“The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.” – Sven Goran Eriksson
Weight loss this week - 2 lbs.
Weight loss total = 40 lbs.
This past weekend my uncle celebrated his 65th birthday. Seeing family members that I haven't seen in almost a year was nice. A bunch of them who live in the city of Chicago are the ones I only see a few times a year. I live in the suburbs. Having them tell me that I've changed so much since the last time they saw me made me feel accomplished.
My change made a difference and it shows. Do you know how great that feels. Having my family members tell them they were proud of me and how far I've come made me happy. But then most of them would do the usual line.. "Tell me your secret.. I wish I could do what you've done." I always answer with the same line.. "You can do it too." They always walk away shaking their head saying they can't, It's not that easy.
Funny how that was me a year ago. I always would complain of how I needed to change and lose weight. Then my wake up call came knocking. My cousin passed away. Dying at the age of 37 and leaving a wife and daughter behind is not where I want to be too. I didn't want to leave my husband and two children behind. So I took my first step. With the help of my lifelong best friend Shannon, I joined the mamavation community.
So when someone tells you you're getting so tiny, you're looking so good, keep it up. That's the motivation you need to keep going and also know that you're doing something right.
I hope everyone has a great week. Happy Monday everyone :)
