I weighed myself this morning. I don’t know how many of you guys know this, but I struggle with a weight issue. I’ve been big all my life, and I continue to struggle against it everyday. It can be kind of disheartening to wake up every morning and see that your weight isn’t fluctuating, though you’re eating less and exercising your ass off.
A plateau is a horrible thing to hit in your weight loss goals, though they happen all the time if you have large amounts of weight to lose. I’m going to tell you, you can work through it. Half an hour a day walking, or some other form of physical activity outside your norm, can change your life. Hell, it can do more than change it, it can save it.
This past year, I’ve lost over 150 lbs, with only 200 more to go from my goal. Last year at this time, I would have problems even standing, let alone going for a walk. One day at a time, I’ve used my stubborness to get closer to my goal. And though I’ve plateaued right now, I know I’ll break through it as long as I keep on keeping on. It’s all about perseverance.
One day at a time, you conquer your demons. If you get in the habit of taking enough time out of your day to improve yourself, before you know it, you’ll be a greater person than you ever expected. A little bit at a time, it will add up to the greatest version of you.
