Here is my most recent “progress picture”. It shows me at 155.5. I took it on September 18th. (Before my weekend in Breck)
I wanted to give you guys a little peek into the positives. These are the updates I had in 2015 as I shared with my friends and family on Facebook. I’ll go further in depth about the couple of months I really didn’t show any progress on another blog post some time this week.
The point I want to make is that it is imperative to celebrate your success’ as they come. You may not be anywhere near your final goal, but progress is progress. Everyone has to start somewhere and you need to be proud of yourself and the steps you take along the way. Some people advise not to tell anyone you are trying to lose weight or make a lifestyle change because it makes you look like a fool if you fail.
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I feel the opposite. I have an amazing support system in my friends and family. I know for a fact that they want to see me succeed. I feel pushed as well as motivated by them. If you do not have people in your life that make you feel this way, find an online community that does. Places like reddit have amazing groups of people that will be there to support you and will give you a shoulder to lean on when you need it. On top of that, if you don’t have anyone in your life that will support you in your decision to become a better version of yourself… Perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate some things and make some major changes.
That being said, here are my success’ from 2015. Care to share some of yours?
