Staying Focused

Some days it’s nice to remember that while I am not at my goal weight, I am far from where I started. I began my journey at 230 lbs, a size 20 or XXL. I now wear a medium and around an 8/10 most of the time (depends on brand). I am getting closer to my goal every day I make healthy choices. As we draw near to the end of the year, I can honestly say I am happy with where I am with my with weight and am hopeful about continuing to maintain my weight loss another year. It’s been 4 years and I have learned so much about being healthier. As I focus on my mental health during this season I know my physical health will only continue to improve even more.

Today I went to the gym to begin some personal training sessions to get even more focused on my fitness goals. I generally work out at home on my own. This season has been learning a lot about my own weaknesses and accepting that it’s ok to admit that I need help. I am looking forward to a workout designed with my needs in mind and catering to my goals. I have about 15 lbs I want to lose and I want to work on rebuilding my strength that I’ve lost over time due to my declining health. I am hopeful about the progress that will be gained by having someone else leading the way and having extra accountability with my workouts. One day at a time, one healthy choice and workout at a time will get me closer to my goals. I refuse to give up on my health journey. I’ve invested too much time and energy into it to stop now!
