Two years difference 💙 There is no easy way, there is no secret 💙 It’s gonna take hard work and sacrifice 💙 You will want to give up, you will cry, you will probably think you can’t do it 💙 But you can 💙 Never give up on yourself because you are capable of so much more than you think 💙 DO NOT GIVE UP 💙

6 Tips for Building and Sticking to New Habits

1. Put it on your schedule (and make sure you check your schedule!)

2. Tell your friends (so you become accountable.)

3. Build a new habit onto a current routine.

4. Find a partner who wants to do it with you.

5. Plan in advance to make it easy for yourself.

6. Imagine the feeling when you stick to the new habit, and replay that picture in your mind frequently.

First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.
—  Octavia E. Butler, “Furor Scribendi” in Bloodchild and Other Stories

Exactly 1 year apart, approx 73lb weight loss. I still would like to lose 10-15 more lbs and then I’ll continue to focus on building more muscle. I am doing that now, however it’s hard for the body to lose weight and gain muscle at the same time. I’m not happy with where I’m at. It’s hard to have patience because this is a LONG process. Lots of sweat and tears. It’s been very hard, but I have to keep going no matter what. Like today. I’m exhausted. I have an injured knee but I still dragged myself to the gym.

I know it doesn’t always seem like it but you can change. You don’t have live an unhappy life. You don’t have to be plagued by obesity. You don’t have to be ashamed or embarrassed of your body. You CAN be healthy. You CAN be confident. You can be whatever you want. You just have to work for it. Put yourself first. You’re worth the investment. 🖤
