I am working on myself, by myself, for myself.
If you are on this journey for ANY other reason, get on another road. This one is for you. It is to make you stronger, happier, healthier and the best you can possibly be.
I started off 120 pounds heavier, never really thinking I could do this. Every single day I did, made it easier. Every single thing I did for me, made me believe. Every single minute of exercise made me stronger, and happier. Every single pound made me better at this.
This has been my journey. I am still on it and will be on it forever, because I have never felt better in my life. It is an awesome and incredibly wonderful feeling.
Yesterday, my darling Daughter was talking to me about getting leggings. I cringed. She said, Mom, you look great. You could buy some and wear them to the gym. I thought about it and said to myself, well, maybe. I still have the mindset that I could do better, look better. I am still working on me, and excited about where I am going. I don't really like leggings, but could get them if I wanted to, and don't have to shop for extra large sizes anymore.
Make yourself your priority. Your number one priority. You can do this, because it is for you, and you are an important, vital, imperfect, perfect person, and you are worth every single second of your effort.
Don't let anyone stand in your way. You are a force to be reckoned with. You are a shining star. You can do anything that you set your mind to, and today, set your mind to your future self and your continuing health. You will be grateful that you did.
I know I am!!
