A Hard Word to Follow

Sunday, February 19, 2017

Wow, it's been awhile since being on here! Nothing changed for my life unless you count me not losing any weight and being heavier then I have in my life at the beginning of the year. What happened? Nothing. That's it, no excuse can suffice for my laziness. It's easier to just give up and find an excuse to mask the reality of it all.

I gave up on myself in 2016. I let a family issue take over my life and forgot about me. Even though I am still dealing with it, there is no excuse for me to not be taking care of myself. I have warning signs that let me know that I need to get it together and get back on my journey before I develop health issues.

I did have one good thing that happened in 2016 and that was getting my certification to become a certified holistic nutritionist. My first client is myself. I will be my walking advertisement.

In 2017, I plan on reaching my goals that I will set for myself. Starting today, I will take my weight loss seriously and keep my possible development of certain health issues as my motivation. The first step that I need to do is to do a word that has been hard for me to follow: consistency.

I am a serial starter. I always make plans, but I always seem to find an excuse as to why I didn't start a program on the day that I said I was going to. That mindset is literally killing me and I need to stop planning and just do it.

I joined Weight Watchers last month to help me with my excuses of not wanting to keep track of calories. I like the smart points system and helps me to not stress out so much. I just need to start working out. I got the eating part down now.

I started making weekly updated videos on my youtube channel as another way of keeping myself consistent. It's also another way to help me have a place to showcase to potential clients that I know how to lose weight.

I hope to write a blog post here as well as sparkpeople has always helped me to keep motivated. I hope to stay consistent on here as I do on my other social media platforms.

I have a lot of plans that I want to do, but what I want to work on this week is to form a routine that I can follow. I can do it and I will prove to myself that I am not all talk and that I can be consistent, even if its a hard word to follow.

    You took the first step when you joined WW. Following the food plan for 30 days so far demonstrates that you can be consistent. Your plans to add the next component this week are terrific.
    We know you can and more importantly WILL do this---one day at a time.
