Losing weight one pound at a time
When I started 21 Day Fix, I was pumped, and I stuck to it better than any other program I've ever done. I've tried quite a few programs. I lost 7 pounds quickly. I hit a plateau. I pushed through. I lost 4 more pounds. I hit a plateau. I lost a few more pounds. I hit a plateau. You get the point. When I say plateau, I'm talking about doing everything right, and not losing for two weeks. I'm nursing, so my body is holding onto weight like crazy, but sometimes we just get in ruts. I've learned to trust in the process, and keep pushing through. Professionals created this program, and other Beachbody programs. Many, many, many people have seen results. Many people have lost a ton of weight on these programs. It wouldn't be so if they didn't work. But you have to trust in the process.
I have sweat like crazy, I have bled, okay only a little from a popped blister but still!, and I've cried while working out. There are days I would rather sleep in than get up before my kids and workout. There are days I would rather eat candy instead of a salad and grilled chicken. On those days, I remember why I started. Why am I doing this?
I am worth it. My family is worth it. My customers and friends are worth it. This is why I push myself. This is why I cook all of these meals and try to find healthy but yummy meals for my family and for my friends. This is why I sweat and get stinky. This is why I yell at my TV and push on instead of pushing stop and turning the TV off. This is why I won't give up. Because of how much better I feel when I keep going. Because of all of those who are counting on me. And because I AM WORTH IT.
