off sooner, but in the delay, I learned so much!
👉🏻This is MY journey, not theirs. Stop comparing.
👉🏻How am I really doing? Where are my thoughts? Are they empowering me or calling me a failure?
👉🏻An I being truthful with myself or am I making excuses?
👉🏻Am I wholeheartedly following my plan -daily nutrition, exercise, water, sleep, tracking?
👉🏻Am I seeking support from my coach?
👉🏻Am I OWNING my journey and doing the work of becoming an expert in the study of one?
👉🏻Most importantly, am I relying on God, more than food?
As you can see, it is about so much more than a diet or a workout program. It is about WHOLEHEARTEDNESS.
I have to see this as more than just a battle to reach a certain number on the scale or get compliments. My mission is to rewrite my story about food being my comforter. God alone is my comforter. Food is fuel. I believe that is the root of struggle with most of the women I meet. You are not alone! 💕💕
Where are you in your journey? Better yet, where do you WANT to be?
