I'm not giving up on me

Tuesday, July 21, 2020

I am so close to reaching my weight loss goal. 

WW has been a blessing. During this time of social isolation, the corporation did a great job keeping us connected. 

I have relied on their motivation and encouragement weekly to help me reach my health and weight loss goals. 

The thing is, regardless of the motivation and support I receive, I'm the one who needs to do the work. My motivators do not get to do the work for me. 

I made the difficult choice to lose weight during the pandemic because I decided not to give up on myself. It was difficult. 

I admit it would be understanding to let go and just coast for months. The problem was, I spent years praying to change. I waited to change. I took multiple baby steps that led me to where I am. 

I simply can't give up now.

WW is not for everyone. Just like any program out there, it receives its criticism. I don't mind criticism. I learned to listen and let go. Do you know why?

Critics are not paying for my membership. They are not doing the hard work of buying food, cooking fresh food, pre-packing meals, and feeding my family. 

I let go because I am responsible for what I put in my own mouth and how much I exercise. 

I'm not giving up. I want to finish what I started. With God's help and by His strength (along with my own perseverance and hard work) I will reach my goal.

Question: What is the one thing you won't give up during this pandemic?
