Sticking to weight loss, or working hard at changing years of ingrained, bad habits is seriously hard work.
Because when you work hard, you deserve to be rewarded with results you can see and feel and when you can’t see success (whether that’s a drop on the scale or a shift in energy levels) you wonder “what’s the point of trying?” am I right?
I know what it’s like to work really hard towards a goal and feel like you’re going nowhere. It’s as though time stands still and every push you make to inch just a little bit closer is confronted by resistance.
It’s one of the reasons why I started and quit my own weight loss path so many times before finding the right formula.
Not to mention, I had that feeling of wanting the results “NOW” so badly that it lead to my own vicious cycle of weight gain, then extreme dieting and restrictions, followed by that feeling that I couldn’t take it anymore. I’d give up and the cycle would start all over again.
So how did I push past the voice that said “I want to give up” and finally succeed not only in achieving a healthy weight, but also in creating my healthiest, most energized quality of life and being able to share simple solutions with you?
It came in 2 Easy steps:
1. I ditched Generic plans that offered one size fit’s all solutions.
2. I started to celebrate every single win, even the smallest ones.
I try to live with the mantra “Celebrate your wins” in every aspect of my life. Not just in my own healthy lifestyle, but also when it comes to helping you reclaim your best health and energy and lead your highest quality of life.
Whether it’s blogging, creating workout programs, supporting Fit Over 50 Facebook groups or coaching women after 50 online and in person. I work very hard to help you transform yourself and I feel so excited to be a part of each and every one of your wins.
Today, I wanted to share a celebration, a win that I had and a win that I realized I was glossing over and not embracing
I realized when I wasn’t celebrating the moment, I was doing what so many of my amazing clients do when they see “only” a 2 pound drop in weight in one week,
Or when they don’t feel overjoyed by their ability to run upstairs when only 6 weeks earlier they could barely walk at all.
I wasn’t giving myself permission to feel proud of my accomplishments and celebrate my wins. and if all we do is work hard all the time and never take a moment to see how far we’ve come, we’ll burn out and give up and that’s the exact opposite of the healthy lifestyle we’re trying to achieve.
We all work very hard and we deserve to celebrate our wins! So today I’m going to share my very special win with you:
