Learning to Trust the Process

“I can achieve what I want, no matter how long it will take. Everyday is a step closer to achieving your goal. Make sure you keep things real and do what you have to do. The blessing will come and it will transform yourself and life. We only regret the things that are not done with the heart”-Andrea Brazier

Hi Folks

We live in a society that thrives on instant gratification. Anything that we want, we can get, and we can get it NOW! I’m finding out that this is not the case when it comes to weight loss. Even though I know this, it can be completely disheartening when you do everything right (diet and exercise) and the scale doesn’t budge.

One thing that I’m learning is that the scale is not my friend, especially when I’m doing a lot of body weight exercises and lifting weights (8 or 10# for now). I have noticed that my body is leaner and I‘m building muscles (I’m loving those). Changes are happening, regardless of what that scale says. I have to begin to pay closer attention to my body and how it looks and feels in my clothes. I also have to keep track of my general health and well being, healthy living feels good.

I’m learning to continue to trust the process and know that if I keep up with what I’ve been doing, I’ll reach my goal and look fabulous in the process.
