Wow, I certainly never thought I would EVER refer to myself as a ‘Weight Watcher’ – not ever 🙅🏾♀️ Yet it was made apparent to me (ever so painfully) that I needed to make that oh so dreadful change 💪🏾
You see on the first day of this new year I looked at myself in the mirror and I was honestly not able to smile back to my reflection. “Is that ME?” I asked myself, as if I could answer me. I genuinely could not believe that things had gotten so out-of-control! My frame of my body has gone past the ‘well rounded’ stage, the clothes I had on no longer enhanced the shape of my body – wait ✋🏾 “Are they even my size??!”
So what do I do now that I have reached this point? Don’t get me wrong, I love my body with curves at the, otherwise, sharp edges. Yet it was never my intention to become like ‘this’.
I then climbed onto the bathroom scale and weighed myself, woah – I received the shock of my life 😱 I later downloaded a weightloss app and filled in my weight and body measurements 😭 Guys, I am OBESE and I mean that I am type two obese 😶
I immediately sat myself down and had a conversation with me: “Can you see how bad it’s become? You are no longer happy with yourself, nor are you even comfortable either! We have to make a change, we’re making a change right?”
That is the exact moment I decided to begin my journey to a healthier, happier me 😀
Alright I do realise that my fitness journey will require me to be fully committed to it. I am an individual who believes in slow, gradual progress – what I have done is I have developed a system of doing things that will help me in reaching the weight end-goal. This system of mine includes a healthy diet, a challenging exercise routine and loads of patience for the journey.
Lesson: if you see something that you’re not happy with analyse your situation. If you can change it work towards that, and if it’s beyond your control work on your attitude and perception 👓
Yours in ✍🏾
