Now that I’ve realized how easy it is to lose weight when you have the right mindset, I could easily beat myself up mentally for being overweight for over twenty years. Especially now I realize I really didn’t have to be.
Instead I’m looking at this as a wonderful opportunity. I’ve always believed things happen for a reason. Especially over the past couple of years. The old saying “when life throws you lemons make lemonade” is so true.
Without going through everything, steadily gaining weight, becoming diabetic and then ultimately my health journey, losing all that weight, getting off diabetes medication, becoming a runner. Without all that I wouldn’t have such a powerful story to share. And I wouldn’t have such a strong desire to inspire and help others who are going through what I went through. I have a purpose now, a mission to reach out and help people. Since I’ve been sharing my story all over social media I’ve lost count how many times I’ve been told I’m an inspiration. I’d never been called that in my life before I started my journey. And it IS a journey.
It’s all down to mindset. Get that right and you can achieve anything your heart desires.
