The program is started, the nutrition is dialed in, and you’re sore. I promise you it balances out. Some say it doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger. Which in some ways is true. It does get easier to keep the meal plans and nutrition going, your body stops craving the junk that you no longer need. Your body gets stronger and more flexible the more you get up and are active. So stuff that seemed hard at one point, do get easier in a way. Be it through mental training and repetition for ease that way, or through physical activity and strength gained to make harder tasks easier to perform.
Don’t discount your progress, and don’t give up. You’re still getting started and adjusting to the changes. Don’t let A little success be all that you need, strive for more. Strive to chisel away the best you that you can find. And don’t think that means you have to be skinny to be happy. Please. Ignore the meme “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” It’s not about being skinny. It’s about being HEALTHY. I change the saying to reflect that statement. “NOTHING tastes as good as HEALTHY feels.”
You are the prize at the end of the hard work, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. What you are starting to do is that rainbow, that road to your healthy and happy. Keep up the work. Keep getting up and pressing play. Continue to make healthier choices in your food. Will it be a perfect and immediate results? No. It takes hard work and dedication. And you may never find the “skinny” that others have. You can still be healthy and have extra weight. We are all built different. The important thing is you are working to make a healthier life for yourself.
And I’m here to cheer you on and help you as you move forward. I’m here to help you find what works for YOU. Because you are unique and what works for me may not work for you. Allow me to help you and cheer you on. Turn to your Doctor to learn what you can and cannot feasibly do. Read. Learn. Don’t rely on others alone to provide you with the tools and solutions you seek. You have to be an active, vocal and integral part of the changes you seek. You can do it. You will do it. You made the commitment. Keep it going!
