Week 2 has come to a close in Destination Transformation. I did not gain or lose just kinda rock steady, however I got lots accomplished. I am registered back into Kick-Boxing it’s a great cardio work out and you get to vent lots of frustrations through kicking and punching. Best-Stress relief ever!
When it comes to losing weight it can be a very beautiful horrible time. It’s hard work our body goes through changes and some people may try to make you tolerate their B.S because they see you as a ” diva down ” who is a diva who is turning her luck and changing her life around for the better and it can scare these people because sometimes when we change people have to face themselves and realize they made need some changing too so people will watch you, judge you, rate you, hate you; then there are those who will some will love you, encourage you, strengthen you, and inspire you. Those are the ones you want on your Christmas card list 🙂 The negative people they can kick rocks. Get Over it. You’re not looking in their direction because this Diva is moving on!
I have battled with my weight back and forth like a tug-o-war for years! I would get motivated then stop begin and then stop. True it’s all progress but there will come a time when you get frustrated. There will come a time when enough is enough. There come a time when you put YOU first. There will come a time when you have to look yourself in the mirror and stop ALL the excuses.
There will come a time when you want it so bad it is on the tip of your tongue yet you can barely taste it. It will be your first thought when you wake up and your last thought before you go to bed. You are going to WANT this.
It’s human nature we tend to go for the things that we WANT rather than the things that we NEED. Starting a weight loss journey or a fitness journey puts you in the driver’s seat of your life.
It gives us the best of both worlds once we demand it as a WANT and we earn it, only then will we shift gears and sustain it as a need we tend to fear things that we will lose and believe me I’m not there yet but I know once I reach goal I never want to go back to where I was!
Take Note: In general people do not WANT change that is why it is so crucial to really ask ourselves WHY DO I WANT TO GET HEALTHY? DEMAND IT FROM YOURSELVES! YOU HAVE TO WANT IT WORK AT IT AND ATTAIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN EVER SEE IT AS A NEED, FEAR OF LOSS IS GREATER THAN THE DESIRE FOR GAIN IN OUR LIVES. SO MAKE YOUR GOAL BIG MAKE IT COUNT MAKE IT SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR MAKE IT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN NOT LOSE!
There is no time like the present, you can have all the MOTIVATION in the world, all the support in the world, but when you get to the “durty durty” and (I’n not talking about Atlanta ) of it all. It’s all you Diva. WE MUST TAKE ACTION!
It’s ALL on you. It’s all IN you. You’ve got this sister! It’s all about YOU!
Losing weight is something that you have to do FOR YOURSELF but you do not have to do it BY YOURSELF.
That’s what support groups, friends, and family are for. To SUPPORT think of them like a good bra while you are on your journey to living the best days of our life!
